Was visiting a local pet store with a friend--we saw an employee come out of the back with a tub of 3 leopard geckos. He and the manager were trying to figure out where to put them as all of the enclosures were packed full, except for one. There was a young Texas brown tarantula that had apparently been there a while as they were complaining that no one was ever going to buy them. People WERE going to buy leopard geckos though. Eventually the manager just said to go take it and they can just kill it, they'll get better looking ones next time. Suffice it to say that after a small rant, I walked home with a young tarantula. No, I didn't buy him(not going to give them my money!), they were going to kill him anyway. He's very cute and small. We're going to find a really nice home for him so he can be taken care of properly! I say he, but I have no idea. It SORT OF looks like a girl, but it may be too small to tell. I don't know what size males go through that crazy transformation.
