hello, just wanted to show my first Ts. I'm still new to this, started last November only.

L. Parahybana


C. Fasciatum


G. Rosea


C. Cyaneopubescens


B. Albopilosum


I still have a P. Cambrigei that I can't seem to get a good shot of. Everytime it runs to its hide or makes a run out of its bin. :embarrassed:

yes, I've read about that. And I'm expecting it to be that way as it eats very well, I'm running out of nymphs! :D

next molt they will be a dirty pink color and the next after that they should be blue from the looks and size of it

@ web eviction - mine is around 1" dls, molted last 12/6/2010 and it looks like the first pic you posted. So this means I have to wait 2 more molts for it to have blue legs? :( Oh well, it seems to be ignoring its food, i'll have to check if its due for molt.

@ John - For now I think this set will do. Although I'm still trying to find a G. Pulchra and B. Smithi as both of its care sheets are already filed. :D

@ tarantulagirl10 - oh, i guess we have the same eagerness to see them grow no?

Great looking family you have there :D

That C. fasciatum looks amazing, and of course the GBB is the eye catcher.

@Suidakkra & ILoveBHO - thanks.

@web eviction - wow, it molted that fast? how frequent do you feed it? I feed by GBB at most 2x per week - a lat the same size as the GBB.

I see. I knew that its appetite is really good, but I never thought it to be on a daily basis as well. :D yeah, on a serving, it really fattens up!

I will check later tonight if it decides to eat, then maybe start doing it every other day. thanks for the tip. :)

yeah, i was surprised to see a different T when I opened its bin. I didn't know that it would be that soon as it stopped eating about 2 days before the molt.

I gave it a whole mealworm this morning as a treat. :}

Btw, the GBB still refused its food last night. I guess its about to molt. {D Hopefully its gonna have its blue legs by then. {D

I've read about the obt, good luck with it. It wont be on my list for now. :D

web, a little info about your GBB - would you have an account as to how many days yours stopped eating before it molted? Mine hasn't been eating for a week now, I tried again last night if it will eat, but no. Its abdomen is still huge though, but still no molt after a week of no-eating.
