Ballache of a spider. Bloody things drop dead like all the other Avics and worse, they run up your arm every time you open the top of the tub to feed/ squirt them.
They look pretty if you like colourful spiders, are pretty small and pretty easy to breed.
Usually pretty easy to find spiderlings and not too expencive.

but as pel said... SADS or better, PAHS is a good way to describe what seems to happen with Avics. i'm not going to get any, spids are supposed to be bad [buttocks] and not just randomly die. give me a Grammostola or a Flicky any day Very Happy

There is a probability that it will die for no reason yeah But they are pretty cool coloured and Are quite fast arboreals and it won't just stand there like a retarded Rosie. So you get the fun of it bolting up you and other places. I don't have one but have been looking into it and picking up info. I'd get a couple of slings so I can see them molt through different colours. Maybe even get a survivor that I'd call bear grylls. Ha.

how dare you insult chile rose GRRRR Razz
yes avics look nice, but they are as cyanide said, arboreal. you will have to be on the look out in their viv. half the time they will hide... i'd rather get something else..
and Bear Grylls is a good spider name mate Very Happy

Shining I'm not an expert on T's by far , just got into them really a little over a month ago but I got a couple Avic slings 1 Urticans and 1 versicolor and after the first week of doing everything my buddy told me to do the urticans dropped dead. The night before it was fine even crawling around my arm fine and even ate, so I can attest to them dropping dead unexpectedly. But for as cheap as they are for slings I went back and picked up 3 more and they're all fine actually molted twice since. My versicolor though I've had no probs with it's double the size when I got it and it has an awesome blue color to it. They really are beautiful T's and for as cheap as slings are I'd take the chance and pick up a couple if I were you. No matter what you get at a pet store their is always a chance it could die.

^ you can't think it's cheap so it doesn't matter if it dies. it's a life, which needs to be cherished. these are the sort of things which don't belong in the pet trade.

That's not what I meant when I said they are cheap. I do value them in fact I was sad when mine died as I am with all my animals, and I even keep it with all the other little guy's I've lost over the years (scorps). I was simply stating that if he gets one and try's hard to take care of it and it does die it isn't as bad as if he were to pay $100 for it as an adult and it dies a week later.
I do agree with you on the fact that it is a life and needs to be taken care of, my wife works at a vet hospital and everyday she comes home and tells me about some piece of S H I T that doesn't take care of their animals and it pisses me off. If you don't want to take care of it then you shouldn't get them so I agree with you and yes it does matter if it dies.

I bought one of these little guys about a month ago. Its 1.5 inches right now. It molted once right before I bought it (the molt was still in the web). Its a beautiful looking spider. But don't get too attached to the colouring. The adult versicolor looks like this:



Still pretty bad [buttocks].
When this one dies, I want to get one thats more docile, so I can handle it more often.
These little guys are quick, and frighten easily.

They are cool looking spiders.

I will definitely buy one of these over the coming months. More Murinus's and a H Maculata. Maybe another feather leg. Then an avic.

Pterinochilus murinus is the OBT. Orange Bitey Thing replaced Orange Baboon Tarantula. Also known as P terror, and Usambara orange baboon.

There are also a few different color forms of them, but orange is easiest to find. If you see a shop selling a Mombassa golden starburst, it'll be P. murinus, but the gold color form. There is also a dark form, and a traditional tan form as well I believe with regional variations/highlands/lowlands etc.

They are awesome. You will NOT be disappointed by them.

Seriously. Awesome spiders. They will adapt to any spider habits as well. They can be kept as arboreals, will dig burrows, or accept a hide. Each spider has it's preference. I've noted that they experiment a bit as they grow.
