Well, after getting back into the hobby, my 1st order was a disaster as the H. gigas sling was doa and the T. gigas s'ling that came with it died 2 days later. I have no idea what happened to the T. gigas. It is the only spider that has ever just died on me with no apparent reason.

Take 2

Gonna try 2 P. chordatus slings this time.

Yikes. Eh, slings die like that sometimes. Heck, I recently had 2 of my 7 H. mac slings die for no apparent reason. Saw them eat 5 days before and BOOM dead.

I don't like caring for small slings that much, why not try getting a smaller juvenile? 1.5-2"?

Thanks.

I had no luck getting the T. gigas to eat. I think he might have been overstressed from the trip here.

That really stinks :( When I was researching into getting T. gigas, I had read that the slings can be fragile. I got three due to that, but none have had issues so far.
