    Very smoothly :yawn: it was only .5" so not difficult. And it ate a pinhead roach so it is settling in nicely. :D

    My sons bday is coming up. He also is the one who got us into Ts. He will be 7, he wants a few different Ts ( I do too), and he wants a scorpion. One on his list Obt (wont be in his room) which I received today along with his Heterometrus Petersii.
    Ah yes the rehousing. I was prepared, tub/enclosure on my desk. I popped the lid, slid the container of the 1.5 obt into the enclosure. Using tweezers, I pulled the paper towels out, removed the dram. I carefully enrolled the paper towels, basked in the glory of a new T, gently scooted the obt off the paper towels. I begin to lift the tissue out, poooof, magically it shoots out of the enclosure and over the walls of the tub (God damn olympian)straight under my desk..... I cant remember if I squealed.
    I then have to poke around, move some wires, and it comes hurtling out at me like this is a robbery. So I quickly put my foot on him to hold his John McClane like moves in check, as I liberate the catch cup and safely return Mr McClane to his enclosure.
    The scorpion was boring.

    I got 3 tarantula slings about a month ago, a c. cyaneopubescens, g. pulchra, & a a. geniculata. Each one is about 1/2”. The GBB is a little bigger, maybe closer to 3/4'. They’ve been so easy (so far) to take care of & so much fun to check in on each day I decided to get another. So, last night I ordered a b. smithi. I haven’t kept tarantulas in years but my first one way back when I was 13 or 14 years old was a Mexican Red Knee. So, I have another 1/2” sling coming on Tuesday. I’m pretty excited. So, I’ve heard they’re pretty slow to grow. Does anyone have any info on how slow?

    Is it an actual smithi or harmorii?

    Actually, I ordered it from Jamie's Tarantula's & after re-checking what I ordered, it says "smithi/harmorii" so I assume it could be either or?

    Former B. smithi has been revised to now B. hamorii. Former B. annitha is now B. smithi.

    Common mistakes - all good. I advise you use scientific names as they do not confuse others which species you are referring to. For example: all the Brachypelma spp. with “red legs” is a huge headache when I see someone uses the term. Only a few species are somewhat OK being called their common bc of uniqueness. For example: Chaco is G. pulchripes and GBB is C. cyaneopubescens

    Yeah. And at $50 for a 1" specimen I feel is not a bad deal considering I See them online at 1/4" for $30.

    @MrButton I hope you manage to get at least one. I have two, a momma and her baby. I love them both, and the baby is so curious and finally taking down live prey on his own! No more pre killed for him!
