Meant to say I have taller ones as well, probably twice as large.
The small container is 1.75" tall, the holes are made with a screw so they're only a couple of millimetres wide, so no chance of escape, I'm getting taller ones but they're coming with the slings.What size is the cup? Sorry it's hard to say without some reference numbers. I wouldn't go taller unless you were wanting more substrate for them to burrow in. Keep an eye on the carapace size and make sure it's not smaller than the vents you have in the cup.
If those two things are ok you should be good. I like to add in a small water dish for all my Ts even the small slings. It's not necessary but I feel better by doing so.
Yes I think so, there's also a picture of them pairing, they're stunning. I'll post it when I get some time.Is that a photo of the mom? if so, she is adorable! I love how fuzzy they are.
I'm not sure either, but according to the seller these are the first offered in the U.K.I'm not sure about in Europe but in the US they are not as common as the hobby form but are by no means rare
@Leila Thanks sweetie, that's really nice of you, I'm really hoping for a male and a female of course...lol
They aren't rare in the US. A few factors are people don't want to purchase wild caught animals cause of diseases that the animals may carry. That has never stop me from purchasing wild caught tarantulas, I feel you let them slip away if you think this way to much. Another factor I believe most people still look at them that they are just a curly hair. That's a big no, no in my book. Get them while you can while they are available, cause you never know when Nicaragua will shutdown........I can still purchase 200 wild caught adults if I really want to clean my importer out of stock for now.From what I've gathered, the Nicaraguan form is rare for now, both in Europe and the US. BUT there are several sacs in the process of dropping and being hatched and raised, and the sacs of this form are just as big as the hobbyform. So they won't be rare for long.
