well, as some may remember...I have been making the odd thread over the last few years about T`s...I have wanted one since, well...forever!...but alas the other half has always said no, she does have quite a phobia...and I have not tried to force the issue too much, anyway...she has FINALLY given in!...and I am now the VERY proud owner of a juvie B.Smithi!! :flrt::flrt:...I know sexing is very very hard...but any tips would be greatful, I would prefer if it turns out to be female but am not that bothered...anyway enough waffling! here s/he is!!



















I am sooooo happy! and hooked already!! :mf_dribble:

Congrats on your first T , probably wont be your last unless the OH puts her foot down . :lol2:
The only way to really be sure is to wait for it to moult (which is quite a stressful time for most new owners) and hope it doesn't completely mess up the old skin .

That was my favourite website when I was first starting out, I looked through the whole thing about 20 times.

Congrats on your first spid, and the last pic is awesome.
Yeah get an avic next, a lot of women say they hate tarantulas, or are scared of spiders, but they all love avic's with their little pink feet.

If it resembles this

It's an Avic Guyana!

not possible i'm afraid as firstly there is no such species as A.guyana and secondly iding the majority of any Avics by any method is just about impossble right now.

over the last 10 years a good dozen totally different spiders have been introduced into the hobby as Avicularia sp. 'Guyana' so if you can clarify which one you mean and which one is the right one that would be muchly appreciated
