Just got this sling and wanted to show you all...Xenesthis Immanis. It's about a 1 inch sling right now. This species has quite large slings, they actually hatch at this size. The picture is nothing spectacular, but these transform into one of the most stunning tarantulas out there. They like it moderately humid and warm (75F to 85F). They can double in size with each of their first few molts. You can see the hide behind it. They do burrow, so I have it in a Kritter Keeper with cocofiber as the substrate. Enjoy!

They are supposed to be serious hair kickers. Almost all the sling pictures I've seen have bald abdomens. It is fast moving...I'm having a hard time not dropping a roach in there today...they are supposed to be ferocious eaters. I can hold off till breakfast...hopefully Twisted Evil

Congratulations on the new arrival

I have a 17cm LS female. She does not flick hair but raises her butt and struts around the enclosure when she is angry.

Here she is taking her first prey item after the last moult

She is huge! I can't wait for those colors. The carapace is so amazing! How moist do you keep the enclosure? I've just been pouring about a cup or so of water on the substrate every couple of days. Mine stays right next to the damp moss. Does your female tolerate dry substrate at times? I just worry about mold and wonder if I can let the sub dry out between soaks.

Here is a better pic of my subadult female

I mist her enclosure thoroughly about once a week in summer and dunk a lot of water in one spot to soak the substrate properly.

In winter maybe once every 2 weeks with warm water so the temp in the viv does not drop suddenly

dont let it dry completely but dont worry too much if it dries as long as you are feeding it hydrated food

Good to know! Even the black on the legs is like velvet. I have a water dish with a stone in it. I'll be careful in the winter...it's spring here, so hoping to get a couple inches on her by winter. She climbs all over...hasn't tried bumping the lid yet, so I still like this one Laughing

Not yet...lol...I've really let her be. I did take the hide out and gave her moss to snuggle around in. Better visibility of feedings and peace of mind. She's all legs now...their defensive pose is pretty entertaining.
