Sweetness. Post plenty of pics when you do. I'm really interesting in A. Versicolors, rosehairs, A. Avics and B. Smithi and B. Vagans. (Mexican red knee and red rump respectively.)

I really would love to see a T. Blondi in person one day. I heard they get huge!

All of those are quite nice! Honestly I could have a room full of these interesting guys. I also really like the orange baboons, even if they are a little..feisty!

Definietly! OBT'S are awesome but they're sorta indimidating. I like the Chaco Golden Knee too. (They're all so adorable as slings too!)

I am kinda afraid of spiders, but I dunno lately I like looking at them. Maybe one day I'll even get one :O lol
I used to be the scream and run kinda person xD Now I'm just really interested in all the different species there are.

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.

I love them! My fav New Worlds are G. pulchra, A. versicolor, and B. smithi. I wasn't ready for an Old World, but there are some gorgeous ones. Tarantulas are one of the few exotics I think can be kept humanely. Well, females anyway, since we can entirely replicate their natural habitat, unlike most exotics. It just kills me how poorly understood their needs are. They're one of the most abused pets in America (at least), if you ask me!

There was this whole fiasco of someone at work having a Rosehair, and not providing for it correctly. (i.e. just doing what the pet store said, and we all know how knowledgeable they typically are! *derisive snort*) I typed up this five page report on how to take care of a terrestrial New World species... and was completely ignored. Both of the tarantulas he had died.

I don't have any now because of the feeding issue. But I'm still fascinated by them, like you guys! Beautiful, intriguing creatures!

Looks like I have a tarantula after all. In a visit to a pet store I witnessed the manager and an employee complaining they had no space to put their new leopard geckos on display. They decided to use the enclosure with a young texas tan tarantula, but apparently had no space in the back. The employee was just going to 'take it out and squish it'

O_O

Needless to say after a bit of a rant to the owners, I got a young tarantula for free. He's about 1.5" long total. I say he, but I'm not sure. I'll get some pictures and hopefully he or she will molt or something so I can figure it out easier.


Edit: and here are two cell phone pics to show the size and body shot of him(or her). bad quality though.
