    Need any and all info on these please.
    know they are smaller, considered dwarf species (3.5-4")
    Good growth rate,(medium to fast)
    supposedly laid back, threat posture like a Thrixopelma (abdomen up)
    but unfortunately not much else, anyone have them or had them?

    They aren't hard at all to care. I've never owned one but there's an Italian keeper with a couple. As babies they are very little (ah ah go figure, they are "little" as adults) the ones he have tend to web... they are a bit on the speedy side but temperament in general is benign :)

    I would keep them as slings with slightly moist substrate.

    There's next to no info on these, my son was looking at getting one and all we've found so far is they're obligate burrowers you'll rarely see, laid back/defensive, moist substrate and overflow the water dish every so often. But like most burrow lovers if you give them less sub and a hide they probably won't burrow as much and can be seen more when older.

    yeah got a couple responses on AB for this same question. Wasn't much info on my T ockerti either though ,
    for a hundred and fifty dollars though I think I may hold off on this one.
