      Grammostola pulchripes

      I decided to start a few threads here on my own. Grammostola pulchripes is deserving of its own fan club in my opinion. These spiders are usually gentle giants, calm and tolerant. They also happen to be gorgeous. I have two, an immature male that I have raised from a 1.5 s'ling, Inal, and an adult female, Arya. These tarantulas are great for any enthusiast...expert and beginner alike.

      Inal





      Arya

      Beautiful Ts! My 'Piemur' is still a baby (~1.75") and has been a bit of a pansy to date. Spends most of its time with its head buried and its butt in the air. LOL

      I have 2 I bought from Scoolman. They burrowed as soon as I got them and I pretty much haven't seen them since. I hope they are a little more visible when they get bigger. They are only about 1" right now. I would really really like to see the little cuties!

      OH, most definitely!!!

      Well, what can I say? I have 2 gorgeous chacos! Gabby is my mature male, very gentle and pretty. Gabby has helped cure 2 people of severe arachnophobia.

      Laura, my juvie, was FREE! LOL, I asked to get a ride to the 'LPS' , and my buddy gets a call from his friend to get a dozen crickets for him too... then, somewhere along in the convo,
      "hey, no anyone that wants a tarantula?" Well, I was so convinced, that all I might get locally would be a rose hair.... I didn't even realise till later that I had a beautiful chaco juvie!! Sadly, she was mis-treated, and definitely under-fed... but, in time, I think she'll be a sweetie...

      Oh, and so all know... 'mean' for my chaco's means at most flicking (only Laura)

      I'll post pics of my 2 cuties later...

      But, yes... one of the BEST tarantulas, IMHO!

      Here is my little Jinx. She was about 3" when I got her in early Sept. She molted Sept 22 and is now about 4". She stays in her hide most of the time, so I do not get to see her very often. But when she does grace me with her presence, she a sweetie.

      Relax! Take it easy. This is not an instantaneous hobby. It's a long term "getting to know you" sort of thing. There's plenty of time, perhaps a whole lifetime, to enjoy these phenomenal creatures. Patience. One step at a time. One day at a time. No worries. -Stan Schultz

      Great Pics, Scool! And a really pretty girl!

      Semi-Official Disclaimer: OK, this forum does not recommend handling, etc. T's are mean and nasty..... blah, blah, etc., ad nauseum.. but chaco's are CERTAINLY in the Top 5 most handleable T's. My chaco's are about tied with my G. pulchra, and PZB slings, for being docile....
      On a rare occasion, Gabby, my MM, might be 'grumpy'... meaning he pushes away my hands if I try to hold him! *Eeek! I am being..pushed by a 'giant spider'? Very nice fella! Gabby never has flicked... Laura, my free juvie will...

      Been waiting for this thread to get started! Love these guys!

      Until two weeks ago, these were the second to the last T on my wishlist! G. pulchra is last. Ok, and maybe (definitely) A. purpurea.

      But I got two freebies from crawltech when I ordered about 4 Ts. for other friends.

      These cuties molted into 2nd instar around Nov 9 after crawltech waited some 3 weeks longer than he anticipated, and started shipping them out soon after.

      I am anxious to know when I can expect them to molt again! I love keeping charts and once i get a molt or two in my care, I can predict within a day or so the next molt. Getting pretty good at it. Just waiting for these two molt next and don't know if it will be after 4 weeks or 6? Or 3 (next week!)?

      Anyway, here are a couple pics of one of these cuties.

      Also, how big do they get? Related, I have read elsewhere that there are actually two species in the hobby under Grammostola pulchripes, and the more uncommon one is the one known to get up to 10 inches or so. What about the more common one (these I assume are from that species)?
