Hey guys, i´m kind of curious if there is any truth to the myth of a 10inch LP or a 12 inch Theraposa?
What are your experiences? Do you have a tarantula which comes close to those claimed sizes? If you have, please show me in this thread :)
My three year old LP recently molted and is about 18-19cm now and she is huge fo me
The verified world record for a T blondi is 30cm legspan, so it’s not a myth.

I don´t doubt the record but it´s still strange to me that so few people here have actually seen a spider in that size category. Maybe it was a 1/10000 specimen?
