Thank You for All the compliments..

Dumb question? How old do they have to be before breeding? Considering looking for a male..

Gorgeous. We have one arriving soon..Tomorrow I think. There were two T's that my wife wanted, a GBB. (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens.) which she now has. And a Grammostola pulchra. She saw The Spider Shop had listed their disposition as Guinea Pigs & after a little reading up about them decided we just had to have one of those too.

In general they are very calm and lovely Ts but be aware it isn't unheard of for one to be defensive. All Ts can have mood swings :D

they are one of the larger species topping out at 8+ inches. I wouldn't attempt breeding with a female unless she is at least 6 inches. the males can actually survive for up to 2 years on the final mature moult.

Just to add to what Phil said...younger females sometimes still see everything as food. I've lost a couple males recently trying to push the breeding process.

Wow!! Amazing!!

Just thought of something, what about an entire shelf devoted to all black tarantulas?
