Always love when it’s so easy to identify a female. It’s never that simple when I try it lol
I am not the best at it but my partner has kept t's for 30+ years so he checks for me after I say what I think it is, its a slow process but I am getting better at it 😆

Dolichothele rufoniger sling, Gemini, just finished it's 3rd molt with me in as many months. Curious to see how much size it gained, pip squeak!

Martha Stewart, my little gbb is in the process right now.

I saw this morning when I was watering that she had vaguely sealed her little funnel off with a thin layer of web over the entrance, so knew it was coming. But she also just ate a few days ago and it was open yesterday so I was surprised to see it already, I figured maybe next


Hopefully I can update this with a fresh and shiny pic in the morning.

Best name ever for a gbb 🤣🤣🤣

And another: T albo, gaining a nice bit of size.

Tried sexing - still a little small to be completely sure but I am thinking male.

That's 6 Ts moulted this week! Must be the hot weather...

My GBB sling molted yesterday, 3 days after my T. albo molted! The two were fairly dissimilar! The Albo spun a thin faint mat underground and still hasn’t resurfaced! The GBB molted out in the open after weaving a pretty thick heavy hammock type matt tilted in the corner of the enclosure! A lot of people have told me their GBB slings had a tendency to burrow but mine has webbed up the top of the enclosure and has chilled up there the entire time I’ve had it! Can’t want to how much they’ve grown! Not a great pic!

Thank you! It was between that and, after our initial introduction which turned into a like 10+ minute game of cat and mouse that finally ended with a little ~1" sling threat posing at me, Lionheart.

But, she calmed down really fast and is now by far the most docile/calm of my slings. And I haven't seen her on the ground since the first week, always in her ever growing web canopy that now spans half of the enclosure.

So the original plan of Martha Stewart stuck, even if she turns out to be a male.

My ggb Bauble is the same she never touched the sub in her sling enclosure just built a web castle, I recently rehoused her as she hit 2 inches and she's made a web tunnel this time it does touch the floor but it has a web carpet to stop her feet getting dirty 🤣🤣🤣 gotta love a gbb 😊

This morning "Beatbox" molted for the first time in my ownership - surprising as I didn't think was in Premolt, It ate the other day and was rehoused on Thursday last week. Had been on display a bit less than normal since then but I figured it was just settling into a new enclosure

All good though !!

Not the best pic but my Tliltocatl albopilosus Nicaraguan sling Philip J Fry moulted yesterday. Suspect female but won't know this moult as the moult is deep in the burrow with fry n being chewed as I write this.
