    Greetings & requesting guidance!

    Hello everyone!! Just about a month and a half ago I got my first tarantula! I don’t believe I’m able to sex it yet, so I’ve decided it’s a girl named Morticia. Anyways she’s a pink toed tarantula and has the cutest little pink toes. Everything has seemed to be going well, but recently she...

    I recently purchased this little pink toe tarantula, and I had no idea the underside of their feets were iridescent! I was just trying to capture her first meal <3

    Little pink toe!

    Howdy! I should have asked the exotic store we got them from, but would y'all be able to determine the sex on this cutie? Could I also get an age estimate on this forum?

    New T owner, scared I’m doing something wrong.

    Hello! I got a pink toe tarantula yesterday. It came home with me in a plastic container, and i set the container in its new enclosure so it could make its way out when it wanted to because i didn’t want to stress it out any more than it already had been. It’s tucked itself in the corner of the...

    Unsexed Avic Avic Pedipalps Turned Grey After Molt...?

    So as a new tarantula hobbyist I purchased my first tarantula, an unsexed Avicularia Avicularia, from a retail pet chain about 6 months ago and we've been doing great!

    Best substrate for arboreal T? (Avicularia Avicularia)

    What’s the best substrate for an Avicularia Avicularia? I’ve used soil that came in a kit when I first got her but I’m moving her to a bigger enclosure and was wondering what I should use? I’ve been reading coconut fiber every where would that be okay?

    PinkToe Pre-Molt? Help

    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...

    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...

    How long does it take for a pinktoe to eat a cricket?

    I am new to owning a tarantula. I have a medium size pinktoe. I bought some small crickets and I put one in the enclosure. Not long after I noticed it had the cricket in it's mouth. About ten minutes later the cricket was gone and I couldn't see it in the enclosure. My question, (I couldn't...

    My first tarantula :)

    No names as of yet but I love the color and the fuzziness. It's only about a year old and very (lightning) fast when ir moves. Hangs on the outside of the tank every time I open the top.

    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!

    What species of Avic is this?

    Hi I bought this (young) spider at a pet store about a month ago. While it clearly seems to be a pink toe, I do not believe that it is an Avicularia Avicularia (as I was told) primarily due to the stripes on its back. (Ref. picture) I did some research and concluded it might be an...
