    Pink Toe Feeding Question

    I've had a pink toe tarantula for almost 6 months now, and the only way he will eat is if his worm is placed in his web. He molted a couple weeks ago, and I had to clean out his web because he got too big for it. He hasn't started building a new web, and also won't eat. I've tried putting his...

    G pulchripes size?

    Most online sources purport that they can get up to 7-8 inches, sometimes even 9. I’m assuming this is measuring leg span end to end. Is that true? It seems gigantic and I don’t think I’ve ever seen one that large in a video or photo.

    Why are many keepers so staunchly against hybrids?

    I am not here to defend it, because frankly I don't know enough about it to have an opinion on the matter. I'm just genuinely curious about the issues with it.

    Recent tarantula owner, should i be worried or overthinking?

    After a bit of contemplation, my anxiety got the best of me and I wanted to make a post to look for help. 2 days ago I finally got my first tarantula; she’s a Tliltocatl albopilosus.

    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...
