    Just wanted to share some of the photos I've collected of all of my Ts so far. Hope you enjoy! These first photos are right after I got my little GBB and P. fasciata.

    Within a week I was already hooked on these amazing and intriguing animals. Went to the New England Reptile Expo intending on learning more and possibly buying another. Ended up with this little G. pulchripes sling whom I absolutely adore.

    We have begun calling the G. pulchripes "Chaco" (creative bunch aren't we?) but sadly it and the GBB are very difficult to photograph in their deli cups but here are ones from about a month later.

    The Pokie has actually been much easier to photograph given the larger size, and the recent move to a bigger home. Here are a few of him/her. Still unsure of sex but leaning towards male until the next molt so I can check.

    @mistertim here are the photos of the setup for the Pokie, along with another of him/her, sorry it took so long.

    It is far from perfect, I know. I will most likely be buying enclosures from here on instead of making them. Shows me how good it is watching YouTube "tutorials"

    Thank you! So far only the Pokie has a fancy home. Perhaps monday I will be able to get better terrestrial housing though. The photography is by far more my camera and the spiders being in the right places, aside from the 2 new ones who were not ready for their close up.

    I believe you, even my so-called smartphone camera and little Sony digital took atrocious pictures. I upgraded to a Nikon 3400 DSLR though and you can see the results. The keys to good photos are #1 The camera, #2 the lighting, #3 the subject, and #4 some patience. Or at least I hope so because so far those have been what has helped me lol

    How did you get into the hobby

    Pretty normal story I suppose. I have always been intrigued by tarantulas and scorpions. Asked a bunch of questions to people who own them already and decided to go for it. Certain ones, like Poecilotheria species definitely helped me decide I wanted to get into it. The appearance and behavior just amaze me. What about you? What got you into keeping tarantulas?

    Same as you, always fascinated me but I have more simple species unlink the Ps. I would say I am new to the hobby but I know a lot about the hobby

    What species do you have? I am the first to admit that getting the Pokie was not wise, my previous experience dealing with venomous snakes and some of the monitor lizards gave me a false sense of security. I definitely will not be expanding my Poecilotheria collection any time soon. So far (knock on wood) there have been no issues, even with rehousing. Though that was simple, going from a deli cup into another then into the enclosure in the photos.
