    Default 3 new Ts - Blondi, OBT and Pokie

    well, I went to the shop to get some crickets and came home with these 3

    Blondi


    OBT


    Pokie


    Could someone please tell me which species the pokie is? I was told, but forgot

    Also, I've got her in a cereal container at the moment... is it too small??? it seems too small to me, but would like opinions before I re-house her again! here is a pic of her in situ

    Hi Faye, hope you don't mind i've moved this thread to the pix section due to content.
    As far as the spiders...three good choices there, the OBT looks all nicely settled in.

    Any chance of an image of the underside of the pokie? The abdomen looks quite fasciata to me, however the legs have a rufilata appearence..

    the cereal tub will be sufficient for another moult or two in my opinion

    no problem re. moving it ta

    The OBT is very settled - she came with her Exo Terra to save having to re-house her
    I'll try to get an image of the underside of the pokie - she's stretching out a bit more now too so I'll get a better dorsal shot too

    you've made some great choices there!
    gorgeous Pokie and blondi, and the OBT seems to be doing what OBT's do best, lurking

    i will be curious to see what that Pokie is...i went through all the species in the BTS galleries and nothing quite looks right!
    the front legs make me think of H maculata...lol

    I asked Sandy to pose nicely for some ventral pics and she obliged...
    sorry the pics aren't clear - the container isn't very see-through. I can try to get her in a clearer tub for pics if need be, but don't really want to disturb her til I know she's settled and eating etc.

    Do you know the sex of these 3. Would you mind me asking how much you paid for these? I dont know what you would normaly pay and I want a rough idea. I plan to go to the BTS show next year and get more T's because I dont want to be ripped off. May be you could go back to the shop with her and ask them what she is. They should remember.

    I'm sure the bloke will remember - he seemed very up on his spiders and gets most of his stock from Lee at the spider shop...
    They're all females and I paid 100 for the 3 spiders, an exo terra and some crickets, locusts and cork bark, so I couldn't tell you how much I paid for them individually

    That seems reasonable. It is an idea. Thanks

    The spider shop when it was at the bts show in coseley is where I got Dora from, my Lasiodora striatus. I could mail order with them.
