    Just referring to the little thing as a she, in hopes that is what it turns out to be I have two molts from "her" but still too little to tell. In time!

    I developed the same response to the new worlds! When I started keeping tarantulas the hairs didn't bother me hardly at all, and 7-8 years later I was breaking out into big rashes all over my hands and forearms, and my hands would get puffy.

I think one day I may get another poec...
