Hiya, I've recently bought a pinktoe, it's my first one. It's only a little one yet but it seems to have made a web in the corner of its tank and blocked itself in. It's not eaten for a few days as there are still crickets in the tank and it's not come out for a wonder, like it usually does. Could you let me know if this is normal or if there is something wrong. Also, when does it molt and how many times a week should I feed it. thankyou very much!!

I Am 12yrs old and I Wwnt a pink toed tarantula very much but my mom doesn't want me to have 1. I have wanted 1 for awhile now, they seem very interesting and fun to have (even tho they are not really the kind of pet to play around with a lot).

I absolutely love the Avicularia genus and am planning on getting about 15 Avic slings (spiderlings) pretty soon. Even non-tarantula lovers would be charmed by a a sling of this genus! I love raising any T from a sling, as you get to observe the different changes of coloration they go through! Very excited, I can't wait unitl I get my shipment!

I got a Pink toe about 4 Weeks ago, she is massive, she loves her tank, She loves building webs. I have to open the slide door, she has the entire ceiling webbed, she is now working building a web in the lower corner of her tree. After a few days I grew concerned. I had no idea where she was in the tank, until I peeled the plant gently away from the corner. To my surprise it lifted the whole substrate, slowly, and there she was, cowering away in the corner. She had moulted. I was surprised because I could not find her Exo skeleton, which I then found hanging in a web on the tree. She looks big cowering, I can't wait until her new Exo-Skeleton hardens and I can see how big she has grown or if she had changed colour :D

Hello, I have recently purchased a Pink toe tarantula. I am alittle nervous to hold
her(?). I have not been able to figure out if it is a male or female. I was wondering how long it takes for them to settle into there new habitat and if low activity is normal. Any information on this will be greatly appreciated.
