    Just wondering, most I've heard communals need to be transferred to a whole new enclosure, when adding Ts that havent been party of the existing community. I Hope there wasn't any cannibalism! Love the dark den!

    how is adding a balfouri slings to an already established communal different then just putting any old random balfouri of any size together as long as both of them have been communally kept im not like trying to hate but im just really curious as to if this actually works or if its just very expensive food for the already established communal

  • Jakazure Nonon
    Jakazure NononMiesiąc temu

    uhmm is that a good idea???? like if the slings grow up and end up diff size as the bigger ones they stay friendly and not terretorial??? ive heard of diff sac mates and all that but ive never heard of adding slings to already grown juveniles or adults

    I thought your channel was safe to watch for my children that has an interest in invertibrates. Apparently you allow extensive mid-rol commercial that is not suitable for kids. I will now have to block your content from my childrens youtube. Seriously? You're all about money revenue? Very disrespectful and absolutely heartless to the children that seek out knowledge about those animals! As a father, it's not ok, we should instead spread knowledge and encourage curiosity about those animals, rather than make our children want to spend time and money on your merchandise. I thought I was keeping a a good track of what my children was watching on youtube, filters and all, but I was not aware of the extensive amount of ads on your channel. Now I'm aware.

    Petko big fan here! I've got an idea for the 2nd comunal enclosure... You could do some hardscape on the ceiling making it like is under the earth, with roots and pieces of soil dropping and then some central structure "connected" with the branch you have on top to keep the 360 view, to have some sort of continuity. Just an idea if fits the habit of those animals of course. I've always wanted to do something like that, it would be awesome 👌 Keep up with the good work, greetings from Italy

    The wireless microphone idea is top, I hope you get that webbed up thingy ^^°, I have to put a balfouri communal alltogether as well, but I´m pulling it far behind because I don´t want to. It´s a big adult female and two 3cm big females in a Braplast :P By the way the Hysterocrates cf. gigas communal will work way better than with N.incei. From my experience and knowledge the only communals that can and will work are actually some african birdspiders, You can even keep any Harpactirinae except Harpactira spp. and Harpactirella spp. from the cocoon till 3/4 moult alltogether, if done right! And last but not least our asian arboreal ornamental beauties Poecilotheria spp. (there´re some exceptions yes P.ornata and another)

    Balforis are so beautiful such lovely colouring. And i adore heavy webbing spiders. So with these Balfouri you have both. I really want to get some of these gorgeous t's. Your group look like theyre all happy living together which is really so nice to see. Its been wonderful seeing them growing over time since you got them. Funny enough one of the first videos i watched of yours was of this amazing communal . So happy that they seem to be doing so well. Best of luck with the little babies joing the gang. Lets hope this keeps going well for all of them for a long long time yet. Thanks for another great video. Chriss 🇬🇧

    He probably sells wholesale to tarantula shops. Most breeders do--having dozens or hundreds of slings to house and care for all of a sudden is hard on the workload.

    I literally just bought one of these yesterday! I've had my eye on it for the past week. I still have to pick it up though 😅 I also purchased Omothymus schioedtei, Brachypelma smithi, and Phormingochilus sp. akcaya along with it! I'm excited! My first tarantula which I acquired at the age of eleven died last year. I'm twenty-nine now. They look spectacular in a communal setting! Gimme one of those males! 😝 I have wanted to build a collection since I was a young child. Hopefully I will be able to make a new PLtoolss channel for feeding videos! 🤗

    Another awesome video Petco. 👌🏻 Quick question. The new planned communal. How do you plan to access it if it is under the current large enclosure? I remember you had stackable glass enclosures before but after some time you weren’t a fan of them. Just to add I can’t wait to see that massive and awesome rehouse. Their current enclosure is literally crawling with movement. 😆

    It was four rehousings, I think. You did one for the mold and ended up using that old enclosure for your new P. Metallica that got big enough last year. I think it was the ventillation holes and the background you replaced that gave it away. I've watched you rehouse them for times from the beginning to now when you moved them into the new Dark Den.
