    Too much decoration?

    Hi all, I got a bit concerned when my G. pulchra disappeared into a hiding spot shortly after being rehomed into what I’ll admit is too big of an enclosure. However, she (unsexed but ) has recently reappeared, freshly molted and looking beautiful. She’s drinking from her new bowl and has eaten...

    Today has been the 3rd week that my T skipped feeding. She hasn't eaten anything yet and Im assuming its Pre-molt behavior. I googled How long they can last without eating and it said 3 months, So I shouldn't worry much. She did spun a bit of web but its nothing crazy she moves around here and...

    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?

    Is this okay??

    Hey guys, I just got a new pink toe a couple days ago. I just noticed the T to be curling up one leg like a death curl but no other legs do this. When I lift the lid the T goes back into a normal stance. Is it just chilling like that or should I be worried? It hasn’t eaten yet but im guessing...

    Feedback on a loss in my collection.

    I’m looking for help or feedback on my care and husbandry. I came home last night and went through my normal routine of checking on my slings to find my cyriocosmus leetzi wasn’t moving. It molted at the beginning of the month (the 4th I believe) and hasn’t eaten since. I found it sitting in...

    Old-world not eating

    On either the 15th or the 16th of December, I got a few more Ts to add to my collection, and one of them happened to be my first old-world, a female Cameroon Rust Baboon (Hysterocrates gigas). Evidently I'm aware of how aggressive and stubborn they are, as well as how reclusive their nature is...

    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...
