I've had my b. Hamorii since it was a smithi so maybe 3 years? Honestly I was terrified of spiders, let alone TARANTULAS but he was a rescue and i do that with lots of animals. It's been a lot of YouTube and looking at forums like this so I'm glad to finally be a part of this community! It was a confirmed male from the breeder but I'm not sure. I'm still confused about telling from a molt. He's about 4 inches, no hooks and has molted twice since I've had him. This past year he didn't eat for literally 11 months, then molted. And he hasn't eaten again in about 4 months. Is this normal lol? Also he never uses the hide or burrows unless it's cold and is always climbing the enclosure. It's all coconut fiber with eco earth I believe. I feed dubia roaches and the house is always 65°+. I think he needs a bigger enclosure too.
