    H. gigas is suddenly 5"! Unfortunately it looks like a male because the rear legs aren't thick. Beautiful though.

    Getting big! These are indeed quite striking in their own understated way. Assuming you haven't been able to get a molt usable for sexing purposes? Mine almost always destroy their molts or leave them smushed way down in their burrows... not sure how confident you are about the leg thickness method of sexing, but maybe you'll end up surprised!

    Yeah, no molt has survived. The last one I saw smashed up against the side of the enclosure deep within the burrow. It was basically pulverized like a food bolus. I'm not very sure about the leg thickness method, and it may differ between different bloodlines of H. gigas. So maybe there's still hope!

    Our unknown tarantula we got 1.5 years ago molted again, but is still about 0.75". Getting a little color now though. Best guess is that it's some type of Aphonopelma.

    Nice Pamphobeteus! I've got a pair of machala myself. If you're looking to breed in the future, I can let you know when he matures (if he survives pairing with my female lol). I'm relatively certain we got them from the same dealer as I saw a picture credited to you on his site, so there's no confusion on species. Let me know if you are interested.

    She finally molted! 1 year since last molt. Went from about 4" to 4.3" I would say. More pics coming after she hardens up. IMG_6184.JPG

    These Borneo Blacks might be a handful when they get bigger

    A pretty juvie male genic.

    Ok, so I've disparaged the new B. albopilosum coming out of Nicaragua before, but these really are so much more stunning than the hobby form from Honduras.

    Well, my H. gigas was indeed a male as I feared. Shipped him off yesterday for a date

    I see your B. albiceps doesn't have any bald patches. Is yours much of a hair-kicker? I've got a 1" albiceps sling and I'm hoping S/he doesn't flick as much as the other Brachypelma I've experienced.

    She isn't very flicky at all. My B. hamorii is much flickier. She only kicks when she's getting ready to molt, like she's doing now:

    Thanks for answering! I hope your girl has an easy, problem-free molt. I was wondering if my albiceps would be less flicky because I haven't seen them kick once but I wasn't sure if it'd set in when they got older/bigger.
