Wow, very pretty! Is she pretty aggressive?

Thank You!

Yeah - she's a real pain. She actually tried to pounce on the camera right after I took the first shot. She escaped once and now that I know how fast she can actually move I'm not really keen on having her out of her enclosure for any reason. She moves faster than the eye can reasonably track - I swear she just teleports around once she gets spooked. If you try to encourage her to move with something she'll either attack it violently or flee from it - so she's a bit tough to coral. She is growing insanely quickly though so I really need to rehouse her asap.

This isn't mine but gives you an idea of the fun

Wow. After watching that, all I can say is good luck! XD

Side note- I LOVE the way he has made the front opening vertical 10 gals. I need some of those!

T's are amazing. I used to run a tarantula rescue when I lived in Ohio. I had 13 different species in my personal collection at one point. I plan to restart the collection once we get relocated. This time it's going to be ALL ExoTerra setups. I have a weakness for pretty tarantulas. I've been a hobbyist off and on for a little over a decade, and used to help admin on Tarantula Keepers on Facebook before all the drama and disrespect went hog wild. Singapore Blues are defintely lovely, just quick as can be and highly defensive. My personal favorite is Poecolitheria Rufillata, commonly known as the "Red Slate Ornamental".

I do. I keep Ts, mostly New World temperate terrestrials. Dilemma- that species is worth a good bit of money. I would take it but can't pay for it.

Wait a second! Now I get it. You're moving her from one cage to another, not trying to rehome her! Ha!

Beautiful animal and fantastic-looking T set-up.
