    Is it normal for a GBB 1cm sling to kick urticating hairs?

    Perfectly normal :) GBBs aren't very docile compared to the average B smithi or G pulchra, they're quite nervous and skittish. Mine wasn't handlable at all but his spunk helped him out when it came to mating (from what I've heard from the person I recently sold him to).

    It has never done it before. I have an LP that rarely kicks hairs either.

    I've had ones that kick hairs as soon as look at them and others won't even bother kicking hairs
  5. Do 1cm slings have hair to kick?

    100% normal! GBB are a skittish/nervous species, and most will flick bristles without hesitation! Yet some can be quite tolerable..
    in my experience, my specimen will inch away a coupe times then if still bothered with flick/kick
