Man, I do not envy this guy's life. I mean, I am busy and I have 20 Ts and 1.5 kiddos and I have never felt that I don't have enough time to care for all of them. I wonder what life circumstances have to look like to not have the time to take care of a Rosie... Fill the water once a week and feed once every 1-2 months! Heck, I hear they even let you go on feeding vacation from time to time. Not a life I want to live. Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 10.08.50 PM.png

You have 1.5 children? o_O

But even you didn't list the minimum care requirements. Water once per month, and a big meal twice per year :p

EDIT: Wait, were you using a numbering system? You've got one boy and five girls? Good God man, your house is an estrogen molotov cocktail...

If only you lived in Illinois. That's a great deal for a female!

Nine times out of ten, adopting through Craigslist or the like results in either a mature male or a penultimate male. At least in my experience.

Buying "unsexed" 2"+ on this sites classifieds has yielded mostly males. Oh well lol. B vagans, P vittatta, newest pamphobeteus sp goliath, A seemanni all big enough to sex, sold as unsexed, and all molted into males lol. I should probably stick to tiny ones or just buy females.

Yeah, in this hobby, "unsexed 2 inch spiders" is code for "certainly male 2 inch spiders"

Well damn, maybe we've all been doing the care wrong! We clearly haven't been walking or playing with our Ts enough

I've seen that excuse countless times on online ads and it makes the poster look like an idiot.
