Just got my first sling (Green Bottle Blue) and wanted to post up a pic of its first meal at its new home! It is my first T and I am very excited to watch it grow! 20170421_182545.jpg

Thanks! It sure was hard trying to figure out which one I wanted to get first. I am glad I settled on this one and can't wait for it to web up the enclosure. It started a little bit but took a break to eat :)

I am also in the same boat, guys. Got three slings (1GBB!), love em and have a list of must haves for future reference, hahha. My GBB had his first meal in my care yesterday. What size is yours? Mine is 1". His butt was small before, haha, id take a pic but I just rehoused him because the enclosure he came with was too big and had bad ventilation.

Great first T. Good choice. See a lot of people going Grammostola or Brachypelma sp. The GBB is and has always been one of my faves. Enjoy!

GBB is one of my favs, and I think for most people as well, great choice on your first T.

Thanks ! I struggled on which one I wanted first but after seeing some pictures of the adult GBBs I was convinced.

Thanks! I was tempted to get the G. Pulchra or B. smithi as my first, but the GBB just looked so awesome.

Mine is about 1'' I'd guess. It sucked a mealworm dry and now it has a nice and plump rump ;) It seems pretty happy so far.. has webbed up a bit and made itself a little corner of web to chill in. I got a little skull to put in the enclosure hopefully it webs it up :D

Since no one can resist the temptation of a second or third tarantula, you should keep them on your list. :clown:
