    Keeping Ts is truly one of the few things I cherish in life

    “What’s the other few things?”
    “Well, thinking of Ts, purchasing Ts, unboxing Ts, rehousing Ts, watching Ts, feeding Ts, breeding Ts...”

    What makes you think they are too small? You do know tarantulas have been shown swimming in a river right?

    Never to small to drink water. You may use ink containers that tattoo artists use. Amazon sells them.

    They're never too small for a water dish.

    Slings don't even break the surface tension of water, they can literally walk on it.

    I'm new to the hobby as well, I have 3 so far and am looking to get more but was wondering if there are better ways to get them other than big corporate pet stores or online sites where prices are a bit on the expensive side ?

    Classifieds section but look at Rutgers announcement on there before contacting someone. Btw Arachnoiden I believe is good I’ve ordered from Steven and I wasn’t disappointed
