    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...

    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...

    HELP?! I dropped her.

    So I literally just got a Tucson Blonde Tarantula yesterday. I was told she's about 10 years old, and I would say she's around 3-3'1/2 inches. I had her out on my hand when I was switching her to her new tank and she ran off my hand. She fell about 6-12inches I think. And she landed with her...

    Should I be worried?

    I have a 6 year old Chilean Rose Hair named Elise. I'm a textbook overthinker so I may be worried for nothing but I'd like another opinion.

    Pinktoe Tarantula Enclosure Advice Needed.

    So I just got a pinktoe tarantula, and I've heard that the fact sheets online can't be trusted. I know it's arboreal, and I've got a good cage, but I'm not quite sure how hot or humid it should be in there. I've just been spraying anyway. Any advice? Thanks!
