    Good show, chap!

    The first moult w/a new sling is always exciting, and for some of us the excitement is brand new every time, no matter how many moults we live through!

    Good looking slings.
    The substrate looks a tad wet though.
  8. yeah the substrate was a bit wet, i had just soaked it but its drier now. i didnt get to see them molt :( but i saw 3 legs sticking out from under the curly hairs little den ... while she/he was sitting on top of the mound so i figured it didnt clone :cool: hehe im so excited, cant wait for them to be a few inches!

    "Precious" is a great name for the B. albopilosum, but "BR Deli" seems a bit odd for a G. aureostriata... ;P :D

    You beat me to the names spidergoddess!

    I can't say by 1st person experience for curlies, but both are the faster growers of their respective families. Little Chaco's, in particular, grow vigorously in the 1st couple years of their lives.
  11. lol my gramma took me shopping a few years ago at petco and i was looking at the tarantulas but my mom wouldnt let me have one, but my gramma said if i named it precious, she'd buy it for me. but i got a rat instead, and figured id name it precious for grams
