Advertisement After watching many YouTube videos of tarantula keepers I purchased a GBB juvie (1 1/4" diagonal leg span) almost one month ago. I find tarantulas and true spiders to be fascinating creatures. I started to watch the videos to overcome my uncomfortableness (not fear) of spiders. He/she has eaten 6 or 7 B. lateralis over the first 3 weeks and has, a few days ago, seemingly gone into pre-molt. Everything is normal, it began to web almost immediately, but it just sits there. So, my question is, do most keepers end up with many species of tarantulas because most of the time the tarantulas just sit there and we're just looking for something new? I am asking this question because I am already contemplating purchasing one or two other species even though I originally intended to only own one.
