mine was the same..it molted a few times then stopped eating and died though
I know there are probably many threads about this topic but, I would like to start a more current one.
My first tarantula was: Avicularia Avicularia (Adult Female) 1996
What was yours?
Mine was a tiny B. vagans sling that came free with the purchase of an M. martensii scorpion back in mid-November 2006 at a local reptile show. That got the bug started and I'm now up to 21
Mine was of course a rosea
-T's are the new black
-Mario is subtle communist propaganda...
-My avatar is Scolopendra hardwicki
Mine was a 7 in blondi I took in on a trade. WC and never got it through the molt.
Mexican Redknee (Brachypelma smithi).
I've had him for about 6 weeks now and am enjoying his company very much
Mine was a Christmas gift from my hubby Wolfy...A.avic who has blessed us with 2 eggsacs

My first was also B. smithi. I got her for 70 dollars as a juvenile and over a year later she turned out to be a female and shes about 6" now . When i first got her she was very calm and docile, and as she grew older she got very defensive, which is odd for a B. smithi, but i compare her in personality to some of my more mild P. murinus. This just shows, its not the species, its the spider .
B Albopilosum what a fun spider. when i first got it its abdomen was almost completely bald. it has since molted and is a beautiful spider. thanks to the reptist. is it common for avic avics to not eat then die a few months after purchase? i just got one 2 weeks ago and i can't get it to eat. i would hate to have to bury it within a couple months. i know this isn't the best thread to ask this in but hey. pm me or respond on my other thread.
H. lividum for me.
My first was a gift from someone on the board. It was a PZB. Thanks again for introducing me to this wonderful addiction!
My first tarantula was Avicularia Avicularia Female 2004.
And she is around 7 years old.
If you pull my string I spin a web.But if you pull my string and you make me mad I will bite you and eat you alive........
A Pinktoe Tarantula (Avicularia avicularia) way back in mid 80s and had an Emperor Scorpion about that time too. The latter totally freaked me out, exciting as I had just introduced myself to the hobby and as far as scorpions went just about the only thing I really was aware were Desert Hairy Scorpions in the Arizona deserts. And Emps and Asian Forest scorps weren't that common yet.
