    What species is my leggy friend?

    Hi, I'm a relatively new T hobbyist. I've owned one B. Hamorii for a very short time before it ended up dying. I was a mess afterwards and my boyfriend decided to surprise me with what he thought was another B. Hamorii. It's been a few months since then, it molted twice and it became clear (as...

    Any Ideas What Kind of Spider This Is?

    Hello all! A friend of mine sent me a picture of a spider she found in her home and was curious what it was! Thought it might be cool to see the speculation of those who know much more than I do! Any ideas? We live in coastal VA by the way.

The other was that they "didnt know it was going to be mean". They gave it to me for free to get it out of the store. They labeled it a...
