    So I spent the past few days in New Orleans, I hoped to go by the zoo, but the boat wasn't runnign from the Aquarium of the Americas...so I just went there, and upstiars they had a room where they used to keep froms but now it is mostly empty but they had a half wall with some tanks in it and there were two T's, both clearly G. rosea, they were being kept on what appears to be pine bark chunks and had sponges to drink from...but You can't save a T from an Aquarium...
    so here is the great labeling Lousiana Brings:clap: :clap:

  2. my zoo had a few labeling mistakes (still using old species names) too up until January when i corrected them. mistakes happen :)

    Brachypelma smithi labeled Euathlus smithi.
    Damon sp. labeled Tarantula sp.
    Grammostola rosea labeled Grammostola spatulata.

    I see it as a tiny step forward at least it doesn’t say “BIRD EATING TARANTULA!”
