    She's quite highly strung and prone to bolting but she's grown pretty fast and hits prey like a freight train, they also web like crazy for a Grammo.

    My new Gooty Sapphire! I just changed its Substrate out because I noticed a little bit of mold growth in the substrate! It didn't much like being moved around, but I did it by gently coaxing it out of its container, cleaning it thoroughly with hot water and adding new substrate, and putting the spider back in. It's very happy and hiding under its leaf now instead of clinging to the side!

    And my little Brazilian Black! This is before its first molt with me! It has now had its first molt, and is already a little bigger. This little guy is a voracious eater and chases crickets across its enclosure. It also crawled out onto my hand when I removed the top to feed it. This little baby is very, very calm even as a tiny spiderling and I love it! The molt was too small to inspect for gender, so I'll wait until it gets bigger to attempt to sex it.

    It took him/her 5 months and 4 moults to get from a teeny-weeny ~ 1/5" sling, that just ate for the first time in its life, to this whopping 1" inch sling. :D
