Got my first arboreal T, a 5" female Tapinauchenius gigas that i named Sequioa. Traded one sugar glider for her and she is officially my most expensive tarantula in terms of value. (She normally costs around $77 whereas a glider would only cost $55 in our currency)

Here she is upon arrival:






In my infamous, transferring & sexing box




On unfamiliar walls




Half an hour later, she's loving the camouflage




P.S.

This is all your fault GBB! Lol

Since then and now, she's calm. I normally blow air first before opening the lid so she doesn't get startled. But she changes mood if you throw in a bug. She can catch it in mid-air lol
