    I would love my rotting flesh so badly when I will touch the 80, playing the "old dumb geezer" card and touch the butt of sexy Eastern European 'elder-caring' Ladies that needs to change my catheter :)

    I think they aren't... I think they are a bit 'hyped' on a negative way: by far L.rufescens are worst if, for pure bad luck, Loxoscelism occur after a bite :)

    Still the bite is badass, chelicerae talking.

    We started with the average T's, a G.rosea and one A.avicularia. Classics for 'noobs' (despite we had a bit of spider catch training in the country, before).

    Anyway, we reached Milano in train (of course no Internet let alone online T's shop way back) because in the area only Milano had shops (owned by other keepers) that sold T's and inverts.

    On the train, back home, we (four: me, bro, two friends) terrorized the other passengers (seriously they .... in their pants) and cheated our family using an excuse (we couldn't enter with enclosure and everything in hand without causing 'alert') during the trip I had the idea :angelic:

    Plan was: one of the friends, entering for first, would cause noise saying that: "a bizarre heroin junkie tried to bribe us on the train" while the other 3 hide the enclosures etc

    Worked. But one day, a week later, while we were at school, my grandmother cleaning the house heard a noise from the wardrobe: freaking crickets noise, ah ah :kiss:

    When this happened in a corner of Lombardy, Italy, you were 2 :playful:

    We definitely fed a troll on this one... now that I read his responses again, at least.

    A sweater and long rubber gloves? He's mocking.

    Back then in Italy they were the class A 'parents terror'.
    Things like "they even clean their syringe in oranges (at the market, lol) or in the Holy Water!" were legendary :)

    Honestly, I'm not sure. Because that -is- something people talk about when working with T. stirmi. He's just a kid, it's plausible he just assimilated that into this.

    If, and I mean if you get the proper husbandry down on an H mac, you will have no problem with an obt. About the same attitude, one is arboreal, one is terrestrial. Early on, I thought of the H mac as the arboreal obt. Don't do it in a month, get a few molts in on that H mac.
    I know nobody is going to change your mind. You're a 17 year old guy from New York. You're invincible. Dude, I'm not mocking you. I've been there. I wasn't rude earlier, I was giving advice. But really, you are all over the place. You go from an A seemanni to an H mac. Now you want to add an obt which is kinda progression, but backtrack way up to a rose hair. At least say a King Baboon.

    People are trying to help. At least in their own way.

    It would be best to sell it to a more experienced keeper.

    But in all honesty, quite frankly, and saying this with all the respect for other keepers suggesting nothing but valid advices/genuine help, I don't care anymore if the average Joe/Nancy wants to buy as first/second T's the likes of P.murinus or whatever.

    In Italy this doesn't happens. We had a ban before, now we are "regulated" (fine for me, since no Theraphosidae is banned, unlike other European nations where, sometimes, 'Pokies' are questioned etc) so no one sell/trade to 'noobs' certain T's, period. Feel free to not believe me.

    Call me/view me as "egoist", ain't one. Just that sometimes people need to 'smash the face upon the wall' for have back a good, little dose of common sense. This is how life works, for me.

    Ain't the one that will pay the (hypothetical) E.R bill. Ain't a parent the Doc will (hypothetically) question (because in general Docs are curious about certain things). An (eventually) dog/cat/other pet/whatever bitten aren't mines.

    If millz needs an advice, I will give one. Basically follow what I've said in my first post here in your thread, aka 'pay attention' and don't care about my 'comma' joke.

    Keep the sling in a well ventilated enough enclosure. Not wet, but not dry substrate either. Offer stuff for hide (fake plants, whatever) because they are kinda "vampires" in regards of light, IMO (even as adults).

    Not my fav. baboon to keep (due to their reclusive nature, for that the 0.1 patterns/colours are stunning) but anyway, good luck.
