    Currently 69 (would've been 70 but I had a DOA yesterday and the replacement won't be getting shipped out until January)

    If you speak to him then I'm sure he'd be willing to arrange collection instead of shipping if you live close by.

    Possibly gravid if the action from his recent photo upload was a success. That's just a happy bonus.

    Would be wise of the OP to actually learn more about Ts instead of collecting them like Skittles. People who are new, with a lot of slings, often end up with a lot of dead slings.

    Yeah because having 3 Ts is definetly a push. How do you expect anyone to learn without experience? Since you think youre god i suppose you could just bestow the experience i need? If youre just gawna have cheap digs take youre comments else where

    Hey now, that's not what they meant. I think they just meant the general idea is to not overload yourself, that's all.

    Why not say that then instead of bring snied about it?

    Well personally I've found a lot of very well-meaning comments/lots of well-meaning advice sounds kinda cold when it's just blank text. I doubt viper69 meant it that way. Basically it's just that you don't want to rush into getting many more than a small handful of spiders as a new keeper, since even having just one is a learning experience in and of itself.

    I know that i dont want to rush things, and ive taken advice on board by plenty of other members on here none of which was worded like that there is no need for it simple as that! Plus if i wanted his/her advice i would have asked.

    That's why I buy slings instead of adults. You can fit so many more into a handful even if it is a small one.

    I only have 5 at the moment. G.pulchripes, G.pulchra, B.Hamorii, B.albopolosum, A.moderatum. Smallest being about 12mm and the largest about 35-40mm. They have a ways to go.

    Ive just got a P. Everetti about 30mm dls and a P. Cambrigei thats just about 40mm from @KezyGLA there fast but seem to be quite calm at this size. Going to be fun when there bigger lol. My G. Pulchripes is still tiny but its a slow grower and ive read it can take nearly 4 years to fully grow
