    Hi JonB,My advice would be not to keep the sling with humidity But to keep it with plenty of ventilation,just the odd droplet of water on the sides of the pot every so often,Keep feeding it until it will eat no more an then just let it molt and repeat the process everytime until you have a nice sized spider!But always remember to keep plenty of ventilation at all times through out its life!
    Hope this helps

    Hi Jon, what area are you in, I may be able to help out with a good local supplier for you, tend to know what's around!

    Cheers!
    The L Parahybana sounds good just been looking on a few sites at care sheets etc, they look like they grow to be monsters! The A versicolor is tempting too, its one of the most beautiful spiders ive seen...i may end up getting them both!!

    Does anybody know of a good supplier online or not, most local pet shops near me just sell the usual g. roseas etc

    Ta Jon

    As leon said an avicularia sp would be a good choice,or you could also try L parahybana,nice and big doesnt need much humidity or attention and is quite aggressive,

    Hi Jon,
    The spider world is your oyster!
    Would you actually like something a bit more defensive, or are you more than happy to have another docile tarantula?
    What about colour? Do you like greens, reds, oranges, blues? Stripes perhaps?
    Have you considered an arboreal tarantula? Avicularia are for the most part docile, with gorgeous colouration, particularly on A.avicularia and A.versicolor.

    Hi,
    I was wondering if anybody had any ideas on what spider i should get next, i am a relative novice to tarantula keeping, i already have a b. smithi, im after something thats a bit more of a challenge to keep but still has a fairly good temperement and is not too aggressive!

    Cheers Jon

    Cool forum by the way!
