    Put together the tiniest little habitat for this guy, I hear even as slings they are fun to watch rearrange things and do their things. Hard to see him, but he immediately took to his little hide.

    So, I'm curious, how long might it take for this guy to get to 2 or 3 inches? Right now he is 1 inch.

  4. I have a 3 inch female, I was told she's about 7 years old when I got her at 2.5". Great spider, but jeez she grows at the slowest rate.
