some lucien aww-ness  
prior to these pictures, lucien hadn't been on my hand for about a week, as she was preparing for and carrying out her moult. the first day of her emergence, she was rather shy and stayed in her cocoon for most of the day... until i took her jar in my hand to hold for awhile. i sometimes like to hold the kids' jars to get them used to movements.

the minute i carried lucien's jar, she came out walking right away. after a coupla turns around her little home, she sat down right where my finger pressed against her jar wall. as in, she literally sat by pressing herself down in a resting position as if she was in bed. said bed was, at that moment, directly opposite her in full sight. i was rather happy, and wondered if my efforts in domesticating her has really paid off. she took a nap indirectly on my finger like that, for a long while. i had time to take pictures of her and then wonder what do to next. she woke up from her little nap and walked off only when i moved my finger. :)


isn't my little darling looking more and more like her beautiful mother, lucy? that's lucy in my icon for this entry.

i was only going to post the two pics of her through the jar walls... but couldn't resist sneaking in one gorgeous picture to whet your appetites. as expected, i have loads of awesome pictures of her on my hand. but i shall try to post in some semblance of progression from their early infant days. there will be sneak peeks once in awhile when there are note-worthy bits i feel i have to say, like this one.

it's a love story, about a girl and a spider.....

a local paper wants to come shoot us next week. :D nothing confirmed at this point, but it might be a bit of fun!

do you reckon the lucien story will be stronger than the munster story? it's quite different raising a bub from egg stage to the little queen she is today... but munster will always be the fire-starter!

that's probably for you and your editor to work out together. i'm partial to munster though, because it has a more interesting beginning.

yeh they definitely want to focus on how it all started. i will probably babble like a runaway train and see how much of it they want to publish. :)

Have your spiders ever bit you?

nope. their fangs are curved inwards so it's not easy for spiders of this size to bite human skin. when these babies get to full size (lucy-size) they may be able to cause a little pinch. won't be any worse than a bee sting. and what's most important is, they won't even think about biting humans because they don't see us as food. we're moving mountains. only if you try to pin a spider down, then you might get bitten. :)
