    Well non of mine are full grown so I would say I want then to be bigger.

    Also.the second picture you provided reminds me of the movie eight legged freaks. That was such a bad movie...

    I think it's from the 1955 movie "The Tarantula" , basically about a tarantula that grows to a gargantuan size because of nuclear fallout.

    All I have are slings so far. I'm a new keeper and all of my tarantulas (3) are less than an inch. I'm fine as they are but it would be nice if they grew a little bit bigger XD.

    I don't even think my biggest tarantulas are fully grown yet but I'm happy with them as they are.

    The only thing I want is more tarantulas :woot::hilarious:

    When all I had was slings I wanted them to be bigger so badly, but then when they grew to adults I wanted the little slings back. That's why I don't overfeed them for increased growth anymore, slings are just too damn cute. Although my smallest T's are 2" LPs now, so I'll need my baby T fix soon.... Why is this hobby so damn addicting?

    6/8 of my slings are under an inch, so I'd like them to grow bigger, but judging by grape sized abdomens I can say they'll molt soon.

    Then there's my K. brunnipes sling. I think it's maybe 1/10th of an inch. It scares me. It's too little.

    You know, I think the smaller sizes would be okay if mine weren't always in a state of premolt half the time. I miss them when they disappear!

    I did strangely feel a mixture of excitement and a little sadness after my GBB molted. I initially bought her as I love the look of the adults, but I will miss her cool stripes and black-tipped toes. I have been considering getting a pumpkin patch or some other stripy species down the road.

    Size doesn't matter to me, i am extremely patient so waiting doesn't bother me at all.

    I want them to become bigger, stronger, faster, meaner, and above all else, develop the ability to fly across an entire barn space and attack a random guy plucking on one of the strings of their clearly Araneus diadematus influenced webs that are the same size as the barn.
