    Lasiodora Parahybana - Brazilian Salmon Pink.

    It's hilarious to watch them eat, they are such PIGS. They will eat again right after spitting out what's left of their previous meal..

    ok how the hell do you "sex" a spider? and what do you feed them?

    There are several ways.. I'm too lazy to explain it lol Some can be sexed just by looking them over, some are harder and you have to look at the inside of their molts (Shed exoskeleton)
    Sexing | Tarantula Husbandry | TARANTULAS.com

    Roaches (like dubia roaches), crickets, mealworms... pretty much any captive bred bug is fine for a tarantula. Some people feed their large species mammals/vertebrates - not for me - like mice, small lizards, frogs, birds, even snakes. That gets very controversial with tarantula people, many do not like the idea of feeding something like that to a Tarantula for moral reasons, others because those animals are less healthy (supposedly) and dangerous for the T.

    My babies are so tiny all they can handle are very, very young crickets, flightless fruit flies, things like that..

    Cool. But spiders scare the you know what out of me. I will keep an eye on this post as therapy...those are the CUTEST spiders I've ever seen.

    Two of them molted today/last night, and doubled in size.. Unfortunately the smallest passed away. I am pretty sure it's because he somehow climbed to the top of his jar and fell back down. He was, oddly, the only one without a name.

    I'll get some pics of the freshly molted babies up soon.

    Here we go.. Miranda, so far my favorite, she is bolder than the rest and stays out the most, she was the first to molt.

    These boogers are growing like weeds.. They've all molted now, and they eat nonstop. I'm sure they'd actually eat until they exploded if I let them.

    I feed them mostly gut-loaded crickets right now. I give each a pre-killed cricket larger than they are every few days and they are doing very well..
