  1. Brachypelma albopilosum

    My gbb won't come out of its burrow.

    I have this gbb for about 3 months now, and it won't come out of that dumbass skull i bought her. She looks like in premolt and she doesn't eat anymore, but it's been 3 months now. Shouldn't she have molted already?

    GBB Sling staying on walls

    So we got a new GBB sling in September and we've notice that while she's webbed everything up quite well and she'll go down to catch prey she always sticks to the sides and doesn't go elsewhere. She will bring her prey up and eat on the side she just doesn't seem to want to stay down. We've...

    Gbb enclosure

    So I'm planning on buying a gbb, and I'm already making a enclosure. So I'm looking for some information about the gbb and especially the enclosure. I want to know exactly everything it needs, think of depth of substrate, does it need a burrow. I've read it needs bone dry substrate, but still 60...

    Still kind of shy after the molt. Thinking of feeding on Wednesday (it's fangs look black, but i want to make sure they are hard enough).

    I suspect my GBB has been infested with mold. PLEASE HELP

    My year and a half or so old Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens has been doing quite fine for awhile but 3 or 4 days ago I found mold in it's enclosure. I made a stupid decision by putting small wooden statues in the new home I gave it 2 months ago. The mold appeared on both small statues. I...

    Hello! New to the message board...

    Hello everyone! I'm new to the board. I have a GBB tarantula. I got it from Fear Not Tarantulas.com a little over a month ago, and it just molted last week! It's about 1.5" now. This if my first T in quite some time. I had a Pink-Toed about 20+ years ago, and I had a Carolina Wolf spider...

    Refusing food.

    I am going into week three (this weekend)of my GBB not taking crickets. I put one in and she runs the other direction. At first I felt she hadn't noticed it, but now I am thinking she is ignoring it by going the other direction purpose. I will try again this weekend but she does not seem amused...

    My T is teaching me patience.

    I am a person with anxiety issues. So, I always panic and I am impatient with a lot of things. I always assume the worst. It's a flaw I know. I try to work on it. Since getting my GBB she has taught me- to just chill out. It's all good. I have to keep reminding myself. Latest example- I went to...

    GBB Using water bowl as garbage can.

    I have had my GBB for about a month now. I find it amusing that after I feed her a cricket I find the crumpled up body her water bowl the next day. It's the furthest point from where she likes to eat and hang out. Does anyone else have a T with a habit like this? I am happy- makes clean up easy! ha.
