    Default New critters in time for Halloween

    Since Halloween is just right around the corner, figured I'd show my new critters to those who are in that frame of mind. LOL


    Keep in mind I did say Halloween & critters......



    meet Ozzie & Harriet


    lil' Fuzzy [haven't decided if that's the name I'll keep -- not knowing if its a male or female is holding me up] Avicularia versicolor


    Haven't thought up names for these 2 yet -- unsexed emps

    I am unsure of how long any of those critters would last in our house! Are those hissing roaches?

    well..... I guess somebody's gotta love 'em....
    What are Ozzie & Harriet? They look like those prehistoric creatures caught in amber.


    Might be mistaken for take-out to Peanut, better watch closely

    LOL! Why yes, aaron, they are indeed Madagascar hissing roaches. Aaah the students I terrorized when I brought them in to school.

    A charming menagerie. What is the common name of the tarantula?

    I used to have a female Chilean rosy. My daughter and I also raised large numbers of hissing roaches as food items for my various critters and sold them to others for their critters.

    Is that like a little tiny baby tarantula? I mean, is that your finger in the background? As for the scorpions, well, I've had a couple bad experiences in the wild with them, so they would get stomped at my house.

    And the roaches... well EEWWWWWWWEE!!!

    I remember letting a Madagascar hissing cockroach crawl up my arm in college. That was, of course, before I'd spent 10 years living in Manhattan! Those guys are 4-6" long!

    Yikes the only way a roach is crawling down my arm is if it was on the way to the garbage disposal, Gives me the willies just thinking about it. Other than that you have an nice family Pavel.

    I was just about to say how cool it was that you have an antilles pinktoe and i got to answer a question in the process. groovy. awesome little guys, pavel.

    KC - i used to have a chilean rose too, got to about 6" or so legspan, beautiful girl. i was living in flordia at the time so the abundant anoles were a real treat for her.

    Wow... That's a pretty random collection of creatures!

    We don't really get much interesting down in NZ, I think we only have 1 poisonous spider.
