    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...

    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...

    How old is my tarantula?

    I recently got my first tarantula in April this year at an expo and completely forgot to ask the vendor how old it was. My t is a Curly hair, Brachypelma Albopilosum (Idk if it’s Nicaragua or Honduran if that matters) and it’s about 2 inches from end to end. It hasn’t molted either and I think...
