    I'm a little more optimistic than you I guess. She does seem to have everything she needs to properly care for the spider. Yes, the enclosure is enormous for that tiny spider, but with some diligence, and some research on here, I believe she can manage to feed and water it adequately. Perhaps she will think about downsizing the enclosure for ease of care. A large enclosure of itself isn't dangerous to the spider.

    How could she possibly think that the enclosure she chose is an appropriate size for that sling, it’s gonna get lost and she’s gonna probably get it killed by feeding it crickets that are way too big? Hopefully she learns her lesson

    It's not only the size of the enclosure that worries me, but she specifically said this species needs a very humid environment and I can't see any ventilation whatsoever with that glass enclosure. I think she even wrapped up the top (you can see a glimpse of it at around 6:55). :eek:

    Also, she told the other guy who also criticised the size of the enclosure that she would only tong-feed it. How on earth will she manage that when she can't even find the sling in there? :confused:

    I just hope she'll come here and get help.

    I think it was, but regardless, THAT IS NOT A CAMEL SPIDER! It cannot be that hard to look up what they actually look like.

    Well I listened to about 10 minuets of it and skipped ahead when they stated talking about drugs and off topic stuff and only about 1-3 minutes is actually about the tarantula “epidemic” in India and this is what I heard in those 3 minutes that mad me want to scream
    -
    “Numbing poison on the hairs on their legs”

    “They are BELIEVED to be in the tarantula family”

    “They’re coming after people”

    “They have a mob mentality”

    “They have killed 2 people”

    “They live in colonies”

    “You’ll get the spiders on you right away”

    I don’t have the video but just witnessed Coyote Peterson put a tarantula on Ryan Seacrest’s head :shifty: cringeworthy indeed.

    On the topic of Coyote Peterson, he is supposedly giving up his ridiculous 'Sting Report' videos after being stung by Polistes carnifex, which is a wasp with sting that causes tissue necrosis. I'm not saying he deserves to have a permanent scar in his arm from that wasp, but as my uncle says "If you sow something stupid you will get a bountiful harvest."

    Well, this gentleman's voice is nice and soothing and the landscape photography is jaw-droppingly amazing, so the vid is definitely worth watching! I think it was mentioned that these encounters were probably false identifications since it is biologically impossible for spiders to grow that big given the oxygen constraints of Earth's atmosphere. However, that one in Canada sounds like a straight up alien. ;) Still, a giant two-three foot T would be awesome. I'd put a leash on mine and take it for walks. :D :D :D

    NOTE- Inspired by Exotics Lair, i'm not surprised.

    The problem is not the "type of content" that just get views, it's the person behind it. Exotics Lair is not the best on info and stuff, but at least his dialogue and stuff is entertaining. Not to mention Exotics Lair does have that comfortable home vibe when watching his videos (for some reason). What I don't get is that just because one youtuber is successful on views/subscribers from one video doesn't mean everyone else leech off from them. This is why it's so annoying, "JUST BE ORIGINAL". Not some leech content wannabe on views/subscribers. I wish that someone tried something different for videos in this hobby and not some leech content from one successful/better youtuber. It's like eating someones table scraps that is left on the table to just get taste of the same thing.
