    We welcomed little Nikita into our home this afternoon. She is a 2" female B. smithi. I'm so excited as are my kids, and my wife is even OK with it and actually admiring her.

    Beautiful smithi! Welcome to the hobby! I have some G. pulchripes (chaco) slings from the same egg sac as yours :) They are all doing very well, eating like champs. I'm sure you will be happy with them!!

    I'll give the OP at MAXIMUM 2 weeks before he will decide to get more :D:D:D

    Correct. Actually, I placed an order for 2 G pulchripes before I picked this one up at the LPS, so come Tuesday I will already be up to 3. Lol.

    Guess I won then. Don't worry. Any limit you set yourself, will easily be overwritten when you see a nice specimen :)

    I am at 12 now...within a month, lol. And more are being considered and looked for...enjoy the hobby, it's great! And something out of the ordinary, too. :)

    Gosh do I know this story, right now I have T FEVER man, and there's no antidote. I purchased an avic avic a month ago and I'm expecting a b smithi and a g pulchripes.

    The crickets I've been feeding are a little bigger than pinheads, and the slings have no trouble taking them down. I work for a (large chain) pet store and I simply pick out the smaller specimens from our "small cricket" bin.

    Good choices, though! Have those too, except my Avic is a metallica :) I really love all of them.

    How old do you suppose a 2" Female B. smithi would be?

    Here's a picture, I'd be intersted to know how old she is, I've heard they are slow growers.

  20. Really pretty :D I had the same thing happen a couple months ago. I had 3 tarantulas and I wasn't allowed to have any more. I go into the store with my mom to get a plant and come home with a baby smithi! My mom talked me into it LOL
