    Hey Jabbewocky,

    isn't it P. murinus, not P. mammicatuus (Also OBT can me orange baboon tarantula).

    and to expand that helpful post:

    KB = King baboon (C. crawshayi)
    GBB = Green bottle blue (C. cyaneopubescens)
    LP = L. parahybana

    DCF= dark color form
    RCF= red color form
    TCF = typical or "true" color form
    LCF = Light color form

    Thanks guys!

    One of these days I'm going to get around to fixing all the search links, I just need to get back to Caco's thread and manually create them!

    A couple other things:

    What do the numbers mean?

    I see this one once every week or so...


    For example:

    1.2.3 = 1 male, 2 females, 3 unsexed.
    0.1 = 1 female.
    1.0 = 1 male.


    Species name is not capitalized.

    Brachypelma smithi...not Brachypelma Smithi. I've been seeing this a lot lately, too. :}

    Tarantula venom compared to bee venom

    The original question involved whether or not someone allergic to bee venom would have an allergic reaction to tarantula venom. Click the little blue arrow to open up the original thread.

    Yes, my mistake. I'm surprised nobody corrected me on that before.
    OBT can also mean "Orange Bastard Tarantula."

    All they did was search "enclosure" and check "Search titles only" in the search bar. It has been a while since their post and Arachnoboards has been updated in that time. Here's the link to what it should've brought up: http://arachnoboards.com/search/8860057/?q=enclosure&o=date&c[title_only]=1

    Hi everyone I am new to arachnoboards here but have read many threads and posts to keep up on my tarantulas. I got my first T. Back in may last year and I was an enthusiast ever since, now I got 6, 2 adults, 1 juvenile, and 3 slings. I have a question and my acanthoscurria geniculata (brazilian giant white knee) sling, about a 1/2" dls. I got the T. Almost 2 mo. Ago and it has not molted since I got her. (I'm using "her/ she" loosely as I won't know the sex until it gets older.) She is a burrower as they usually are until they get older, but she refuses to eat for about a month now and it looks like she closed up her burrow a little bit. Is that a tell tale sign that she is about to molt soon? Has anybody ever experienced this situation with a sling not molting? Any feedback will begreat

    P.s. I'm not worried or any thing like that I just want to know if anyone ever beenthrough this phase with a sling

    My 6 arachnids are: AcanthoscurriaGeniculata, Aphonopelma Seemanni,Aphonopelma Hentzi, Brachypelma Smithi, Chromotopelma Cyaneopuebesences, andGrammostola Pulchripes.
