    When the one I have dies I'm buying a female t blondi. It's about 8 inches now how long do you think before it dies.

    They are quite similar.
    Theraphosa blondi is known to be the largest spider on earth. Its has more setae on the legs, coloration wise is a tiny bit different, although depending on the molt stage...

    Which one is nicer?

    They both have terrible urticating hairs.

    Why not start with something like G. pulchripes instead so you can get your feet wet before jumping into the quicksand?

    We tried our hand with the Theraphosa sp. and it didn't exactly turn out well. We had ordered 2 females and a male...they all turned out to be male, so we got replacements that were also supposed to be female...but they turned out to be male as well. A few of them died because of bad molts, and we decided to hold off on trying to raise and breed the goliaths for now. We have a LP sling that we have been raising and another Theraphosa sling. They are fun enough for now. It helps that they were CB, instead of WC.
