PostSubject: Got a new one!   9/3/2008, 9:31 pm

I went to a HUGE pet store about 45 minutes away from where I live and they had a few T's there, so I decided to pick up a G. Rosea. I know, it's probably the most common sp, but I couldn't resist and I didn't have $130 to shell out for a T. blondi. They had 3 of these girls, so I asked if I could see them all and pick which one I wanted, so I did. I got the copper-colored one. She was the biggest of the 3. Hopefully she doesn't turn out to be a psycho-rosie!!! She attacked the piece of cork board that was in front of her when I brought her home. I guess that's usual... Oh and I got her for $12.99. Hopefully that's a good price. I'm not too familiar with T pricing, as this is only my 2nd T.

Anyway, here she is:








What do you guys/gals think? Very Happy

I got mine for 10, but compared to other store (20 dollas) that's a good price.

Mine was copper at first but then it molted and turned ink and shiny!
Yay

Well they were selling smaller ones for $12.99, too Surprised

The curly hair that was there ( probably not even 2" ) was $40. I got the same size one for $20.

The T. blondi there was about 5" @ $130.

Grr... I wish I would've had some sunlight so I didn't have to use the flash. I hate using flash! It always drowns everything out in whiteness...

LOL Connie. I actually considered naming my first scorp fluffy or cuddles b/c it would shock people to see such an "ugly" (beautiful to me) creature with a cute name like that Razz

You don't have any T's??? omg! You gotta get one! They're too cool! Very Happy

I don't really name my animals. Only ones I named are my first scorp and T. First emp's name is Spike (even though I'm pretty sure it's a girl lol [4i]). I named my B. albopilosum "Dozer" primarily because she's always rearranging the substrate. It's funny whenever I rearrange her enclosure because all day she'll be coming out a mouthful of peat/coco Razz

I was too scared to hold my rosie since she pretty much attacked the cork board. Nope.. lol.

Does he actually cuddle with it? Razz

There was this big yellow anaconda at the pet store. I wanted to get it, but it wasn't for sale since they rescued it when it was little and they take it on road shows or w/e.

I've confirmed that it's an adult male.

Do they usually rear up and attack things that go near them? I was nudging his legs with a piece of bamboo and it started biting the hell out of it. I'm scared to hold the damn thing now!

Psycho-rosie? Surprised

@Eddy:

I'll let you know when I have a few bucks. I don't have a job, so money is scarce.

@Lisa:

Thanks. The psycho is indeed very fluffy! Razz
