Tarantula Attack!

Well, that’s a little misleading. Yes, my salmon pink bird eater kicks hairs like crazy, but he didn’t get me directly. There was a cleaning incident.

Salmon Pink Birdeater [014] June 2014 Update

She’s molted at least once since my last post in March. =/
I have no dates, or measurements. Maybe I will remember get the tape measure out and post, but probably not. She’s sitting on an Aquafina bottle cap, if that helps. Her salmon-y colored hairs are showing now.

Salmon Pink Birdeater [014] March2014 Update

Molted today and WOW did she ever grow! Details of molt and measurements will be updated here later this week. She decided to do this last minute.

Acquired: Salmon Pink Birdeater [014]

I brought home my Lasiodora parahybana on January 7, 2014. Based on the size of her abdomen, how long she’d been at the store, and the presence of a molt, I estimate her last molt was close to Chrismas. She’s 0.7 inches, still colorless (beige) with a black hair-spot on her abdomen, and is quite skittish.

Molt (1): 2/1/2014 @ 35 days from acquisition, or 25 days from last estimated molt.
0.75- 0.8 inches

Colored up this molt, a much darker charcoal. Her size does not seem to have increased as dramatically as in other species I keep. She remains very active at disturbances.
