BATHTUB BEDLAM – rehousing the baby Pterinochilus murinus “KIGOMA” and COMP winner announcement

Description from http://www.thespidershop.co.uk

The colour of the this species varies depending on original locality. They vary from a beautiful bright orange colour to tan with a starburst pattern covering its body. It is very interesting in both its behaviour and habits. Not a beginners species but definitely one of those species you need to keep sooner or later. They do not require high humidity and can be kept on slightly moistened substrate with a water dish. They are best kept in a terrarium that is set up with both arboreal and terrestrial hides. If given enough substrate they may even dig a burrow. They are very heavy webber’s and will not only cover a dense layer of web over their retreat but also over the entire enclosure, establishing elaborate silken tunnels. Care needs to be given when moving them and maintaining the enclosure as they are very fast and will not hesitate to bite or escape.

REACTION to TARANTULA bite vid (Orange Baboon Tarantula)

So every now and then a video will keep popping up in my social media feeds and over the years become extremely difficult to ignore any longer. This is one of of them. A young chap apparently getting bitten by different species of tarantula for “research” purposes…. what a crock of shite!

This spider, Pterinochilus murinus, is a defensive “old world” Theraphosid spider found in central, eastern and southern Africa and is affectionately known as the OBT or Orange Bitey Thing.

“Tiny” The Worlds Biggest Tarantula Genus (Theraphosa) Making her EGGSAC! by predatororpreyonline

You’ve just watched our Goliath Birdeater Tarantula (Theraphosa stirmi) making her eggsac. It took over 28 hours of recording, speeded up x100 to make the last portion of this video.
It is a youtube first for this species and was totally nerve-wracking.
She was mated on May 1st 2018 so It’s now over 8 months.

Not another tarantula unboxing video…

So I’ve received a spider today for next year’s breeding projects…

You will need to wait until the end of the video to find out what it is…. its a good one. I promise.

Theraphosa stirmi (trying to get her to lay an eggsac)

It’s now been six months after pairing the monster in my collection – “The Burgundy Goliath” or Theraphosa stirmi.

I was expecting something to happen by now or at least some indication that she is gravid and preparing herself for eggsac production ie moving earth around or heavy webbing. So far, nothing. It’s time to take matters into my own hands and start making changes to her environment that may spur her on to drop.

In a very “off the cuff” episode from the YouTube channel, you can find out what I’ll be doing and how I’ll go about it.
