    Hello all! I’m Josh, I’m also very new to this hobby. I just picked up my first T a few days ago after a lifelong interest in tarantulas. I’ve loved spiders my whole life.

    I’m currently at University studying Computer Science with a minor in Philosophy. This is a side hobby that’s always been incredibly interesting to me so I’m happy I’ve found a place for people with similar interests!

    Hope to be pretty active on here from here on out, nice to meet you all!!

    Hey! I’m Kieren. I don’t own any tarantulas because my roommate/bestfriend thinks they are creepy :( So I’m just here to live vicariously through all of you.

    Greetings, I go by Arrngrim online, I've never owned a tarantula and am looking into buying my first one. I am doing copious amounts of research prior to said purchase. I intend to visit a Repticon in my area next month also. Thank you in advance for all of the information I am sure I will find here.

    Hi, I just joined today. Since so many of my inquiries end up here I finally decided to join. I also thought it would be a great place to get answers from other people rather than google since there is so much conflicting info out there. And I might be able to help someone too! :)

    Hi guys, I'm Dan. I've been in the hobby for a little over two years now. I've been on TarantulaForums sporadically but never posted over here mainly because for some reason, this place was blocked at work and that's where I do most of my internet browsing. For whatever reason, it's no longer blocked, so here I am! I've kept my collection small but am looking to pick up some more additions soon. I post pictures/videos of my Ts on Instagram @tardantula, give me a follow if you're interested!

    Please don't put tarantulas on your face, it's a selfish, unnecessary risk to both you and the tarantula.

    She wasn't 'put' there so much as I didn't discourage her climbing. For what it's worth, I was sitting on my bed and she was only there briefly before being lowered again. But anyway, I changed my avatar so as not to tick off anyone else.

    Hello, new to the forum. I currently have 1 Pandinus ?, 1 Heterometrus ?, a dozen or so Gromphadorhina portentosa(Not for feeders), and what I assume is a T. stirmi. Used scientific names since most here do.
    I have plans on furthering my collection.

    Read some useful information so far, looking to learn more.

    Hello arachnofriends!

    I have been lurking for a little while and am finally posting. I inadvertently stumbled into tarantula keeping 6 years ago by taking in an unwanted female g. rosea from a co-worker. I have only recently added a b. boehmei sling and female b. albopilosum "nicaragua" to the household. So while I've had a T for a few years I still consider myself quite the newcomer to the hobby. I am so in love with the variety, beauty and grace of them. I will post some pics of Charlotte and Mathilde to my profile. Boehmei is unnamed until I get the little guy/gal sexed. I'm old fashioned that way. ;)

    I'm in Texas - so howdy y'all!
