    A new (and bigger) home for my T. Albo!

    I finally got around to moving Shelob to her new home! I wasn't planning on doing it this soon but the Exo Terra tank I ordered arrived early, plus today I went to a reptile store and found an amazing piece of cork (never thought I'd get excited over a piece of cork lol) and just couldn't wait...

    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...

    Will the burrow collapse?

    Happy New Year! :) As a New Year's resolution, Shelob has apparently decided to remodel her home and has been digging huge pieces of soil out of her tunnel since last night. What concerns me is that there is a small piece of cork holding up the tunnel (it's about as big as she is, maybe a bit...

    Ventral sexing of T. albopilosus

    I've had my T. albopilosus for about a month now, and they rarely come out. I've been waiting patiently for a molt, but I think I'm still going to have to wait quite some time. In the meantime, I finally caught them climbing! I managed to get a really good ventral picture of them. I know...

    Very Concerned about my T. Albo. Wobbly Movements.

    I’m sorry if this post sounds confusing. I’m very worried. A few days ago, I found my tarantula standing on her tip toes- this was a whole day after her second feeding. (she had a small mealworm and a larger dubia roach. Her abdomen got very very skinny after molt and I was worried) Her...

    Curly Hair Behavior - Another New Owner Post

    First off: I’m so sorry about a third ‘new owner post’ ! I’ll try to post a little less but I figure better safe than sorry especially since I tend to be an anxious with a new pet So Saturday, the 25th I decided to try to feed her (my T Albo) again, since the last time she ate was at the hobby...

    What would you consider an adult size?

    So as some know (due to a new owner anxiety post lol) I am a really recent owner to a girl Tliltocatl albopilosus. she doesn’t move much and has refused food for now a week, but i just assumed that’s because she’s still getting used to everything. but i also don’t know if i can rule out pre...

    New at this, need some help!

    Hi! I hope I’m doing this right. Anyway I got a curlyhair tarantula last Sunday (i.e I have it around 6 days now). The person who sold me the T didn’t tell me how old it is, (or the exact species, he just said it’s curlyhair lol so I’m assuming it’s a T. albopilosus??) just that it’s female...
