    Ok again another one that I have been told that is a feamle but I have doubt in.. I really think male but I am completely unsure really.. I dont know if the photos are going to be clear enough it was the best I could get unless I took him/her out of the enclosure.. Anyways here are the pictures what do yall think??


    Alright those are the best I can do with him/her in the enclosure.. I know you cant be 100% certain without a molt but I would like to see what yall think..

    Also where would I send my molts off to so I can confirm if its male or female??

  4. You can send me the molt if you want.

    Its kinda old does that matter? Or should I wait till the next one?

    Looks male to me.
  7. Doesn't matter as long as the spermathecae area is intact. I can soften it and shape it how I need to.

    But yeah, the pics look maleish.

    Aight I am going to have to find out where its at and I will get back to you and send the molt to ya.. If its a male I might have to trade it off for something different.. Like a some babies so I can get a communal going.. :D
  9. Rofl! Now who would have communal OBT slings...:rolleyes:

    Certainly not I. ;)

  12. Thanks. :)

    Sathane, you're just too far north, that's all. We still love you. ;)

    Btw, nice weather you've got there today.

    So how many slings do you have in your communal?

    I would like to try a few different communal setups.

    It's 11C (about 52F) right here but I can see that the sun is out. I haven't been out of the house in a while though. :( I'd still rather have your 26C (79F) though.

    Oh crap I dont think I could be able to handle 52F nope... I think I done lived in Texas to long and got used to the perfect weather year around.. :D

    What? This is warm. Give it a few months. Although, the winters these last few years have been relatively mild. Lowest temps hitting around -25C (-13F). I remember about 5 years ago when it was normal for temperatures to hit -40C (-40F). Then there is the wind and snow storms to factor in.
    Needless to say, Canada has no native tarantulas. :(

    Yeaa I think I am good with my winters being 60F at the lowest 55F.. Right at the moment I am lovin the 73F.. It can stay this way forever and Im good..

    I need to move south. :wall:


  19. Can't say I agree with this...move to Hawaii and you'll change your mind.

    I haven't counted my second clutch; wouldn't surprise me if there's about 100 slings in there though. The first clutch is the one I've been pulling from to fill orders; started out with about 110 and is probably down to...50 or so at this point. I don't mind selling most of them but at the same time I'm not going to be heartbroken if I get to carry this communal out to adulthood.

    And Sathane, the housing market is crap down here, you could get a decent place pretty cheap. You'd have a business partner for the T hobby waiting for you. ;)
  20. I'd give it a shot. Tried with S. calceatum but one bad ass started picking the others off.
