    Sexing tarantulas

    It's old, you've all seen it before but just for Stuart so he can link to the BTS web site now. The only real accurate way to sex a tarantula is by examining the epigynal area located between the anterior book lungs of the tarantulas shed skin but to do this you must first know what you are looking for. FEMALE ANATOMY This is a picture of the female sex organs located between the anterior book lungs (top pair). The spermathecae. Only present in females these are the sacks where the ma...

    HANDLING TARANTULAS & THE BTS CONSTITUTION

    HANDLING TARANTULAS & THE BTS CONSTITUTION By Martin Nicholas I think of all the “political” issues that get kicked around the internet tarantula forums, including the BTS forum, nothing is as contentious, divisive or controversial as the handling of tarantulas and that the “BTS ban it.” As public relations manager for the BTS I decided to put my head above the parapet and try and clarify the BTS position on handling in a way that removes any ambiguity and hopefully will put an end to the tor...

    An Improved Method of Artificial Incubation
    By Ray Gabriel
    My last article on artificial incubation (Gabriel 2004) was dedicated to an eaten egg-sac of Poecilotheria smithi. This article is dedicated to the same egg-sac, had I been confident enough to remove it earlier than 21 days it may not have been eaten. We have found that with this new incubator, egg-sacs can be removed much earlier, from 8–10 days, with nearly 100% success. From experience, this new style of incubator does...

    BTS Conservation Policy

    Since its inception the British Tarantula Society has been at the forefront of theraphosid spider conservation, both in- and ex-situ. Back in the early days of tarantula keeping (pre-B.T.S.) trade in theraphosid spiders was primarily of wild caught specimens (often exported in unsustainable quantities), since successful captive breeding was still in its infancy. The B.T.S. lead the way by publishing captive breeding techniques gleaned through the efforts of its global membership. Captive bree...
