I hate to be "that guy" but i just received a sling of this sp, and can not find any concrete info on it.
Allegedly this came from the 1st US produced sack and this sp is uncommon in the US right now?

Any Thrixopelma knowitalls out there got any info? Itd be greatly appreciated

I picked up 4 myself, not a lot of info out there on them. I believe that they were from an imported female that laid a sac so some will say not US produced due to they were not paired by a keeper living here. Captive born rather than captive bred.

I'd keep them like a normal terrestrial Thrixopelma and then see if they start to display arboreal tendencies as they grow like T. ockerti.
