    Beauts mate.. are you on AIF?

    I have kept all of those but currently only have about 8 tarantulas and 6 centipede babies that I bred. My favourites have to be praying mantids though, they are for sure the most interesting.

    I find scorps and Ts to be pretty darn boring, and centipedes too but insects are so much more active. I really want a tiger beetle, they are awesome!

    Cheers

    cheers everyone :)

    Kenshin : great pics and finds mate :D

    Sock Puppet : to say the truth, i never got it ID'd and have never seen or heard of anyone else have any, got some more pics below of it with a female ( female has a purple head )

    Megzz : they can bite me if they want too, but ive never gotten bitten/stung :), no australian scorpion or tarantula is venomous so thats good :)

    Shaye : they are pretty easy to breed

    Phil : i sure am on the AIF ;), and i recommend it to anyone who loves or likes bugs/inverts :) - Australian Invertebrate Forum - Forum

    thanks ...
    Nick

    Those spiders are sac spiders, not sure could be slender sac spiders.. and the mantids are boxer bark mantids, wouldnt call them rare just hard to find as there so small and well camouflaged i have found hundreds.. you just have to know where to look... i currently have around 60 tarantulas, a few pedes (blue leg and an earth pede which is a species that never usually comes out from underground and has no eyes and a soft body like a worm) a northern tree funnelweb-Hadronyche formidabalis (They are rarer then most and also ridiculously venomous, im pretty sure there the second most venomous spider in the world and up to eight times as venomous as a sydney funnelweb and also grow the size of a bird eater as there the largest funnel in the world according to the museum) a few trapdoors from around aus (mostly curtain webs as there my favourite) and about 30 scorpions or so.. used to have alot more but it gets hard looking after them all plus all my herps.

    I've seen a tree funnelweb in the wild - their nests are amazing, you'd never know what you were leaning against! Very beautiful spider.

    Nice spiders and scorps. I love the wolfies, even though they are common as dirt round here especially, can't help but be drawn to them :) Here's a pic of a recent visitor.
