    hello!! i haven't posted in a while!!! but i'm thinking that sir legsalot might be due for a new home. i attached a recent picture of him munching on a cricket, he's grown quite a bit! i'm wondering when/if i should re-home him, and also when/if/how to change the substrate so that it's fresh for him. any good resources/guides someone could share with me? thanks all!!

    :)

    also, for the last week or two he's been piling all the substrate into the center of his little cup, which makes me wonder if he's stressed out? what can i do to make him more happy? i want to be the best tarantula mom i can be!

    welcome back! :) what size is he now? I always rehouse them into something with a width at least twice their leg span, 3 times the span if possible. That way they have plenty of room to grow before you have to rehouse them again.
