    How did you get into the hobby?

    I stumbled across a Youtube video about tarantulas. I think it was a clip from Nat Geo or some other kind of nature show. Anyway after watching that one video Youtube started suggesting others. I watched a few Dark Den videos and became completely fascinated with them. In less than a year...

    Comment by 'Matthew' in media 'B. auratum'

    OK. I attached the wrong picture. This isn't my auratum it is my boehmei. Can't figure out how to edit the title or delete it.

    B. auratum

    I know Brachys are slow growers but experiencing it really drives the point home. Still as small as she is I am thankful for the bit of size she has put on. She was scary tiny when I got her.

    T. albopilosus 2.5 in juvie male or female?

    This is as magnified And as clear as I could get the photo. I want to say female but in my inexperience I’m just not sure. I’m interested in what others think. I’m zoomed in quite a bit so the orientation is between the anterior book lungs. Carapace is north off the top of the photo...

    When does a Vagans carapace darken?

    I have what was bought as B. vagans at the time, Aug 2019, now a T. vagans. It was a small sling, maybe under a half inch. So now he is just over a year old and his carapace hasn’t darkened yet.

    A female... maybe????

    It is the inside. I feel fairly sure because when I was working with the molt and taking the photos the book lungs were clearly exposed. This is a slightly zoomed out version.

    A female... maybe????

    This is a mainly of a very young GBB. After emerging from this exoskeleton it just started to show hints of blue on the legs. This is as magnified and clear a **** I could get. Am I seeing super tiny spermatheca there?

    Who's molted today

    Another quick and surprise molt. I just tired to feed this little one a couple hours ago and it was throwing up threat postures. Guess this is why.

    Who's molted today

    Bit of a surprise molt from my versicolor. I am about 80+ % sure it’s a male now. I don’t mind males really but I have to say it is a little frustrating to think the first 4 T’s I have purchased over the past few years are all turning out to be male.
