    Mexican red knee not eaten for almost 5 months

    Honestly, I didn’t look that hard. Good eye on you. @Robert Northam you definitely should dry out the substrate

    Mexican red knee not eaten for almost 5 months

    How long ago was the molt? It looks pretty plump so I wouldn’t worry about it not eating right now.

    Mexican red knee not eaten for almost 5 months

    Mind posting pictures of it? Tarantulas normally fast for long periods of time. Although, since you say it hasn’t eaten since its last molt, it sounds like it is either a mature male, or a sucking stomach problem. Also, do you have it’s last molt still?

    Places With The Least Tarantula Regulations

    Yeah, thankfully not all of Canada though. I suspect the bans are heavier in areas with higher population density. A venomous animal on the loose in a separated house is much different than one lost in an apartment complex.

    No. I don’t actually live in Toronto, more like a 40 minute drive away. Don’t want to put my town as my location though :P My collection is doing quite well :)

    Places With The Least Tarantula Regulations

    Laval, Quebec. I feel like OP is talking about Toronto. Not sure what their laws are exactly, but I know they're really strict and recently a member on here had to sell their collection because their landlord found out.

    B. hamorii tips?

    If you’re comfortable, the T probably is too. I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

    Will a tarantula come out of her hide if she's hungry?

    Generaly, yes. It’s pretty anti-instinctual for a healthy animal to hide until it starves to death. If there is an animal that acts this way while not ill, I’m very curious to learn of it.

    My first OBT

    Okay, touche. I didn't see that for scale, or realize that OP got a close pic

    My first OBT

    Removed because I'm a silly boy who can't use scales Gonna add this back in again because I have support now. Definitely looks larger than 1” to me. My guess is on 2”ish as well

    [Inquiry] Purchasing juvenile/mature tarantulas vs. slings

    Amen. Never will I buy anything large enough to be sexed that hasn’t been. If I want to risk getting a male, then I will pay sling prices.

    Beginner getting an OBT

    Yeah, I've noticed a few of these types of threads lately. Glad it's not just me going crazy. @OP you're taking a nice large leap here. Just be glad it is only 1". You have some time to get used to it before its a lean, mean, flighty, bitey (and fast) machine. Follow the advice you've been...

    Molt stuck on abdomen

    You can use a wet q-tip and tweezers to try and gently remove it

    Should I get one?

    My rule of thumb is: If you have to ask if you’re ready, then you probably aren’t Tarantulas aren’t something you want to be second guessing yourself while working with. You need composure when dealing with species as fast and potent as these

    Is this okay?

    The only *potential* disadvantage to more holes is that the substrate can dry out faster Not saying you don’t have enough, just that more isn’t harmful

    Is this okay?

    Personally, I’d add more holes on the side to ensure it doesn’t get stuffy in there. Otherwise nothing stands out to me, but I’d wait on some other people to give their opinions.

    Is this enclosure ok?

    No need to spray, just keep the bowl full. Add more substrate, that looks like a long fall. Also, is that a heat mat I see? Is it controlled by a thermostat so it won’t cook your T? Heating is only needed if your room gets too cold. If you’re comfy, so is the T
