Juvenile New River Rust Rump (Aphonopelma sp. ‘New River’)
IHS purchases and enclosure transfers! Been a long time since I made a real update so it is a bit of a big one.
I purchased a Sub-Adult Avicularia sp. ‘Kwitara’ (Giant Green Pink Toe), Grown on sling Poecilotheria subfusca ‘Highland’ (Ivory Ornamental) and juvenile Aphonopelma sp. ‘New River’ (New River Rust Rump). Been after the latter two for ages and the Kwitara was too pretty to pass up, especially as my tall nano exo-terra has been empty since forever.
I also took the opportunity to transfer Bloo (GBB) and Anansi (A. geniculata) to bigger enclosures since my Leopard Gecko is in its new 30x15x15” viv freeing up the 12x12x12” Exo for Bloo.
I used to be horrifically arachnophobic up until I started keeping tarantula. What happened was I ended up onthe strange part of youtube watching Rob C videos. I ended up educating myself to these animals and started to overcome my blind fear of them.
I purchased my first tarantula to help with this. One tarantula became two, then four up to the 30 or so I have now. Now I have a hobby I love which suits now my very busy work schedule.
