Its nice to see an adult, good looking female.
That must be my slings mama.
John gave me the sling as a freebie when I bought some of his
P. murinus slings.
Its a 1/4" and slow growing.

Brandon is correct on the locale. I purchased this female from John Hoke at last year's ATS convention. I fell in love with her as soon as I took her out of the container in the hotel room. Docile as could be. She was collected by John's helper (whose name escapes me at the moment,... Mark, no I think it's Matt.) in the Wichita Mountains. A few weeks after I got her home she dropped an eggsac. She was a good mama and I left the sac with her up to the end, pulling it at 55 days. I have approximately 450 babies. Yes, they are slow growing. None have molted since I separated them out in September. John

Hey, that's whom I got Besterr, my B. Smithi, from :) He guaranteed me that Besterr was a female. I hope he's right. I can't wait for her to grow up. She's already looking like a beauty :)
