    Wow, he isn't taking his time growing.

    What the heck... that is massively impressive growth. How many moults occurred in that time?

    2 molts, the second one was jaw dropping! I love Goliaths, this one is especially intimidating. He moves like Lightning.

    Red Bone is a Nhandu Chromatus 1" Sling. I bought it at a local
    pet shop about 3 weeks ago. He is refusing food right now.

    IMG_0011 (2).JPG IMG_0011 (2).JPG Looks like my first Singapore Blue molted at 4.5" to be a Male.
    Colors are nice and a bit subdued.

    I finally managed to photograph the second Singapore Blue. It
    could be a female? 4.5" L.

    This was a 3/4" Freebie Asia Smokey. It was covered by substrate and thick webbing
    in a deli cup for 3 mo and relocated to a small KK up to now, It needs a new enclosure
    now and I am looking for a suitable one but that is not a problem, I just wanted to
    show it now that it is out and walking on the surface and not hiding in a tunnel.

    image.jpeg When I get bored and I see people posting really nice pictures of their tarantulas I like to edit the pics. It doesn't neccasarily make the picture look better, but I think it makes it look cool. Basically what I did was increase DOF with blur feature in my editing software. Then I sharpened up the photo because a few of the hairs were out of focus. Next I enhanced the photo with a food photography style of enhancing. That's as simple as I can put it lol. I could do other stuff but that would require using fliters, and this tarantula is already so pretty I wouldn't want to do that. Very nice tarantula! Oh almost forgot haha, here's the picture. There a couple of patches I forgot in the DOF but from a distance it's not too noticeable.

    Your C. dyscolus appears to be a mature male!

    When I got him he was less than 3/4" and thin. that was 17 months ago,
    Could he possibly be MM at current age?

    My C. dyscolus went from 1” to mature male in less than a year. And he looked similar to yours when mature:
