    Unless they are mature specimens, tarantulas shouldn't be bought in breeding pairs. If immature, the male will almost always outpace the female, and that makes breeding them impossible as she won't mature in time.

    It's recommended to start with an older female, and then either buy a mature male once she matures, or raise one yourself.

    Many species are easy to breed, but some of these will produce an insane amount of offspring. So take everything into account before you decide to breed them. It helps for it be a sought out species as well, since you will need to sell off the slings.

    Have you owned Ts before? This is also the wrong forum to ask for Ts. Check the classifieds sections.
