I just got my Usambara S'ling yesterday from Swifty. I put it into a 2.5 oz deli cup. Well it didn't take long for this baby to get some good web action going. Actually, I checked this morning, and there wasn't any. This is just a few hours work!

Even that little tiny baby creates more webbing than my juvenile which is way bigger than that. It isnt fair I want mine to be webby.

It's kind of fast. Well, its like that it will just take off. But I haven't had any trouble controlling it though. My new Haplopelma sling on the other hand is like grease lightning. It is even faster than my P. cambridgi.

My BF has a Usambara sling. I was trying to feed it shortly after we got it and it made a mad dash out of the dish and up my arm. It crawled all over my arm for around 2 minutes, while I tried to stay calm and coax it back to his home. That's the first time I held a T. He was around an inch or a little under. I leave feeding that one to my BF now.
