 Pink toed pics please!

I am going to get 3 pink toed tarantulas soon, now they are not my first spiders. I had rose hairs in the past just hadn’t had a spider in over a year and I do miss having one. I was wondering if you can post pics up of y’all pink toes and their en closer please.

I was wondering would it be best if I set up the 20 long where it stands up high or have it flat on the ground? and I had always used wood shavings, but wanted to know if it is not good to use it? I will also try to get pics up soon.

If you turn it on it’s side you’d need to tape something up across the bottom so the substrate wouldn’t fall out of the lid, but that’s probably your best bet. I use potting soil (without added plant food, nitrogen, etc.) for my tarantulas because I feel like it’s the closest to what would be natural, but that’s just me. I wouldn’t use wood shavings myself, and most people use peat moss, eco earth, coco husk, or something similar. Wood shavings would have a stronger smell, and probably be harder for your T to walk in.

Here are some pictures of the avics I’ve had:

A. avicularia



A. versicolor (young)



A. versicolor (older)

I got a Bolivian white knee. He/she is missing some hair on his/her rump is this a problem that will go away or do I have to do something to help it heal?

Bald spots happen when the tarantula rubs or flicks its hair off. You can’t make it grow back, but you can try not to startle or upset it, so that it won’t flick any more. They also sometimes add hairs to their bed of web before they molt. The next time it molts the bald spot will be gone.

Yes. I don’t handle all tarantula species, as some are really quite unfriendly (like my Cobalt blue!), but my Pink toes have been perfectly lovely tarantulas to handle.

You have a Cobalt blue?? Those are beautiful! Id love to see it :D

I have not owned a tarantula before but I am considering an avic. even though Rose hairs are supposed to be the best beginner spider.
Do you think, if I make sure to care for it properly ofcourse, that would be a good species to get? They are fairly easy to care for right? I just want to have a pretty vivarium and I think a pink toe would do better since they are arboreal.

I did, but I had to rehome her when I moved. It was sad. I posted pictures of her in a different thread here, though. Link :)

I think Avics are great beginner tarantulas! Mine were very docile, and as long as you keep the tank misted/humidity up they’re no trouble keeping.

Cobalt Blue; first Tarantula I had ever seen. I LOVE THEM. It didn’t help that my favorite color is Cobalt Blue, either...

I love OJ Bab’s too, but gosh, they’re mean. I know someone who has one, and if you get to close to the side of the tank... Ping ping, it’s going to town trying to eat you.

A.sp peru purple Female 5.75"



While not a "pink toe" another loving aboreal. P.cambridgei female this is an older photo she is almost 7" now



And a terrestrial. P.parahybana I used to have, 7" female.



Oh...speaking of H.lividum(cobalt blue), this is what can happen when trying to take them out to package them for shipment. This is after taking the 10" forceps out of my hand.



Not all OW baboons are mean, I have a pic on facebook of me holding my H.mac. Not the most advised thing to do but I did anyway. Also handled a 6.75" P.pederseni.
