Ok guys, I've finally got some pics posted of a few of my critters. The picture of my G. Rosea isn't that great, but it's only my second time to use a digital camera. Hope to have some more of my collection posted soon. From first to last:

Jasmin - 5" female B. Smithi
Rosie - 4.5" female G. Rosea
Kira - 6" female A. Genic

Thanks. I can't wait till I can post a pic of my L. Parahybana. Right now she is in pre-molt and hidden in her hide. As soon as she's done, I'll post a pic of her, along with the rest of my collection.

Yes they are, In addition to the big female I have 2 small slings and had mature male out on breeding lone, he mated with one female then got smoked by the second, so hopefully I will have a bunch of em if all goes well, one of my favourite spiders..

Thanks Becca. I actually used my mom's camera cuz I still haven't acquired one of my own. It is an Olympus Camedia with 3.2 megapixel. The first and last pic actually turned out pretty good to my amazement.

As you mentioned, Giant Striped Knee is a pretty common name as well, along with Brazilian Black and White.

No, it's actually the normal brownish color. I didn't have enough light when I took that picture, or I didn't adjust the camera the right way. She's munching on some crickets in that pic.
