My youngest child turned 18 and moved out :D
The dust didn't have time to settle before I had my T collection in that empty bedroom
The 2 shelves of 90+ enclosures that had my living room over crowded, are dwarfed by the new space I have now
In fact it looks a little bare in here, think I'll go...
She tried molting upright and ended up getting stuck. Hasn't made any progress since last night. I thought she was dead last night, but she was still moving when I just got home. Right now most of her right legs are out, but she can't make any more progress. I've carefully bumped the humidity way...
Hey guess i'm new posting here but just wanted to tell a quick a sad story about one of my T's. Well me and my roommate ordered the beautiful Gooty and when it arrived we were thrilled. On day 3 or 4 I came home on my lunch break (around 12:30 am ) as I do 6pm-6am shifts. Well when I got home for...
Hi I have 9 T's and was wondering how many dubia roaches to get. I have a small colony of 30/10.
I have a avicularia avicularia,a g. Rosea,a sun tiger and a avicularia urticans idk what to next any sugestions?
I was looking through the classifieds on this site and found some 2" G iheringi "Entre Rios" for a really good price.
I think they are also already sexed too if so I'll probably buy them today after the seller responds.
very excited about this potential purchase because these two will be my...
So I popped onto Buzzfeed, my preferred provider of silly lists that sometimes make me laugh knowingly to myself and saw this headline:
"This Photo Of A Tarantula Is Actually A Naked Woman Covered In Paint"
...Alright, well that sounds interesting. ...Nope. Nope. NOPE.
I'm going to be ordering more Ts tomorrow. Will definitely be getting a couple of A. genic slings, but past that there are just way too many options to choose from. I've kinda got kid-in-a-candy-store syndrome going on here. :giggle:
My plan is to stick to new world species for now. No point...
So, my little buddy Tate has been going on 2 years now as a mature male. This is apparently a very long time for this species. Anyone else have mm avics last this long? Just curious. Also, any others that have exceeded expectations after maturity?

I'm having a heck of a time working out where to post this. So, if I've stumbled please let me know.
I write a lot of fiction, and I know this isn't really the topic of the boards, but I am beta testing a new series that features tarantulas and tarantula hawks and well, that does sort of seem...
My sling molted so I got her a new enclosure, but I'm worried about her climbing and falling. It seems about twice her legspan in height.
Should I put more substrate in?
Just a quick question.
My B.albopilosum has decided to dig under her cave and in doin so the cave is un supported 1/2 way around the base.
All the supstrate she moved made a impressive wall nearly 2inches thick in front of the cave.
So should i leave her be or modify enclosure so the cave...
Hey just for fun what large NW do you prefer between Acanthoscurria Geniculata and Phormictopus Cancerides and why? I am raising a little Genic sling and he is one of my favorites in my growing collection(my collection is not growing in number yet, but they are all young so are literally a growing...
... is in the Watering Hole.
Please respond. I'm curious as to how many members we have in common. Here is a link to the poll.
I was picking up crickets today at the local exotic pet store, and thought I'd take a peek at the decent selection of Ts they had. They even had a pair of P. metallics for sale, and all of the enclosures were very well taken care of/properly set up. I'm new to the hobby, & have stuck with catch cup...
I hope this is clear enough as my ISO was too high. I just tried to snap it as fast as possible. Not sure why but I couldn't get the picture to show up directly again. I have issues with that uploader...or I`m stupid. Either way.
Male or Female? Best guess?
During my stay here in Missouri (beautiful state by the way), I heard a rumor there was a tarantula burrow at a local glade. So I went there and found the burrow. After a good half hour teasing it out with a reed shaft and swearing constantly when it ran to the back of the burrow, I managed to pull...
I recently acquired a young BB.
At night/dark it seems to spend its time on the enclosure floor (from my observations), yet during the day it seems to prefer the wall of the enclosure.
This obviously leads me to believe the substrate is not ideal (or the humidity).
I've heard a lot of different things, but more often than not that you shouldn't handle your T and if you do to the bare minimal. I do want to at least hold my B.Smithi even if it is with him just on my hand in his home (so he doesn't get hurt in anyway), But how many of you actually do and How is...
just moved my G. rosea 4.5"-5" female from a xxl kritter keeper to a 10g. figured she might like the extra spac because shes not exactly a rock... so she got a 10g with a plastic pot hide and a icecream cup for a hide as well as a 1/4 cork round leaned against wall as a hide and 2 different pothos...
I just got my 2nd T. a A.geniculata sling . I'm feeling addicted at the moment. Any suggestions for a 3rd T. ? I don't plan on getting many T.s in
the future due me owning many herps as well, but I wanted to ask you guys what are your suggestions for a 3rd T.?
I have no real idea of where to get a cold pack for shipping Ts. Does anyone know where to get them or if I need a specific kind?
My female platyomma molted recently, and I believe that my male is quickly approaching his maturing molt so I've been doing a lot of reading to prepare myself, and making sure that I have everything in order for pairing them. This will be my first attempt at pairing T's. My female is...
Ever since being tramatized (I'm joking about that, okay?) by my Lasiodora parahybana sling suddenly curling up and dying, I am now extremely paranoid about my GBB sling dying. I mean, even if it goes into an even slighly out of the ordanary pose, I have to open the cage and poke it a little to...
