so i've had an adult arboreal before but this is my first experience raising one on my own i'm excited. sunday at my local reptile/invert club meeting i traded a bunch of dram vials with exotipet for a A metillica sling it's so cute and i can't wait till it gets it's blue coloring it's about an inch in size and i just love it's little webbing it has done and i'm so excited to watch it grow up i also was given a curlyhair sling from ladysharon who saw my post a while back about all my curlyhairs dying in molt and gave me my new sling i'm so happy it was a good weekend despite a flat tire and plumbing issues lol

thats really cool...congrats...i wanna get some A. metallicas...i got a 2-2 1/2 inch B. Albopilosum, curlyhair, and that thing is a bottomless pit...scared the heck outta me one night when i stuck a paintbrush in there removing some leftovers, and it attacked the brush thinking it was food...
