My T. blondi molted last night! It added some size and looks great, though its coloring is darker than before. This is especially exciting since my other T. blondi died recently due to petsitter negligence.

Good luck with your blondi. Maybe when it gets huge you can supply us with a picture that is a good indication of its size. Most pictures are just the T, and there is nothing to compare it to for relative size. Id love to see a 13" spider sitting next to a barbie or a sword.

I wish I had pictures of the adult female I used to own, she was enormous! I ended up taking her down to the local baitshop to show her off because the owner asked why I was always in there buying maggots and other grubs. When I told him I owned tarantulas, he kind of scoffed at me and dared me to bring one in and show him. The next time I went in, I set the plastic box with her in it down next to the measuring bar on the counter and the owner of the shop nearly swallowed his dentures.

I got a fairly accurate measurement of my t (12.5"), he got pictures and called all of his cronies down to the shop to look at "the spider from hell." He also gave me my feeders for free that day.

Galeogirl,
What happened, or where is that monster T now?
Has it gone to that happy hunting ground?

When I got divorced a few years back I had to sell almost all of my pets, including Malice, the T. blondi. I'm just starting to rebuild my collection now.

My T Blondi grew very rapidly molting three times in a year and it was an adult female. Is this abnormal?
