Nice!!!..LP can possibly make it to 10.5, I think the biggest Pulchripes recorded was a 8 inch female....Either way those are some monster numbers..

In theory...But I have yet to see an "official" 10" female, let alone more than that...

Wouldn't be surprised to see a 10 inch Lasiodora Parahybana someday, perhaps yours is close?! They look very nice! My L. para is only 6.5" ish, so I hope to get her up there to 8" or 9" someday! Very nice buys, biggins usually cost a pretty penny.

Diagonal leg span looks to be a solid 7+ inches. Still nothing to sneeze at. Congrats on your new Ts. Good $, too.

Nice T's mate, I wish mine would get a bit bigger, hasn't molted for ages and it's only like 2 inches (the whole spider, not legs) and it is still eating and drinking well which is good :)

Anyway on-topic; Nice pictures you got of 'em :D! Looking pretty beast at the moment aha, maybe they'll get bigger like you hope them to, Buy a decent tank for them to live in with whatever is best for them :)

~thanks

Got myself a similar deal 2 years ago, 7" LP and a 5" B.smithi, with glass tanks, for 35$ ;) This guy just didn't want em anymore and posted them for 80$. finally let em off for 35 when I said I wasn't sure about the LP. Anyways it was a great deal and you just scored one too ;) congrats!

"Rescuing" a tarantula refers to buying it from somewhere (usually a local pet store) that keeps it in less-than-ideal conditions for the purpose of giving it a good home with proper care. Hence the term "rescue".
