    First T

    I received this beauty last Wednesday and let it wait to settle in to take pics. A. versicolor; my first T, and probably my only one while til I move out. 3/4"

    So far she has eaten one cricket small size, about as big as her, on the day she arrived and I put another one in her enclosure today. I will probably update every molt or so.

    Forgot to mention, it's name is Azul.

    Very pretty, didn't realize babies were that fuzzy. I love the name.

    Lovely sling. Bit of a pity that they don't keep this coloration throughout their lives. Though versis are colorful as adults, the bright blue of the slings is very appealing.

    Glad you guys approve. I am having a hard time feeding her. She ate a cricket some 4 days ago but she doesn't seem very interested in food. I left a live cricket in her enclosure for ~12 hours then killed it because I thought it was too big. So far I have lost sight of the cricket, probably got burried under some moss or something. Any recommendations are feeding? I think next time I'm going to look for something smaller to feed her, like FFF or roach nymphs. Maybe she's in pre-molt?

    I really love her. She can be really funny at times, like she'll do laps around her cage and then take a "nap". Handling her is another story..

    She should be eating pinhead crickets at this time. Rule of thumb is that you want to feed her food that is half the size of her body length.
    And at this size, her enclosure should be a small critter keeper. And bigger and she may never know her food is there.

    Her enclosure is basicly a small Death Cube from Lowes. It came with her on the package, kit and everything. I figure that she probably is in premolt, seeing on the breeder's blog that they all hit 2i March 25th and I read that they molt every month or so when they are this small.
