Im considering getting one of these. How big do these guys eventually get?
If you can't find any info on it, it would be good to keep in mind that Lasiodora Striatus used to be called pamphobeteus wallacei.Originally posted by Alonso99
Holy crap, yours is that big and it let you do that?Originally posted by Joy
Do you mean Lasiodorides striatus? If so, they get pretty good sized. 8" legspan isn't uncommon. Here's a picture of one of mine.
I have found these to have a somewhat skittish temperament, but they aren't at all prone to bite IME.Originally posted by AlbinoDragon829

It just so happens I doOriginally posted by AlbinoDragon829
I've seen some similar pics of people on these boards holding their big tarantulas.. And those pictures have that similar red background.. Do you have any other pics of big tarantulas being held?
Judging from the looks, that appears to be a T. Blondi, am I correct?Originally posted by Joy

(Nick, I have been here since Saturday. I am hoping to be an arachnoknight by next Saturday, LOL)
Yes, it's a blondi. That picture was taken not long after she molted, when she was still pretty skinny. Here's a picture showing her current statusOriginally posted by AlbinoDragon829
Maybe it's just me, but after taking another look at the abdomen on that blondi (if it is indeed one), that abdomen would make a great shifting knob on a gear shifter
