    US Collection Downsize

    I'll PM you but can you send me photos of the I.Mira and also how did you confirm female? (maybe other members would like to see photos too) Also are you in L.A. or S.D. or another county? Zip code?

    Tattoo Ink Cups for water dishes

    Curious, I only have slings to pre-adult, are the large caps big enough for adult Ts? They seem big enough but I'm not sure.

    US Slings & Enclosures

    While adding to my collection sometimes you have to buy a few more to get a good deal. I'm no dealer or breeder, but I am honest. Already sold a bunch for local pick up, and happy to see that most of them were newbies and/or left the hobby and came back. So that made the resell even more...

    Tattoo Ink Cups for water dishes

    I thought I was the genius, just like everyone else that stumbled upon using tattoo ink cups as sling / juveniles water dishes. There's a lot of messages to post on the use, but I feel that there's needs to be a post announcing this great idea that should be common practice. The cups are so...

    US aphonopelma chalcodes sling, 1in and 1/4

    Hey members, looks like @Barrenlandss really wants a good home for his Ts. Let's support him with a fair rehoming fee and also have fun with him finding the right home by giving him a "selling point on why you?" I'll start. Hi my name is Tim, my son and I got into this hobby only two years ago...

    Issues with raising Slings

    Sorry, I meant can you freeze them for a week? A month? Then use them as feed still?

    Issues with raising Slings

    How long can you freeze mealworms? I read the freezing is just to slow them down, not for long period and then use?

    Issues with raising Slings

    I'm curious to learn your gripes about hatching and then raising slings. I've seen photos of people's setup with hundreds of vials. I can guess opening each one, feeding, misting, etc each day? I think there's a certain therapeutic joy from hours of giving the newborn Ts a parental attention...

    Four escapees

    Sorry did I miss the type of T slings? That might help narrow the search area, and suggestions (but I'm sure you know that already). For slings, I would always recommend pin holes in serving cups until they get bigger (for the future). Live and learn. Keep looking, I recently lost a...

    new tarantula mom here!!!

    Definitely, not every day but maybe once a week depending what the T can eat in one day. And at most I think twice a week.

    Proud to show-off our Vivarium

    Added a another 1.5" to the enclosure to give them more room to burrow, also added some wood chips for furniture. Thank you for sharing, Tim & sons.

    Proud to show-off our Vivarium

    What do you think? Any suggestions for improvement? My son and I just got into the hobby, and started to bond more during COVID. We're happy to add two new slings, our Cameroon Red Baboon (Hysterocrates Gigas) and Antilles Pinktoe (Caribena Versicolor). Two Styles of Enclosures We hand...

    Hobbyist made Enclosures

    Pretty close - just glad we can have something to do with our hands (that's not connected to electronics). Hope people like our enclosures.

    Hobbyist made Enclosures

    Thank you for the reply, I'll work on making better enclosures. I currently mist once a week to keep substrate moist and provide adequate water. I read that slings might drown so avoided adding a bottle cap. But seems like so far I might be wrong, and will add a water dish.
