PostSubject: C. Fasciatum Rehousing   Sun 19 Jul 2009, 5:57 am

Well once again it has come time to rehouse my C. fasciatum sling. This is the same sling from my 1st rehousing, that I posted about on the other forums. This is also the same sling that I got from Franklin with my first order from him. The package arrived late, forget how late, but everyone in the shipment was fine EXCEPT for this sling, it was almost in full death curl, only one or two legs sticking out. It moved one leg and I knew it was alive. I put it into ICU and a few hours later is vanished from on top of the paper towels, I looked under them and there it was. I haven't had a problem with it at all, and it's FEMALE to boot!

I wanted to rehouse this sling before it's last molt, but I didn't get to it in time, and it molted, surprised it was able to molt in it's tiny vial, it grew quite a bit this time, and after it hardened, and had a meal, it was time to move out onto bigger and better things. This was actually the easiest transfer I've done yet. It spent it's time mostly at the top of it's burrow in the vial, and that's where it was when I went to rehouse it, it was facing down the burrow, and I just took my tweezers and taped its side and it turned around, and another tap and it's in the new home.


But enough yacking, on with the pictures.

































Here you can see the burrow I started for her, but she hasn't taken to it yet, she has actually started two others of her own.

Next up is my A. genic sling, who badly needs a new home, and my P. irminia, only a 2" sling, but already has an attitude. I'm not looking forward to that one Neutral

Nice! It's gonna makea neat burrow with all that substrate. I just picked up two of these species. So cool in person. Pictures don't do them justice. What size do these mature again? I know they are a small species.

I think they mature at 4-5" My female is 5"+ she only has a few more days to harden up, then I can start to feed her again. Her man has ben waiting.
