Crawshayi are always worth the trouble ;). Just treat them with respect.

I personally love them, yes they burrow alot and tend to stay down there but they eat like pigs and get huge!@ I just like them in general. That was one of the first Ts I got and much like you there was a shop with a killer deal I think I paid 5 bucks for a 2". So I say go for it. There is something to be learned from every T you own.

Id say about as slow as G Rosea. I kept mine in a jar till he out grew it. But he made elaborate tunnels and webbed tons. But at 2" he took something like 7 months to molt once....... thats slow in my book. And when he did molt he almost doubled in size but then proceeded to skip 11 months before his next molt.

My King is about 3 years old and about 3.5 inches , he is well worth the wait when pops out to say hello !





Out of my Lairy T's - Blondis, Murinus, Lividum, he is by far the most amusing when he loses it!
Yes a great addition to anyones collection IMO.

:D
