The bald patch on his butt will turn almost black when he is REALLY close to molting, but the fact that he is so plump and so young I'm sure a molt is not far away. Nice sling by the way, I'm contemplating getting one monday, hmmmm...
Love the name Pyro too :D

Yea, its been on my list for awhile, but then again so have 50 other species lol. I'm getting a versi, P irminia, and burgundy goliath on monday & depending how big my check is this weekend, I'll hopefully get the smithi too. If not, I'll just have to wait 2 more weeks :D
My regalis' name is Patrick :)

Yea, I've had mine since he was a sling & he's over 4in now and still does nothing but burrows. Humidity is perfect and he has plenty of climbing space, but he decided to build an elaborate series of tunnels instead. He makes little domes of web and dirt at the bases of objects and against the glass & tunnels down from there. I've seen him climb maybe 5 times in less then a year, go figure lol. Arboreal, my ass.
How many other T's you got?
