Advertisement My LP moulted a week or two ago and today while cleaning out his tank I saw he has matured out into a male. I always called him "he" because I hate saying "it" even if I don`t know their sex. I am actually really sad about this. I have had him since he could fit on my thumbnail. and he grew so fast! He has so much attitude. So.....yeah I am just really sad about this. My tarantulas are my pets so I get very attached to them.
