My tiny LP sling

Just got this little fellow as a freebie on an order from PNW but it seemed unreasonable to put it in an Amac container (behind the vial) that would be 100x the sling, so it went into the next size vial than it came in with substrate and moss.

What do y'all think of this for-now setup?

The little guy will be fine in there. They are great feisty tarantulas. I didn't think too much of mine at first I'll be completely honest but it's is proving me wrong now and beginning to show a spark of living up to the Lasiodora name.

Put the tiniest albit injured pinhead B. lat in with the LP today, it got it no problem.

Hard to grab the 1mm nymphs and not semi-smush them lol

Awesome! I honestly think LPs are the most underrated tarantula in the hobby. It’s not a brightly colored old world fossorial? Oh no! It only eats like a champ and grows to a ridiculous size before you know it. And they’re cheap to boot. Color me jealous of your little girl!

Tiny LP molted for the first time in our care, as far as I know

I was going to feed it today, and I thought it's legs were on the glass but then I saw the T in the burrow. Fished out this tiny exo.

Will wait a few days to feed

Fed our LP for the second time today after molting

Crippled roach nymph was snatched by the T before I put the lid on the vial. Guess it was hungry lol
