This little guy is my Antilles Pinktoe (Avicularia Versicolor) spiderling, it is also known as the Martinique Red Tree Spider, which may seem a bit strange looking at it, but all will be explained. Continue reading “Its cute cause its blue! Yeah?”
Its Christmas!!!! Well, almost.
So, time to meet a movie star, although getting a signature could be an issue. Well, ok, this spider in particular isn’t a movie star but the species definitely is.
So, I seem to remember saying I would cover off the difference between old and new world species in my first post, so here goes.
So, because of the similarity in todays two species i’ve decided to add them both to the one post. Namely my Chile Rose Hair (Grammostola Rosea) and Chile Red Zebra (Grammostola sp Concepicon). Both of these Tarantulas originate from, yes you guessed it, Chile. The desert and scrub areas of Chile to be precise.
So, what I had planned on posting on this here blog was information on all my friends, one by one, in order of when I got them. However, this photo came out so well that I really had to share it first!
“Coco” is my Brazilian Black Tarantula (Grammostola Pulchra). Of all my current exotic pets, I’ve had Coco the longest. She has got an approximate leg span of 6″ (15cm) and being around 6 years old now she probably won’t grow much bigger. When I first got her she was still a juvenile and measured a mere 1″ (2.5cm) so I’ve been with her for quite a few molts.
I have been keeping exotic pets for around 6 years now. Throughout that time have kept and lost many different, spiders, insects and arachnids. I will post pictures and information on all of my current friends and any new ones I gain along the way. I’ve always been interested and fascinated with bugs and arachnids and this is my way of sharing the interest. I’ll add contact details so if anyone wants to, go ahead and Bug Me!
