Have I joined this club yet?

Here is one of my two (Torch). Just molted a few days ago.

Might be a deformed T in terms of sex as the spermathecae don't look male or female. If so I hope it is a deformed FEmale. :)

Oh my word, that red is striking. A hair flicker or laid back?

Very nice MM,and a fitting name. I hear they are pretty flicky in general. Do you find that to be true?

Hi Tg, I see I never answered your question.

I have not found them to be as flicky as I thought they would be. But I generally try to work with them, moving slow and then letting them sit on me for awhile. That seems to calm them down.

My boehmei girl has calmed down as a result too.

Anyway, here is Torch after his recent molt. I slowly nudged him to maneuver him for a picture and he moved reluctantly, but didn't flick. Gave me a slow threat pose, but no flicking.

Torch is a boy. I would love a girl for this boy. Might look for one at the upcoming reptile expo.

Brachypelma auratum is my all time favorite T. Purchased two 1/4" slings about 8 years ago that were DOA.

My wife had a 24 year old smithi when she was growing up. Her Dad also had a caiman in their pool. What luck! I had to fight like heck to keep a cornsnake.

After seeing an emilia my wife is itching to keep a T again. Looks like it will be his and her Brachypelmas.
There seems to be a lot of variance within emilia but auratum all seem to be stunning.

Are there wysiwyg places to purchase confirmed females? I would hate to put them through the stress of reselling and re shipping if I get ones with colors that aren't what I'm hoping for.

Well as they get closer to a molt, all Ts will dull somewhat. Then, once they molt the colors are brand new and stunning.

My family sent me this pic on Friday. I received a package from someone across country on Friday a few hours after I left for the weekend. Arrived safe and sound and no bald rump.

This girl is a female, and has two male dates waiting to mature for her.

I can't wait to get home tomorrow and meet her!

I just got home a couple hours ago and have met her. She is such a sweet T! Not near as flicky as I thought she would be, and is quite active.

Can anyone else tell me, are they typically active and walky?
