Advertisement Hello everyone! My name is Elliott and I currently live in the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania. I have been doing research for roughly a year now to get my first tarantula. A little background, I’m an experienced fish and shrimp keeper (a little experience with inverts). I’ve been trying to find someone locally who is breeding tarantulas or a reputable place I can physically go to for my first tarantula as opposed to ordering online. I’m looking for help to figure out if anyone knows of a place I could go or if I would be okay to get my very first tarantula online. For my first tarantula I’ve beeb looking at getting a chromatopelma cyaneopubescens, Avicularia pupurea, Caribena versicolor, or any other new world arboreal tarantula. I know on this forum there are some posts made by folks from around my area, but no one has really discussed best practices for getting a tarantula in this area. Any advice would be greatly appareciated or any best practices! Thank you very much to anyone who reads this!
