    I'm selling some lp's, and the guy purchasing them wants me to drop them off.. He works until 6 and I live 30 minutes from him. It's supposed to be 26 degrees Celsius tomorrow and I don't want them to cook in the vehicle. How can I avoid any unwanted deaths? How long would they last in the car...

    i have a mm avic avic and he's always been able to climb around today.. But today he can't, he's just been hanging around the bottom. He tries to climb but just can't seem to. Is this maybe the end for him?

    I have someone wanting some of my tarantulas but the labels somehow got mixed up. I need to tell the difference between a Eupalaestrus Campestratus and a brachypelma smithi. Both are 1/4 inch ... There really isn't much difference between them. One just has more black on the abdomen

    what is a male avic avic lifespan? And how long do they take to reach adult size? I'm trying to figure out the age of the avic I bought last month. He's been hanging around the bottom of the enclosure lately not wanting to climb or web much. He is a confirmed male and is about 4" I'm wondering...

    Just a thought

    just wanted to say, don't always listen to the pet store workers.. There are some very knowledgeable ones but also some terrible ones. I got an avicularia avicularia from a local pet store. Personally I would say I rescued it but I'll let others judge that. He's a good 3 1/2-4" male, and they...

    how do you rehouse a very defensive t? Both my lp's go into threat posture as soon as I even lift the container.. I don't wanna run to rehouse them and have them escape or bite(not sure which would be worse). Also how do you rehouse ones with burrows? My b. Albopolosum has a really deep tunnel...

    Too much???

    My brachypelma smithi and albopolosum both molted twice this month... Is this healthy? I went from a 1/4" albopolosum to 3/4" and 1/6" smithi to a 1/2".... I just don't want them to get too stressed or anything. My albopolosum is a little more moody than before but they both seem healthy

    so excited

    i woke up and checked my t's like i always do but all i could see of my g. rosea was it's legs in the air, i thought maybe it had passed through the night because i haven't seen it in almost 2 weeks so i couldn't tell if there were any pre molt signs... it molted throught the night, i'm just...

    brachypelma albopolosum

    I had an albopolosum sling in the past and it loved to tunnel...it'd spend days or weeks in it's tunnel. I got a new albopolosum sling and it refuses to come off the side ofits eenclosure. ..do they usually spend all their time climbing or is it more normal for them to burrow???

    new tarantula

    So I have a chance to get one new tarantula. ...I want a heavy webber because i think their webbing is absolutely amazing but all the ones I've read about are either really fast or aggressive. I've never had an arborial before so I have no idea about their care. Any suggestions??
