How small a spider do you want pics of? I have some of N. coloratovillosus ( Brazil black and white ) if you want larger sling / juv pics.

The tarantula picture forum can be very helpful............

But when it comes to slings that small a lot of them look like. I dont know how much Iding you can doing with pics and something that small.

Check out that section though, I am sure there are a few pics that will help you out.

I suspect she keeps hers in a small deli where there is no where to go.
I do the same thing till they starting getting to 2.5-3" then they get their own Kritter keeper.

At that size, some of the slings mentioned would be almost impossible to tell what species they are.

yea but not if the seller bought them from a breeder who knows exactly what they are. Im sure at 1 1/2" one could tell at least some differences between these 4 kinds i mentioned when looking at a photos.

THe Nhandu probably, but the other two could be harder.

Photos aren't even 100% in accurately IDing adults, what would make it possible with slings. Especially with several Acanthoscurria spp. and Aphonopelma spp.

so your saying if there were 4 side by side pictures(closeup quality pictures) of each of these slings at say 1 1/2 inches one wouldnt be able to sell any differences?

At 1/2 inches, most likely yes, but you said 1/4" too. Also are you sure you have those species and just don't know which is which? Cause I thought you were asking us to ID them from all other T species.

yea i agree at 1/4" no, but i def. think at 1 1/2" one would see differences.

I wasnt asking for an ID, just a picture request. And no I dont have any of these. If you go to swiftinverts.com you will notice they are the current freebies he is offering and I just was woundering what they all look like as slings. If I had all of these and wanted them ID'ed, well then i would ask for an ID.

Ah alright, see I thought you didn't know what you had. Sorry about the confusion.

Even at 1" though, some slings can't be IDed.

I'll try to find some pics for you.

No problem, and yea I agree T's in the same family might be harder to tell apart at that size than totally different kinds. But ya thanks i appreciate you lookin for some pics(ive been lookin to lol)

I took this picture when I first got the sling and put it in the Tupperware container. After it built its burrow it also would hide. I make it a point to handle all my T’s container as well so they do not immediately bolt, which is nice when picture time comes. Even my H maculata will stay out for a little while before it retreats to its burrow now.
