  • Some SW American Tarantulas

    These were found at the recent American Tarantula Society conference in Arizona and along my drive home to Utah:
    Most of these should be individual specimens though a couple may be the same spider. There were so many of them down there. It seems every turn there was a burrow in some areas.

    My wife's first attempt at teasing out a spider. Looks like it worked!
    *edit* Handling image removed as per rule 10 in the rules and regulations for posting images on the forum.

    How many have found wld Ts this tiny?

    This male was drumming at the base of a tree. He eventually cleared out some brush and exposed a female's burrow. I have video of them mating and I'll post that once it is edited.

    Hey Joey,

    how cool to have them "on your doorstep". And they are looking great as well. Fantastic

      Any ideas on the species ?

        Mostly Aphonopelma chalcodes. One may be A. paloma, but not sure on that yet.
