Hi,

I have a G.Rosea about 4.5" (around 4 years old) and a B.Smithii around 3.5" (around 2 to 3 years old) which I need to rehome. I shall miss them, but they have to go.

Oddly enough ALL my tarantulas ended up with names of the wrong sex, so these two girls are known as Boris (the G.Rosea) and Morris (the B.Smithii).

Both have nice temperaments and have been handled with no trouble, although I don't believe in handling spiders as a general practice as I don't believe the spider gets any benefit from it and there are risks (dropping, biting, scuttling off and hiding). In any case though, they are as docile and as friendly as a tarantula gets.

They are either free to a GOOD home or shipped at cost.

They are in Hastings on the south coast.

Replies only from good homes please - I'd prefer the new owners had tarantula experience or at least understand how best to care for these fascinating little critters and that they really aren't "pets" in the usual sense, even the friendliest of spiders can and will flick hairs at you and/or bite if they feel threatened or even just for no discernable reason at all.

It's a shame that you're so far away. My bf really wants a G.Rosea and B.smithi.

I hope you find good homes for them soon :)
Hi Marcia,

Thanks for the reply. I'd be prepared to send them in the post carefully packed in tissue inside a couple of layers of boxes, that's how I received two I ordered online once and they seemed to cope fine with it.

If you'd be interested and happy to cover shipping costs (not a lot I wouldn't think, probably 5 to 10 pounds) I could arrange to send them to you that way.

PM me and let me know.

BUMP.

No reply from Marcia in the thread and I can't PM yet as a new member - please can someone who can PM send Marcia a message and let her know I came back in the thread. I'd like to give her an opportunity first then I'll open it back up to others.

thanks

Hi. Sorry i didn't get back to you.

Is it a bit risky to send them in this weather? with there being alot of snow and ice.
Hi Marcia,

I wouldn't send them at the moment, but in a couple of weeks once temperatures are a bit more normal and the post is not backed up I'd have no problem posting them. I'd send them next day delivery anyway so they weren't too long in transit.
