    These two pings were both kind enough to flower

    P. 'Aphrodite'


    P. gigantea


    The mainenance worker having lunch


    And while I'm at it, my A. avicularia molted today in his water dish.

    I think its a male. The molt was shredded, so I'll just have to watch for an ventral picture opportunity.

    Is the "maintenance worker" a D. rotundifolia?
    If it is, is it the regular form or "evergrow".

    Maintenance worker is the snail feeding on the fruit fly I fed to a D. x watari. I actually have a nicer specimen of the watari; I'll see if I can get pic of that.

    And though it means straying farther from the subject of Pinguicula...

    Avicularia avicularia


    and D. x watari

    It's a shame it shredded its skin, unless mature that is the only way to tell which sex it is. If it matures it will be very obvious if it is a male it will have hooks on the front legs and boxing gloves on its palps. Have you seen these ones jump!!! I tried catching one that was on the side of the tank to clean it out and it leapt clean across my hand to get away.

    Heres a link to a selection of pictures I took when my salmon pink bird eater moulted last time.
