    Now I think we’ve all seen the thread “Cringy Tarantula videos” now I just came across a care sheet online and thought it was downright ridiculous like most are. I wanna see what else you guys can find that are completely stupid. Like this peice of work

    Pretty much ALL care sheets are cringe worthy in one way or another.

    You want to search for that rare one that's not cringe worthy...now that would be worth noting. You just might have better luck finding bigfoot at a McDonalds drive through.

    Yours and @viper69 s Avic spp. care sheets/threads are examples of some not cringe worthy care guides. ;)

    It's like they found a lizard care sheet and did a "find and replace" to add "tarantula/scorpion" in place of the actual intended animal.

    Good lord.

    This care sheet should be called “How to kill your new pet tarantula and scorpion”

    A lot of veterinarians (good luck finding one that knows anything about tarantulas) are going to be getting calls from concerned rosie owners if they follow this advice:

    I couldn't get halfway through that, but what I did read was horrifying. Also, when's my rosie going to get to 8" dls?:hilarious:

    If it doesn't reach 8", contact a veterinarian.

    With care sheets I find if you Google species most of the time Toms care sheets come up on top of the search.
    So it's not all bad.

    Don't go to the veterinarian if your tarantula has swollen joints. Just dust your crickets with crushed up asprin twice a week.
