How can this be? This is a Grammostola grossa mature male. How can he be mature at such a small size? This is ridiculous - he isn't that much bigger than my Homoeomma chilensis mature male.
I thought I had a long time before this boy matured.
Cornifer passed away sometime in the last few days. This legend just managed to make it passed 2 years of maturity, and got to produce a healthy sac of offspring. He was wrongly sexed and supposed to have been female, but i dont regret keeping him for a second. No more map making for this old man
What a beautiful boy!
He ran onto me when I unboxed him and I was shaking. Never handled anything like that before and was not going to but I’m glad I did. He was so calm and gentle.
First pairing went really well! Wish I got better pictures for educational purposes but I didn’t want that to take priority over my male surviving as I hope to pair him at least once more and then make him my first proper taxidermy project.
