These specimens are 2.5inches to 3inches in length. 
We have Unsexed, we have males, and we have females.
Soon enough, they will be all sexed, it just takes time to sex them all, and we have started the process.  

(Chromatopelma cyanapubescense)
The first two pictures are what the babies look like.  The next set of pictures are the same tarantula, but with adult coloration.

Enclosure size recommendations:

A flat Tupperware like enclosure, about 2in tall, and 3 to 4 inches wide for babies.
If you need one, just ask it in the notes and I will include one for free during shipping.
After several months, they can be rehoused into a slightly larger tupperware container.  Add a few holes across for cross ventilation.

Notes on species:
The GBB is a staple in the hobby. 
It’s a must have, and one of the most recognized tarantulas.
Its relatively calm and docile behavior make them a very popular beginner species.
Although on the docile side, this species still can kick urticating hairs when threatened.


They thrive in drier and arid environments.
Occasional misting inside the enclosure is recommended. 
Keep the substrate dry, but NOT desert dry,.
Water dish is not necessary for babies.  
They like heat. The hotter your temperature, the faster they mature.  
They will tolerate temperatures anywhere from 70° all the way up to 85°
Feed one small cricket once a week.

Shipping costs:

I charge a standard rate of $50 for shipping tarantulas, and isopods.
I take a loss on shipping, on every package.
There are many costs associated with shipping that are not evident on the surface level:
An insulated box.
Cold/heat pack.
The vials that the animals go inside of have to be drilled a certain way.
The preparation of the vials with padding takes labor to make.
So $50 for shipping is actually a bargain.
Packages go out usually Monday/Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday.
I will not ship after Wednesday, because if there are shipping delays, I do not want it to go over the weekend.

Live Arrival Guarantee:

I offer LAG (Live Arrival Guarantee) on every single package that I ship.
Animals usually arrive at your doorstep, or your nearest FedEx hub the following day after I ship.  Usually 10am, but that is not always the case.
Sometimes it might take an additional day to arrive, but that is rare.
In the RARE case that the animal/s arrive DOA (dead on arrival), the receiver MUST send photos and video to me within an hour documenting the condition of the said animal.
We will then discuss replacement options if that is the case.
I've been shipping and sending hundreds if not thousands of packages over the last 10 years with an impeccable track record.
Shipping costs on DOA’s are never refundable.

Local Pick Up: 

Local pick up in Los Angeles is always available.
If you live close, come pick up the animals.
I can also personally deliver the animals the same/next day if the order is over $200.



Where do you get your enclosures?
For a good quality enclosure, I recommend Herpcult Enclosures

What substrate do you use?
I prefer coco fiber substrate mixed with peat. Usually a 80/20 mixture.
Coco or similar
Sphagnum Peat Moss or similar

What temperature do you keep your tarantulas in?
I have my room set at 80°F, but they will be perfectly fine in temperatures between 69°F-83°F. I prefer using the Govee thermometer.

Are tarantulas venomous?
Yes, all spiders are venomous. However, tarantulas do not possess a medically significant venom. There have been no records of any humans dying due to a tarantula bite.

What happens if I get bit by a tarantula?
On the rare occasion that you get bit by a tarantula, remain calm. Do not run hot water over the wound because it will speed up the spread of the venom. Instead, clean the bite mark with room temperature water and monitor your symptoms. If your pain does not go away, please consult a physician.

What do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas crickets, roaches, mealworms, or superworms. However, crickets are always the easiest and most accessible from pet stores.
Tongs I use are- My favorite option or a less expensive alternative.

How often do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas once a week or bi-weekly.
