  •   kir1990x Hey, when you liked my photo earlier I realised we haven't spoken for like a year! Hope all is good with you Matt :) 1d
  •   xebo @kir1990x Hey, has it been that long?! There's been ups and downs but things have improved. I've got my own flat and I'm volunteering at a local mini exotic zoo where I should be able to start an apprenticeship very soon. How's things with you? 1d
  •   kir1990x Yeah I think so, it's been freaking ages! Glad things have improved for you, that's cool you got a flat and sounds like you're gonna be doing your dream job soon huh? Still not a fan of the creepy crawlies myself haha but it sounds like an awesome job for you :) I'm recovering from surgery at the moment so just going a bit crazy not being able to move much but things are all good in general :) x 1d
  •   xebo @kir1990x Yeah if everything goes well I'll have a full time job there afterwards. There isn't many bugs, there are lots of different reptiles and snakes, birds, exotic mammals like kinkajou, genets, marmosets, raccoons and traditional farm animals as well as newer types like alpacas and llamas. What have Hope the surgery went well and you're back on your feet soon x 1d
  •   kir1990x Congrats, I'm really pleased that things are going well for you :) and that job sounds like my kind of thing if there aren't many bugs, kinkajou are cute little things! Thanks Matt :) x 1d
  •   xebo @kir1990x Casper the kinkajou is sweet, lovely feeling fur but not seen much of him since his mum & another female have been put in with him. Atooki the raccoon is awesome but I've not been in with him, just held his paw through the cage. He's huge too, as big as a dog. 1d
  •   kir1990x Aw that's lovely! Wish I had a job where I could stroke a kinkajou and hold a raccoons paw, you must have been so happy when you got that job :) 1d
  •   xebo @kir1990x I was quite apprehensive at first because I didn't really have a clue about most of the animals they have or even mucked out before, but I enjoyed it and I've learnt quite a bit in the few weeks I've been there. First job I've had where I don't feel ill with anxiety before going in. 1d

xebo Trying to sex my 1.5 to 2" versicolor sling. Did an examination of a moult a while ago under microscope and was leaning towards female. Now at this size using macro lens and I'm feeling more confident at female. 2mon
  •   xebo @andrea.arachnid I'd like a second opinion if possible please. 2mon
  •   andrea.arachnid I kind of think male. However, I'm no good at ventral sexing. It's not accurate. Your best bet it to wait for it molt. That's the only accurate way to tell. 2mon
  •   xebo The last moult was too delicate and I didn't have my dads microscope at hand. It only moulted last week and the abdomen still has some filling out to do. I'll try another macro in a couple of weeks and see if I can get it to stand still on something more transparent and less scratched so I can get a clearer photo. Failing that, I'll wait until the next moult and borrow dads microscope @andrea.arachnid 2mon

  •   lord_tentacles Great, lol. Now I want one. 1mon
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles do it 1mon
  •   vaultsurvivor I didn't know Versis would jump. Mine never has. Good to keep in mind! 2w
  •   xebo I imagine not all will but it's nice to know that they can just in case it happens when handling @vaultsurvivor 2w
  •   vaultsurvivor Xebo Yeah, if I didn't know that there was a possibility (like I thought) then I wouldn't be prepared and it could result in potential tragedy. Thanks for posting this! 2w
  •   xebo @vaultsurvivor no problem and thanks 2w

  •   lord_tentacles I need to find out more! What the species? 1mon
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles Avicularia versicolor 1mon
  •   lord_tentacles Thanks mate. I'll have a mooch about after work and read up on em! 1mon
  •   xebo @lord_tentacles You may read that there is a high sling mortality in Avic species, because they're arboreal and from the Caribbean people think that they need high humidity so keep the enclosures wet but that causes mold and mildew growth which causes harm. Good ventilation is the key, a container with lots of air holes on the lid and some around the sides just above the substrate level and lightly mist weekly until it's large enough to have a shallow water dish. 1mon
  •   hv.n.vh @crywan_k the only cute spider, if you get one of these I won't cry about it (also nice spider man sorry for imposing on your vid, she's beautiful) 4d
  •   xebo @hv.n.vh lol thanks 4d
  •   missjordonc @kittykelly82 look how cute this is!!! So fluffy!!! 14h

xebo I've slightly over-saturated this photo to bring out the developing colours. The carapace is turning more green and the abdomen has a little flash of red emerging blending into a slight purple and the urticating patch is definitely going green with a nice deep blue halo around it. She's also getting the iridescent multicoloured patches on the underside of the ends of the front legs and pedipalps. She's gonna be a beauty!
