A noob question. What is DLS?
Diagonal leg span - front left leg to right rear leg.
Thanks. I did not know.
You're welcome, in no time at all you'll get used to all the terms, here are some to get you started:
MM - Mature Male
MF - Mature female
sp. - species
1.2.3 - 1 male tarantula, 2 female tarantulas, 3 unsexed tarantulas.
You'll find some other terms that may confuse you, if in doubt just ask, the only silly question is the one that is not asked.
Thanks. I definitely do not hesitate to ask questions. Haha. When I first got interested in Ts ... which was a long time ago although I only got my first one recently, I was only familiar with the common names of the Ts. Now, I am more familiar with their real (scientific) names. But my familiarity is limited to the NW T's only and only the popular ones.
Which are your favourites? - scientific names remember - LOL
I have grammostola pulchripes (female juvi - my first one) and a female aphonopelma seemani. I am looking to get a brachypelma hamorii too.
My other favorites are grammostola pulchra, b emilia, g rosea and e campestratus ... sorry if I misspelled some.
And I need to apologize to the OP for apparently hijacking this thread.
The enclosure looks massive for such a small T. This will lead to your spider hiding a lot more. Tarantulas don't feel secure in large open spaces...
Way too much height as well, if she falls from the top it could be fatal. I would rehouse her into something much smaller.
Or the other way around, as long as it's measured diagonally.
There's still far too much height. Rehouse her...the setup should look something like this.
No need for apologies, it happens all the time - You'll have to have a look at G. iheringi, stunning Grammostola. See the way I typed the name that's how it should be written, I'm not nit picking I'm just letting you know.
You don't need to write the genus in full, just the species and the species should be in italics. Nice choices by the way, especially G. pulchra, BBB - haha, Big Black Beauty as @basin79 likes to call his, lastly welcome to AB - you'll enjoy this forum.
Nope. My BBB is:
My bad, who calls there's that then I remember your BBB, I must be mistaken -
Beautiful Black Bulldozer - Big Black Beauty? mmm? Oh well, I still love the acronym!
