Advert. (polecamy) - w gospodarstwie rolnym | Brachypelma emilia (Mexican Painted Redleg) Handling.
i dont understand how your emelia is so calm....my emelia freaks out if i just lift the lid to her enclosure open. i dont handle my Ts but why is mine so flighty??
@filbizonline different species, and this is why I try not using the common name. The fireleg is the B.boehmei and the painted is the B.emilia
Viel zu Dick !
Did you do this right after the transfer video? Because I just watched the transfer video and noticed that you still had her old enclosure out.
Damn! I do really want to have an B. Emilia but its just too expensive on tarantulacanada at the moment :( anyway what gorgeous brachy!
You are making me want an emilia lol ! But I cannot, there are no "vacancy" spots in my "spider closet". I came close to choosing an emilia when I was shopping for my 2nd T. But TC then got an additional B. smithi comfirmed female on their pricelist. I think B. emilia looks quite smiliar to B. boehmei as far as coloration/pattern goes, so the B. smithi provides visual variety. Too bad both my B. boehmei and B. smithi have occasional fits of defensiveness, but what can you do ? :p Love'em !!
Diamond, they are ridiculously easy to raise as with the other brachys LOL. As you may recall a vid from 3 years ago, I've gotten a pair of B.auratum 1/2 inch (same genus as this emilia) and they are both now a 2.5'' sexed male and female. Very easy to care I'm not from the US so the prices will vary than those from Canada...but kenthebugguy has several in stock. They range from $60 as a 1.25'' sling to as much as $150 for a 2'' female (which is what I paid for this girl back in 2010)
She is so gorgeous. I am thinking about getting one. Do you know any good breeders?
What a Beauty!!! Love the triangle mask on the eyes! :)
@Jon3800 Believe me, I would want one, but parents have the last say in this case. They are arachnophobic, so two spiders was the most I'd be allowed to keep. Better having these two than none at all. I realize I've kinda messed up regarding the B. boehmei and B. emilia. What I mean was that both have much more color to them than a smithi. The spider closet only has two large shelves to place the cages, so one per shelf was the max allotment. I'll make a video about it over the weekend.
@ultum4tegunz You should get an albiceps
@PF718 Close....it indicates the instar or how many molts it's gone through. Example a T labelled L7 simply means 7th instar or has reached its 7th molt
You have some of the best T vid's on Youtube bar none. Keep it up. GREAT collection also.
there we go :)
my b. emilia is now burrowing. :) now she's acting like a terrestrial T. unlike before she's thinking that she's arboreal, always on the wall of the enclosure. lol :p
@TheBlobboy13 Yup, right after the transfer.
I have a question. When I see some T videos some times in the description they put L7 or L10 or L12, etc. What are these? I'm guessing : Lenght 7, 10, 12, inches etc. Thanks. Nice T by the way!
Kris, Individual specimens will vary but Ts are unpredictable to be tamed or get used to handling if you do this too often. I tested that theory out with my G.pulchripes and she became too defensive for me to touch. Its entirely up to you as long as you know your specimen well and you pay close attention to defensive behavior aka skittishness, hair flicking, threat postures.
Hey, John. Just wondering, how easy is it to raise one of these guys from a sling and how much would they usually go for in the U.S.?
jon do you think you could do a shoutout to my channel
Thanks so much, Jon. You're actually the one who has gotten me interested in T raising. However, this is a bit out of my price range at the moment. Could you recommend something for between 20 to 40 dollars for a beginner? I checked out your beginner recommendation video, but I can't recall any prices.
@TheBlobboy13 kenthebugguy, swiftsinverts, jamiestarantulas, and net-bug(dot) net would be good places to look for
hey i have a chilean rose, when i put my cricket in she walks past it and dosn't eat it she hasn't ate in a week now, she normally eats every 2 days is there a reason for this, you would really help me out !
@Jon3800 Thank you for your reply!
This triangle is cool, almost as cool as the angry looking eyebrow coloring some of the poecis and baboons have.
give her a couple of days.
one of the most best brachys ever i want one now
@thehat222 shoot a vid on it. Could be A.sp geroldi
the substrate that i'm using is coco peat and its not that wet. its a bit dry. i think its much drier than the substrate on your vid. :(
Jon, if I handle my albo. more often, will she used to it? So I mean... you know
@filbizonline with Tarantulas are sold by their common names like that...it's very hard to pinpoint to what you actually own. A fireleg would be the B.boehmei. slightly larger than this one, but a little bit more defensive
Brachys should have colors already at that size
I might be getting a 2 1/2 inch unsexed B.emilia sometime soon;)
@sevenpointsixtwox54 Ya I love that triangle
@ZTTFanatic Actually the colors and patterns on the emilia and boehmei are not even similar at all. A boehmei has the red covering the whole legs (emilia has one patch of red). Also carapace are very different too. Boehmei generally have an all tan carapace where the emilia has the characteristic "black triangle". You should have some room...it's one of the small brachys. That female is close to being full grown
Is there enough ventilation? Its possible that it might be a bit wet for her or she's not liking the substrate your using. Let it completely dry out and she'll return to her normal self
yes, im using the same KK as yours.
@TheLThompson123 Well 1) You have to understand (if you go through the big video I did on rose hairs), they DO go on feeding fasts (i.e stop eating completely) which can last for months...Absolutely normal for G.rosea! 2) The fact that you're feeding her every 2 days, she's probably just not hungry. You don't need to feed Ts this often. Once a week (or once every 2 weeks from my feeding vids is more than enough). Ts have very slow metabolisms so they don't need to be fed that often
@Jon3800 I will once I find one for sale at a decent price , havent seen any for sale ..except one off Swiftsinverts but a 2" is $85 dollars... Id rather get some P Miranda off rob C. right now til I see a better deal on Albiceps... trust me ima go on a brachy buying spree again sometime my mex firelegs are males... B Smithi suspect males.. but no proof / via molt.
you will not be disappointed. A great addition to anyone's collection :)
Hey Jon i hate to bug you i bet alot of people bug you but my GF's brother is giving away one of his T's and im getting it in about 4 weeks anyways she says it is 2 inches and black abdomen and black carapace red legs but just from the hip or knee down to about the ankle sounds like either boehmei a LITTLE or emilia alot but there is no traingle is it possible it doesnt have adult colors yet??
@thenebelwerk really that's strange?
Another great video! Thanks for sharing. Im sooo ready to get my first Ts at the end of the month :)
Proves Big Ts arent always the coolest ! B Emilia is a little Beast . Ill get one someday.. MEx. Firelg still my favorite brachy.
I wouldn't worry too much. As you probably got her a couple of days ago, shes probably exploring the enclosure. Is there enough ventilation?
Hey, thanks again, Jon.
