    Hi! I just picked up a lasiodora parahybana sling last weekend and I'm so excited to see it grow into a big and beautiful guy/girl! I've raised a variety of critters, but it's been a long time since I've had a tarantula. I'll be doing plenty of reading and learning about what's best for it. 20181001_101800.jpg

    Hi, welcome to TF lizzy..not to be critical, but don't go to crazy with the spray bottle. The enclosure looks a bit wet, and the sling looks to be sticking to the less wet side..

    Thanks. I actually just moved him to a 5 gallon enclosure and I'm only misting one end of it. I appreciate any advise.

    It won't stay little for long. There are many excellent Lasiodora species.
