    No one going to comment on the fact the T. stirmi was being kept on bone dry substrate with no hide or water dish? I hope that was a temp enclosure.

    Nah, the post was that that awful guy who's hated in the reptile community now also effs things up in the spider community. Just overall very bad and very cringey :D

    I don't see why everyone hates on Brian. He seems like a good enough guy.... He is big time Reptile YouTuber and now hes venturing into Arachnids. I cant see why this is bad. Unless spreading the Arachnid love is a bad thing.

    If anxiety was an 11 minute video this would be it

    Sorry for double posting but it's not that he's venturing into tarantulas that bothers many it's that he's venturing into show-business more. He mistreats his animals for the sake of collaborating with the likes of Jake Paul and other youtubers like him.

    "He is big time reptile youtuber".

    Yes he is and have you seen how he keeps those reptiles? He's not fit to look after a toy snake.

    Being a famous youtuber does NOT equal quality care or being a professional or even good at what you do. He was already perpetuating bad care and information regarding snakes, and now he's getting into Theraphosidae as well, doing exactly the same.

    Many of these youtubers start getting animals they know NOTHING about because their fanbase goes like 'hey Brian it would be so ultimz kewl if you would dare to keep dis or dat animal lolz like if you agree'. And of course said youtuber will get that animal and mistreats it the same as his other animals. Taylor Nicole Dean is another prime example of this.

    So yes. He does harm. A lot. And when things go wrong with a boy who gets a cobra because Brian made it supercool, Brian will just say, 'hey man, I am not responsible for this, I put up a notice in my vids saying don't do this at home'.

    He used a video of mine once of a jumping spider I used to have. Thankfully I was told about it and made him delete the posts. Didn't even ask, not that it would have made a difference.

    Hey I never said the guy was a saint lol. All I'm saying is I dont think its bad hes getting into T's. I mean we can nitpick at everyones videos and find a flaw or 2, nobody is perfect. If you guys have a problem with the way he mass produces his reptiles to sell, then you probably wouldnt like 95% of the people in his business. Also same goes for the mass production of Tarantulas. Like it or not this is what makes these hobbys affordable.

    I'm sorry but this is just wrong especially for T's, here's how the biggest tarantula breeder in Europe keeps them and to put the pricing in perspective his GBB slings are about 15 bucks.

    One or two flaws isn’t a big problem, having multiple without the intention of fixing them is a problem. Reptiles aside, going into the tarantula hobby and being as influential as he is, many people will start to keep tarantulas like he does. That means they’ll be more likely to start keeping them as he does. That’s where problems occur. If you want to keep an animal, great, if you don’t want to care for them properly, you shouldn’t have them.

    Back to the reptiles, yes he has some issues, his hearts in the right place, just not his mind. Thankfully there are more smaller breeders popping up that do take care of their animals better and not as many people are relying on larger breeders.

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’d rather shell out the extra money knowing that a person puts extra time and care with their animals. And if you look a tarantula larger tarantula breeders, many are still able to care for them properly. Sure there are some crappy ones, but the better ones outweigh the crappy ones. Caring for tarantulas isn’t rocket science nor is it expensive.

    Maaaaan, that was such an old thread. I completely forgot about that. What was it, something like photoshopping species?

    It was a thread about literal common names. Mexican pink leg or something.

    You're right nobody is perfect and nobody in this thread claimed to be.
    But I EXPECT someone that has bought a Theraphosa sp. To understand it cannot be kept on dry sub, he didn't even provide it with a water dish or anything to hide in it was atrocious.
    Even if it is a temporary enclosure there is no way I would keep a Theraphosa sp. on dry sub. It is not hard to add water into the mix!

    A lot of people who buy tarantulas for the wrong reasons (shock factor, on a whim, arrogance, etc.) never cease to demonstrate that they are completely inept to care for anything other than their own egos and e-peens.

    Ok well your rite on the dry substrate for that specific species. However instead of bashing the guy behind his back why dont you try to help him out. Make this a positive situation instead of talking crap and spreading negativity.
