How cute!!!
Was it a freebie?

I got one as a freebie from Kelly on 2-20-03 & it was soooo little that I had to put on my glasses to see it. Looked just like a wee little moving speck.:D
Since then......it has molted on me 2 times & grown some. Now I can see it without my glasses.=D It is a good eater except when approaching molt......then it quits eating for a couple of weeks. It has reached 1/2" leg span & is quite a Little Miracle. (its name) :D

Couldn't even see it with my third eye, LOL! (see AV) ~:0)

I love the tiny little t's. Whichever is the smallest is usually my favorite. Kelly Swift threw in my current fav. as a freebie with our last order. We have had him for a week now, and he is SOOOO cute. His name is Cadburry, he is a Chaco Golden Knee (Grammastola aureostriata). I took this picture just now, with a dime for sizing purposes. Isn't he adorable??

ohmygod. you know, six months ago, no one (including me) would've ever believed i would've held, much less willingly gone close to a T, much less an ordinary wolf spider (they flock around me here...lol).

now, i have my own G. rosea, think she's beautiful and am thinking s'lings are one of the cutest friggin' things i have ever laid eyes upon.

that's it, i've lost it...i'm checking in someplace, any suggestions? ;)

sigh...:(

Well, G. aureostriata was my last freebie too from swifty too. Mine is definately bigger than yours, and since I imagine they are s'iblings, I'm guessing mine is male.

I'm thinking Swift is rather fond of sending out wee freebies... The Usambar I received from him was and is incredibly small, and still black. He's in premolt now, though, and has been eating like crazy so maybe he'll grow a bit...

Hmm... Maybe not. Maybe they aren't from the same sac at all! Chin up Jon, don't give it up as male yet.
