SFB - No More

Señor Fuzzy Britches proved himself to be male when he built a sperm web. I tried to find someone that needed a male Curly Hair (Brachypelma albopilosum) for mating, but it is such a common species that I couldn't find any takers. They do make for good starter pets.

And so... he passed. I totally understand the majorly short life span of male tarantulas in comparison to females now. Males will stop eating once they are ready to mate. They just kind of whither away. Here is my photo dedication to Señor Fuzzy Britches:

Another handsome specimen that will be missed. We do still have 2 Curly Hair slings; Bonnie & Clyde.
