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.
