Well, Sunday my better half and I drove back home from the ATS conference in Carlsbad. We decided to stop by a Petco in Santa Fe to pick up crickets for all our new companions and while we were there I noticed they had some spiders. So of course I couldn’t resist the temptation and bought one, a beautiful 3.5-inch or so ‘Rose Hair’ she is a very well mannered ‘Rose Hair’ though she kicks a bit. Well needless to say they were all out of crickets and their mealworms were mostly dead but it wasn’t a complete loss, after all I, eventually, made it home (whole other story) with a new ‘Rose Hair’. Anyway without further ado here is a picture of my new $14.99 ‘Rose Hair’… enjoy =D

That does suck though - my Petco only has 'rose hairs' that look like yours for 100$ - and they're kept horribly :(

Pelo-

yes... it does look frighteningly like a B. smithi doesn't it? I'm sure if that manager said it was a Rose Hair then it must be, right? JK

Actually they didn't have any Rose Hairs, plenty of Pinktoes, Curly Hairs, and the one MRK, go figure.

Buspirone-

Acording to the manager that is the most common color phase for Rose Hairs. If you have anything diffrent then it must by a rare one ;).

Haven't sexed it yet, maybe tonight but I have a 5-inch female so I wouldn't complain either way.

No joking Don. That was the cheapest smithi I have ever seen. I couldn't pass that offer up. I just wish they had more.

Tonight, a reply from MrMatt:

Dang... that dang 'Rose Hair' is a male! I'm taking it back right now, they promised me it was a girl!;)

Yes it would be very cool though if it turns out to be a she.

Well... After a run around the room that left me itching like a flea ridden dog I am fairly confident my new 'Rose Hair' is a she. :)

Now I need to plan to go back to the store and pick up some of those P. Metallicas... I mean Pinktoes. JK =D
