C cyaneopubescens 1 1/2" sling eating a roach and a butt shot showing the spinnerets. Didn't touch saturation, color is as shot. Amazingly colored spiny little creature.

In the fang picture you can see the opening on the front side near the tip through which the venom is injected into the prey. The streaks on the image are webbing on the inside of the clear plastic enclosure through which I had to shoot since that little one stays in its burrow.

I have three Brachypelma albopilosum, Nicaraguan Curly Hair tarantulas, between 1/4" and 1/2" long. It was a Black Friday special, three for $50, I couldn't resist. One of my employees suggested Moe, Larry and Curly (Three Stooges) for names. All three burrowed into the substrate in their enclosures and are very skittish, dashing into their burrows at the slightest movement, leaving me a frustrated photographer. I leave their killed roaches near their burrow openings and they come up and eat during the night. One of them molted, I put the molt on top of a dime for scale, and you can just see the openings near the tips of the fangs of the molted exoskeleton. Fourth and fifth photos are of the newly molted one, the sixth is one of the others next to a pinhead B lateralis roach.
