Cyriocosmus Perezmilesi (Bolivian Dwarf), now about 2 months old. It has doubled in size & is getting some of its colours. Its standing beside a normal Grain of Brown Rice. To help show just how tiny it is.

Wow, I never would have guessed that was a grain of rice! So teeny, thanks for sharing!

& in about 1+ years it'll be 3" in leg span :eek:

It is far more fun watching these little guys grow up, then getting a young adult from a reptile shop... they are eay to feed too.. Just kill the cricket & drop it near the sling. It'll eat it while they are young.. when they are bigger they'll want live foods.

With the Cricket Virus killing most of the crickets in North America I'm trying to raise these 2 on meal worms.. So far the larger one (Red Rump) is eating the meal worm... hopefully he'll continue to feed on them, as I'm raising them, so I'll have massive supplies of the feeders... They don't make noise, don't escape, don't infest, & don't STINK like crickets do. Lilly is the only one I'm going to have issues feeding. I need to convince her that mealworms are food.

Wow! It certainly is very tiny. Its funny to say, but I think it is rather cute as well. :-)
I can't wait to see more and more pictures as she grows.

Wait until it matures. It'll have very bright orange tiger stripes on its butt & a heart shape too...

What an adult looks like

I don't believe this one is an adult as its orange is still dull.. but is shows a nicely formed heart shape on its butt :love:

I think the heart is to deceive us and make us think..aww.. how cute she loves me.. and them BAM get a bite.. lol...j/k

very nice...I´ve always been interested in them.. I fell in love with one as a kid.. black and yellow striped.. no clue on the name lol.. I even once trapped a wild one but my mom freaked and wasn´t able to sleep thinking it might crawl on her on her sleep..lol

You might be right about the BAM Bitten thing as they are not friendly at all *CHOMP* :eek:

The Red Rump (the other baby I have), is going to have really big fangs, as its going to be larger then Lilly :eek:

I have no idea what kind of Spider that would have been. Sounds pretty though! There is a Cobalt Blue Tarantula that I would LOVE to add to my collection. Its so pretty!!
There is more then 1 blue kind of Tarantula, so here is a sample pic of one.. Pretty eh?

I would also like to get a Baboon Tarantula at some point too

This is labeled as one of the several Birdeaters. I love the colours on the legs & its also on my to get list.. or a similar looking one

I'm not too sure of the cost, but it'll more then likely be almost $100 for a baby. So it'll be one of the last ones I get. I think the Baboon is also $$, but only 30~50$ as its a little more popular & common.

I know where a good Breeder is & I can meet them several times a year as they come to the same Reptile Expo I work at. Its the same breeder I got the babies from. I think thats why they are doing so well. They have experts caring for their folks :)
