Aphonopelma mooreae sling
I have 4 of these little guys. So far, mine have been very shy and 2 have completely buried themselves for about 2 months now off and on. They do seem enthusiastic to eat though. Also, as a side note, I've heard these called the "rich man's GBB" so I am sticking with that common name. Congrats!!
 
Also got one yesterday (from the same Fear Not sale?) and one thing I noticed is just how fast this sling is. Thankfully I managed to get it into its new 2 oz deli cup home.
 
@theDHill Lol I didn’t pay that much for it. Are yours from the same batch?

@volcanopele Yesss ours are sac mates :) Mine is not that fast, but it did tumble over itself trying to get away from my pokey finger last night.

A friend of mine has another of their sacmates and hers molted last night, so maybe ours will, too.
 
Mine isn't so dark yet (a very small patch), but I have an A. chalcodes that is close in size, so I'm going to be keeping a close eye on these two nerds to compare their development. Very excited about waiting 6,000 years for their maturity ;)
 
I got mine for $50 a piece as mystery spiders, also from Fear Not. I had a pretty good guess that's what they were so I doubled down twice and got 4 for $200
