Freshly moulted Holconia insignis, Australian Huntsman spider, one of my favorite true spiders, the coolness and size of a huntsman but still docile and easily handled.
I’m so jealous, this one is so pretty! Look at those eyes!!
G. Pulchra, Brazilian Black tarantula preservation that I finished about a year ago. This particular specimen was my own pet that passed away.
If you have questions about having your own invertebrates properly preserved upon their passing, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help you.

I think my Sweetie Pie is passing away…she’s been kind of going in and out of a death curl (when tarantulas die, their legs curl up underneath them as you can see in the photo) so I’m not sure. I know she’s an old girl just by evidence of her massive size. Don’t think we will be seeing any babies now either…I’m sad. This has been a sad week. Sadness.
Got a nice closeup within this photo I took of these fuzzy little creatures.
