This has been many years in the making. We welcomed, quite possibly the first in the US, a 100% F2 Pyxis arachnoides oblonga in to our care. She is a tiny little gem.

Additionally, this is the first year we have hatched all three of the Pyxis arachnoides group, arachnoides, brygooi, and oblonga. Both the oblonga and brygooi are F2 animals.

Spectacular. A huge accomplishment indeed Tim. Fantastic work. Incredibly rare species and in my opinion the rarest of Pyxis.

Without a doubt, the rarest. They are impossible to find.
