Thanks I like the coloration alot , unfortunatley he'll turn brown when he
matures. The fangie things are the chelicera in both of these shots they
are covered by the pedipalps, wich are appendages used for feeling
around, grasping prey and in mature males storing sperm. These are
what your seeing in the picture :)

Do you keep the hissing cockroach as a pet? Or do you breed them to feed to the spiders?

Sometimes my eyes will get itchy when caring for one of them who likes to kick hairs, but thats about it.
