    Chaco golden knee adult still not sure of sex

    Hi! I’ve had a beautiful Chaco for over 6 years. Want to assume it’s female because of age but discovered male Chacos can live to ten. Males and females look so similar too. I have an old molt, about 2 years or so and still uncertain. Can anyone read this better than I? It’s driving me mad!

    Cor's Collection

    Here's the kids, updated as new ones arrive. The starter set: Ayla was the first tarantula that I got. She's (they're all going to be referred to as she even if they aren't) a Tililtocatl albopilosus. Her name was briefly Pewbs because I thought it was pretty funny. I still think it's...

    MM G. pulchripes

    Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the hobby and have a mature male G. pulchripes that was sold to me as female, but his last molt was yesterday. I don't want to watch him waste away this next year, so I was wondering if anyone has a mature female Chaco and would be willing to take him.

    Chaco Golden Knee Sling

    I recently got a chaco golden knee sling in the mail. I did a bit of research about slings here and there specifically for the Gold Knee. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for the caring of a sling. My main concern is feeding, I bought 1/4 small crickets for it I just wonder if the...

    Worried About My Tarantula

    Hey, so I'm a new owner of a Chaco Golden Knee, Goldie, who I've had for about a month now. Since I'm new to tarantula keeping, I may say some wrong things and I apologize. The problem I have is that we have a small piece of bark, maybe about 3x4 inches, with a small hole on top. About 2 weeks...
