Advertisement Hello all - long time lurker, first time poster. On Tuesday, my daughter and I purchased our first (of what I am beginning to suspect will be many) tarantula - a B. Smithi - "certified" female. The certification was supposedly verified by the breeder, but, one never knows. I think we got a relatively good deal $60. I've handed her a few times to make some adjustments to her home, so far, she's been as sweet as pie - the only trouble I've had, is that once in hand, she doesn't want to get down. Based on the supplied photos, and I know this is a really, really long shot - would you agree she's a female, or are the photos simply not sufficient?
