    Hi Everyone!

    Haven't been active in quite some time, just been occasionally lurking and appreciating all your wonderful arachnids.

    Unfortunately, my beautiful girl Cirilla passed away after not webbing or being active for a few months. You can only do so much to make a venomous spider eat compared to a reptile:(

    About 6 months ago I got a Brazilian Black sling who was a little smaller than a dime! Shes absolutely gorgeous and I named her Praelia. She just molted into her first true black stage, at around a half dollar legspan, so I'm super excited to watch her grow and handle a less venomous tarantula!

    Happy to be back,
    Luna.

    They look stunning & the size of adults is impressive.

    You gotta watch those Brazillian Blacks. They're violent and angry and they bite white people.:T::mad:

    A sad attempt at humor. Negative stereotypes are never funny... Anyway, love my Brazilian Black sling; Black is beautiful, baby!

    Neither are sjw's. If they were funny they might not be reviled by honest folks quite so much. Some black is beautiful. Some of it needs to be whited out.
