    US aphonopelma chalcodes sling, 1in and 1/4

    Ugh I hate to do this but I have to rehome my tarantulas. Please don’t ask why, I do not wish to dive into my personal life. My larger one is about an inch unsexed and is very calm. The new sling is about 1/4. I have two enclosures, one larger one and one smaller. The smaller sling is in a vile...

    GBB sling webbing

    Hi everyone! I just wanna share my GBB sling enclosure :D She's been living here for 2 months now and I'm amazed at how much webbing GBBs can do even as a small sling(she's just around 1.75"). I'm soo glad I made the decision to get Ts as pets 4 months ago as they are really great for releiving...

    My LP sling is missing a leg :(

    Hi guys, when I woke up this morning, I noticed that my LP sling(around 1.5") is missing 1 front leg. I am new to the hobby and I don't know why or how that happened and I cannot find her leg :(.. She is currently in her temporary enclosure(pics below) and I plan to move her to a bigger acrylic...

    Is my B.Auratum sling ok?

    Hi guys. I am just new to the hobby. I got my first T last July which is a GBB sling. Today I got 2 new slings (B.Auratum and LP both 1.5") and I am a bit worried about my Auratum. She seems weak because when I transfered her to her enclosure, its like she doesn't want to move . I tried to push...

    C. versicolor Sling enclosure help

    Hey fellow Tarantula keepers, recently I got my first aboreal T as a sling. I'm keeping 2 terrestial T's currently (1 B. hamorii (ex. smithi) at 6cm length and 1 G. pulchripes that I got as a sling who's grown to 2,5cm) I'm not really sure what enclosure is optimal for a C. versicolor sling...

    Help with my sling!

    Hey y’all! I just got my first sling (an a. Hentzi) and he keeps climbing the walls of his enclosure (even going as far as to climb onto the ceiling!) he is in a very small enclosure - a Jamie’s Tarantula’s sling enclosure, and I have maybe three inches worth of substrate in his tank. He hasn’t...

    Amateur Macro Shots - Acanthoscurria geniculata slings

    Threw the cheap macro lens adaptor on my phone and took a few photos of my whiteknee slings. Quite a short focal range on it. Planning to do some focus stacking in the future to try and capture all of the deltails. Need to invest in a macro lens for my DSLR now that I have something tiny to...

    Acanthoscurria geniculata slings in their new pots

    Just transferred my Whiteknee slings to a new pot (bit early but wanted to see them clearer without disturbing them) and thought I'd take a couple shots. They're invert viewing pots, so have a magnifying lid, which is quite nice for seeing all their little details. They're out of direct light...

    Too young?

    How old do they have to be? I have a GBB sling that’s about 1/2” and a good under belly shot. I attached the photo just in case. I also suck at sexing.

    Is this a pamphobeteus sp flammifera sling?

    A friend sent me a picture from a small mom and pop pet shop saying that they were not sure even what to put it as or how to price it. They have it labeled as a pamphobeteus sp flammifera but the slings that I see online look like they have darker legs and the pattern looks just a tad different...

    How to spot an escape artist in the making.

    My S. Cal, Telle, caught in the act of testing her enclosure borders. I think it's a female because her growth is significantly slower than most her age. So my conclusion is either she's an escape artist in the making, a velociraptor in a spider's costume, or a reincarnated security guard...
