    Hi, I'v been orbiting this forum for approx. a month now. I'v been researching T's for my classroom and settled on getting two GBB slings (coming next week) because of their gorgeous color, tolerant of newbies and low humidity requirements (I live in Colorado). I really enjoy this board and the people who contribute to it and look forward to maybe adding to its value in the distant future. :)

    Hey everyone I'm Jason.

    I'm new to the hobby (been collecting only for a few months). I've owned many reptiles over the years and recently gained interest in the tarantula hobby. I own 5 species now and look forward to expanding my collection. I found the forums thru word of mouth and I'm glad to see such a large community of helpful and experienced collectors!

    My name is Mark. I'm 32, from long island New York. Father of 4.

    We had a bearded dragon that someone gave us. Was told he was around 6 years old, lived with us for 2 years before he passed away. We also have fish (clown & hippo tang) and a couple of cats.

    Personally, I've always wanted a Tarantula. Wife, not so much. But I'm here to gather more information so the leap isn't to hard when she finally crumbles.

    Hey everybody. I'm Kevin. I'm at the extreme newbie/research stage. I've learned just enough so far to know that I have a lot to learn. :)

    I haven't acquired any T's yet.

    I saw this forum mentioned on Stanley Schultz's site. So I figured it would make a great addition to my research resources. I am more of a mailing list person. I'm terrible at keeping up with online forums.

    I've been an animal nut since I was a kid, with a primary focus on dogs. But, my parents aren't dog people. My mother insisted the few dogs I had as a kid stayed outside, and my parents usually found reasons to get rid of the dogs I had fairly quickly. But, I did make up for lost time after I moved out on my own. At one point I had thirteen dogs. Yes, thirteen dogs at the same time. Half of them were Collies. Sadly old age, etc., have taken those thirteen from me. There are four dogs in my current pack at the moment.

    As for tarantulas, I've been curious about them over the years, but never had one. Not too long ago I stumbled across a video on YouTube about keeping tarantulas. I quickly became a tarantula video addict.

    I think I've decided to start looking for a first T. I've only found one local shop that carries T's so far, Critters Exotic Pets. If anyone has suggestions for other sources in the general Waco, TX area I'd love to hear about them.

    I haven't decided which species I'll be starting with. That decision will be greatly influenced by what's available in my area.

    good luck with that Avic sling, they can be pretty frustrating to new keepers.

    Hi everyone, I'm new to tarantulas, spiders are actually my biggest fear. So to conquer my fear I decided to get one. Now I own three! They are very interesting and I'm admittedly addicted. I look forward to getting feedback from you all and learning everything possible. My collection at the moment is a Grammostola Pulchra sling, a juvenile brachypelma smithi, and a full grown paraphysa scrofa. I'm really anxious to get an avicularia versicolor. Look forward to talking with any and all of you soon!

    Hi everyone, my daughters (4 and 8) and I like to collect jumping spiders, Phidippus regius mainly. We are currently raising about 20 slings after releasing most when it became necessary to separate them. While trying to feed with fruit flies, I came up with a fairly simple setup to dispense small numbers of flies. I will post it here when I figure out the best place to do so.

    Hello from Los Angeles, CA!

    I've actually been a tarantula enthusiast for over a year now. Any time I google tarantula-related questions, I almost always end up here! So I finally decided to make a profile and join the community:)

    Hello All, new to the world of bugs and new to Arachnoboards. I'm from So Cal, 38 year old female, and have recently fallen in love with Gromphadorhina portentosa (Madagascar Hissing Roaches). I acquired some at the Reptile super show last weekend and will be getting more asap. Also will be purchasing my first Achetontia atropos, Acherontia styx or Acherontia lachesis. Researching and learning all I can before I move into moths, and all input is welcome!! Thanks in advance! Looking forward to learning, sharing and exploring this site

    I'm very new to hissers and trying to learn as I go, but so far I love it. I have three females and want to get some males and attempt breeding!
