I got my new M GBB from scoolman yesterday and thought I'd let him settle in before taking pics. Well, I should've taken them sooner cause he went into hiding...lol. He immediately took cover under the coconut hide I had for him. He was still there this morning when I checked on him before work. I had to tilt it up slightly to see him, but once I saw his little orange butt I knew he was ok. When I got home today I looked again and noticed something different and right away knew he had changed his hiding place. A little hollow skull I had put in there had eyeballs that were'nt there this morning....lol. I guess he felt a little violated when I peeked in on him and thought"..."I'll show her. She'll never see me in here"

No female as of yet. He's still pretty young. I'd like to tho when the time comes. Probably will do some sort of deal w/ a female owner cause my budget won't pay for a female right now and the price will only go higher by the time he matures. Right now my money is set aside for 6 versi slings I'm getting in April.

I've actually seen them listed quite often thru larger breeders. They can be pricey tho.

Congrats! I actually got my GBB (my first T as well) yesterday. Got it from PetCenter USA. It ate 3 crickets & spun a web already. I was pretty amazed a 1.5" sling did a web.

I guess it's happy?

Petcenterusa.net has juvie GBBs (1-1.5") for $40 and they list on here also.
Not a bad deal, and these guys grow pretty fast. I got Hugo (newspidermom's new GBB), and his sister, when they were .5" slings one year ago March 18. Now he is easily 4". I still have his sister who is now about 5".
They are great Ts to watch.
I love Hugo's decorating style NMS, can't wait to see how he webs up that skull.

Well, I guess he's still makin up his mind where his favorite spot is. This morning he was back inside his coco hut. I was able to see his legs at the entrance so I threw a dubia in and he snatched it up without hesitation. Obviously he's settling in fine. Hopefully I can catch him out soon to take some pics.
