  8. Ya you lost me with the bracelet and necklace comment.............:confused:
    I would think my obscure (not really) reference to guys lying about size would be easy to get, but I don't get what you are talking about.

    (Oh, and if his blondi is 11", does that mean I get to call you Santa?)

    My largest T's are a lasiodora parahybana female that is close to 9 inches and a Nhandu coloratovillosus female that is 7 inches. I have a very large sub adult male parahybana that currently measures 7 1/2 inches. I'm hoping he'll push 10 at his final molt, but it will probably be more like 9.

    Well I could give a flying hoosefudge about biggest legspan (because I doubt I have any record holders) but I may have a contender for longest fast with a G rosea who hasn't eaten since August of '07. Can we do that record?

    I agree with the 20" smithi thing. That is crazy about the Rosea! How does she look after fasting that long?
     
  16. I will add the names of the current record holders by their records. Pictures would be great (hint:D ). To Etown, I will add longest fast up there. I forgot all about longest fast and stuff like that. Just so you know, I was thinking about doing fastest and mostaggressive, but that would disturb the T, and there is no standardized way of measuring that.

    Every bit as plump and juicy as before. It's amazing, i guess it's premolt but the bald spot on her bum hasn't darkened past a medium chocolate brown in that amount of time either. She is SO scruffy.
