Nice pics!
Be aware though that feeding too often can lead to a long period of not eating at all until after the next moult, the appropriate way to deal with these non-eating periods is to buy another tarantula! :)

I know I probably shouldn't pick favorites, but she has definitely been a more enjoyable T to care for and feed than my Avicularia avicularia. Also my Brachypelma albopilosum sling (1/2" leg span) died a couple days ago. :(

Unfortunately sometimes it's just one of those things, they are not all destined to survive to adulthood else we'd be knee deep in tarantulas.

She is only a little over 2". Also, my parents would never let me breed them in my childhood. (I will once I have my own house and job).

Hi guys! She has been eating much less than she did before, as Dave said. Here I am thinking she is in pre-molt, but then I drop the cricket in. She starts inching away from it, and then BAM! She lunges forward and grabs it. How I wish I recorded that.

I asked the seller at the reptile show if there were any "nicer" old worlds. He was comparing all of the old worlds to an OBT the whole time. Towards the end of our conversation he showed me how quickly a C. darlingi would get into defensive posture. He poked it a few times before it did. I ended up bringing her home obviously.

Edit: Ceratogyrus darlingi are also calmer than other baboon species. They are still highly capable of delivering a bite though!
