Tuesday 31st March

UPDATE: I cannot believe that it is only one week since I posted out any bugs, it seems like several weeks ago! Everything is changing daily and none of us really know what's coming next. I am hoping that I will be able to resume sending out orders after the Easter break. I will of course update you further with any news. Stay safe everyone x


Tuesday 24th March: I would just like to say a big thank you to my lovely and loyal customers. I really appreciate you all, now more than ever! I have decided that I cannot carry on posting orders for the time being, quite frankly I can’t take the stress. Royal Mail cannot guarantee to deliver by 1pm the following day and I really don’t want my creatures held up in the mail and the added worry that it would cause my customers and myself. I will of course still be looking after all the animals but I also have people who rely on me for their care and I need to prioritise at this scary time. I am happy for people to collect from me (I will pack the animals and have them ready for contactless collection / no minimum spend). You can ring through your order and pay cash.

 

I will review the situation every few days but I cannot see anything improving anytime soon. You are welcome to phone me for a chat, I will be updating my Facebook page and writing a new blog entry shortly but for now please take care of yourselves, stay safe and sane. Thankfully my husband has a secure job but I know only too well that those who are self-employed or have been laid off due to the virus will be suffering, along with those people who are elderly and isolated. Perhaps I can do some videoing in the bug room and set up my mini scenes with the bugs to cheer things up just a little.


I have written and uploaded a new blog entry for my website today (for those who are interested :)

  • Nhandu coloratovillosus - White Striped Birdeating Tarantula

Common Name: White Striped Birdeater
Scientific Name: Nhandu coloratovillosus

Status : Captive Bred

Country of origin - Brazil, Paraguay
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Very pretty but can be a little skittish

My Opinion:
A large, stocky tarantula, most attractive and easy to keep but can be rather defensive, readily kicks off urticating hairs and can be aggressive when threatened.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

I am happy to send a photo of any medium or large size spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
