They are very great. I wish I could care them but I haven´t the place for them.

Hey Mori,
How big are they, they all look like females. Very nice healthy ones at that. If you have a stop over in rome for any length of time, let me know.
Thanks,
Mike

1.5" body lenth is pretty good size, the legs always make them look much bigger. The easiest way to sex them is to look at the palp length. Males are much larger. Here are two molts, the male is on the top and the female on the bottom of the picture.

Mori is right, they are not commen as CB babies. They are moderately easy to breed, I have 30 2nd instar CBB babies that I bred here with 2 more females with eggs.

They are not that bad as babies, just keep the humidity high, the tank moist and not too hot. Otherwise they have real bad molts. They do come off the cork and wander around, my adults even do once in a great while.

Some more info would be nice:
Are they communual?
What do you feed them?
How long do they live?
Are they safe to handle?
any other basic care info.
I was one of these in the pet store and might get it.
