Ok guys,

here are the only good pictures worthy enough to show.

First off, the C. darlingi



As you can see, I attempted to feed it a dead cricket think it may not be ready for a live one. We don't have pinheads here and I'd rather not leave a large adult cricket in there in case it decides to "turn the tables". Unfortunately, it completely ignored it. So I mustered all my courage to open up the container and remove it. Having witnessed how fast it be, no doubt it would escape in seconds if I give it the opportunity.

Now, the C. fasciatum



This guy is small, but he went for the cricket abdomen I left in its enclosure almost immediately. Seems to still be feasting off of it. So that's a really good sign.

Last up is my L. parahybana



Like the C. fasciatum, it readily took the cricket part I left for it, this one being a good-sized drumstick. I'm also quite hopeful with this one.

And now for some extras.



My larget B. boehmei sling seems to be in premolt now.... has ignored the cricket I had offered it.

And here's a sweet surprise.... Fluffy, my G. rosea caught in the act of eating a few crickets !!



Honestly didn't expect her to eat since she's always been on and off with feeding. Roseas really like messing with their keepers Very Happy

Ok, so let's go at em in order I got em.

First off, my beloved adult female G. rosea Fluffy. There she is just looking adorable as usual.



Not too surprisingly, her eating is already starting to slow down. Last week she only bothered to eat 2 of the 3 crickets I offered her. One died in the cage.

Next up is my juvi (?) B. boehmei Fireball. I got a ventral shot. It's not quite clear, but I'm hoping female.



Now for my recently acquired slings. It's been two weeks now since I got them and they seem to be doing quite well. Can't wait to see molts at any case.

First up is my 1" C. darlingi named Darla. Yes I know, not very original but it works. Last week I offered a second small cricket and witnessed it grabbing it and killing it in its burrow. The cricket struggled for a good 10 seconds but it quickly stopped moving. It was amazing to watch !

Here we see its legs sticking out of the burrow entrance.



And here is a blurry shot of the burrow it made. It has been busy, made quite a bit of webbing and digging.



Next the 1/4" C. fasciatum named Pinky. I see a fairly large abdomen and a dark one at that. It will hopefully molt in the weeks to come.



Last but not least, my 1/4" L. parahybana named Dora. Like Pinky, its abdomen has got fairly fat and has gotten darker. Has to molt soon.



So that's it with the pictures for the time being.

Now for some advice. I've begun to use mealworms to feed the 1/4" slings. Both seem to relish it. I basically cut the mealworm in half so no part gets wasted. I've removed the parts after 24 hours. Could I have left it a few days more ? I'd really like to avoid mold problems as much as possible.

I plan to feed them again over the weekend. I'd rather not "power-feed" them since if they turn out to be males I'd rather enjoy them as long as possible.

Thanks everyone !
