    I have zero knowledge on non tarantulas, but as for all the molts, catching a tarantula molting is neat to see. How big is your GBB, if a small sling, the color change with each molt is unbelievable.

    no idea on that one. they're all new hatchlings, might take a molt or 3 before they can be identified if the markings change. Or hopefully someone has seen them as slings and adults both.

    Where do you live? that will help narrow it down also, I could be looking for a spider in the southwest US and you're in the UK or something.

    They're the same type of spider as the spider in the Charlotte Web book. I can't remember the scientific name tho. Hold on I'll find it with a picture.

    It's called a barn spider, Aranius Cavaticus.

    I only know cuz of one of the true spider guys I follow on YouTube. He bread them and he had a wild caught gravid female and he did an experiment with them, seeing who had the higher mortality rate. And who was the "better" mother. And he documented it via video.
