Mine are 1 molt from breeding. You’ll really appreciate them once they get about half an inch.Just got three of these. To tiny to see any details (with the naked eye), can't wait till grow.
Hehe. Just let it happen.Darn you -- more beautiful pix - now I'm gonna want a L. bishopi!!!
They have that tiny little face that looks like a bowling ball. And yes, they rarely bite.And why do recluses look so darn cute? I've heard they rarely bite unless truly cornered or disturbed by people.
What's the news on L . deserta venom? I hear they're the mildest of the familyHere’s some of the Loxosceles that I have.

Loxosceles venom is understudied, especially for species that don’t come in contact with humans very often. I’ve never seen any evidence to suggest any species has mild venom. On the other hand, South American species like laeta, intermedia, and gaucho have pretty toxic venom relative to the North American species.What's the news on L . deserta venom? I hear they're the mildest of the family
