    I'm new to the hobby, but my fire was ignited by my soulmate/best friend/partner in all things awesome/love of my life. He collects scorpions and centipedes, he took me to a reptile show and the madness began. He was talking about Arachnoboards here and there, and how informative and cool it is, so I decided to check it out! And here I am, I love being able to talk with so many people, get advice and input, and share my journey. I've been introduced to so many insects at this point, that I have my next 10 planned out lol. Thanks for creating amazing site, and to everyone who has been so helpful.

    i had no idea what this place was when i first found it, but i made a free account for the heck of it, i than learned i knew way less than i thought about tarantulas and stuck around. ive learned more in the last year than in my 61/2 years of keeping combined. this is the place to be if you are interested in owning a tarantula or want to talk to folks about the hobby. :)

    I found it completely by accident while researching tarantulas, glad I found it.

    Hi
    Am new to the site and found the link to this site on a site or tarantula dealers.
    I am a first timer looking to buy my first tarantula. Joined this site to connect with others, tips and support.
    I live in Canada and decided on getting a tarantula at a reptile show I took my son to. I held a Golden Knee female in my hand and she was so comfortable in my hand she didn't want to leave it. It's like we were meant to be .
    Hoping to get to know a lot of you.

    I first saw it doing research before I got my T + nearly every spider person I've talked to has recommended it.
     
  9. It has the most active myriapod forum in the US!

  12. I found out about the boards by scouring YouTube for spidey videos. The Dark Den is an amazing channel and although he needs to work on some of his jokes I appreciate all of his work. He has mentioned Arachnoboards several times throughout his videos and that's how I found myself here.

    Actually some people I talk to online about spiders pointed me here. A bit like:
    'Oh, stop pestering us, go to Arachnoboards, you'll find everything you want to know' (well, not really, they never said anything about pestering ;)).
    And I was like:
    'A forum???:yuck::yuck::hungover:. You got to be kidding me!!! A forum is where arogant show offs, who know nothing, yell at other show offs, who insist a different way of knowing nothing is the only right way to nothing. :sour:.'
    But they persuaded me to at least have a look and I'm glad I did ;)
