Default Late Intro

Got a new spider last month. Sorry, was busy with Mr.Dumplings' memorial service so i forgot lol. It's a 5" female Brazilian black & white (Nhandu coloratovillosus) and no, she's not racist.

I named her Nancy after a local politician whose familial dynasty reigns from a certain city that coincidentally rhymes with the word 'itchy' in my native language, which also happens to be the best word to describe this tarantula.

Upon arrival, stressed & cranky (March 28, 2014)




Feeling her new territory




Slowly fattening up (April 16, 2014)



Their species like it dry but apparently she has an affinity with water hence the constant need to be clingy with her water dish.

She's beautiful! I have one of these (well an Acanthoscurria brocklehursti) and Brazilian Red and White ( Nhandu chromatus ). Both are around 2". Some of my favorites!!

What a gorgeous girl! Spiders are awesome. Can I ask you spider owners, do you guys handle them regularly (like how you would handle a hedgehog)? Or do they prefer to be left alone? I'm such a spider noob haha

Well like most reptiles and all arachnids, they would rather be left alone but I handle mine and so does my brother. I was just handling a yellow banded flat rock scorpion last weekend, he would much rather you just leave him alone. I also was handling Both the male and female pink toed tarantula to lol. They also would rather you leave them be.

On a side note I don't like little house spiders lol , but t tarantula is fare game hahaha don't ask how that works, cause I don't know

Sorry I didn't mean to jack your thread Tongue_Flicker
