I love scorpions, I love pokies as well. there is nothing the beats the feeling of looking down upon something so beautiful.

But for the first time in 10 years in the hobby I can only say I was awestruck. Words simply cannot describe what it is like to open a box and cast your eyes upon one of the most beautiful tarantula's I have ever seen.

The female, sub adult. me and Roy went halves on this lady to make sure his male didn't go to waste.

I know but I will be keeping an eye on her as she gains confidence in the tank.

Then when she is spread out on the glass I will get a picture Razz

Yup they are a pain to even drop a sac! but nothing ventured nothing gained.

Roy tried to loan his male out for a 50/50 on the slings. sadly with these tarantula's reaching stupid prices at the moment people are getting greedy and would rather buy the male than split an egg sac. It's a sad day when greed comes before the love of the hobby Sad

So we joined forces and bought the female between us, to stick two fingers up at those greedy people who would not share a sac and at least try and put the male to good use. even if we dont get a sac, at least we tried.
