well turns out the guy got kicked out of his apartment, and couldnt take his spiders with him to his new apartment. so he gave me this and a small obt. i gave the obt away already bc i simply dont want to bother with that lil monster.

he/she is very fastly becoming 1 of my favorites.

Wow, I paid over a hundred and fifty for one smaller than that one. You are one lucky dude. Good catch. Mine is by far my favorite.

Daaaaang. I spent $40 on a sling last week! I REALLY wish someone would give me a tarantula! Congrats, now post ventral pics in the sexing area so we can see what he/she is.

ventral pics will have to wait, he/she doesnt climb very often. and i have never did the grasp method between the legs.. so when he/she climbs again i will take a pic for sure.

wish i had a digital camera when i had the last molt..
