    I just saw this recent Brian Barczyk video and he is rehousing his tarantulas into awful enclosures. Why the hell is it a good idea to have a B. Hammori in an arboreal enclosure!!!! His B. Albopilosum and G. Rosea cages are also bad. Not to mention he handles all his spiders and doesnt even know the scientific names or basic tarantula anatomy. I mean his "Purple bird eater spider" is obviously a pamphobeteus mature male my guess is platyomma. I dont think he even realizes it is a mature male. At this point I hope someone gives him advice on how to keep tarantulas correctly because he honestly seems like a nice guy but I think he should stick to snakes if he doesnt change his tarantula husbandry. I may not be an expert in this hobby but even I know he isn't keeping his T's correctly.

    I skipped forward to a random part in the video and it happened to be the MM rehousings... HOLY DRAMA LLAMA, BATMAN. Why are there so many people, why are they talking about going to the hospital for a bite, why are they all saying "Oooh!" like little kids watching a fight? That was just friggin terrible...

    They were acting as if he was rehousing a 10 inch female P. Ornata. I mean seriously if you only heard the audio of this clip that would be what you thought it was. I honestly have no clue why they were scared. Pamphobeteus aren't exactly medically significant tarantulas.

    No one should act like that when rehousing ANY T. I don't understand the immature behaviour. People should be calm and quiet during a rehouse.

    It's funny, he's also looked down upon in the snake hobby as well. I'm pretty certain almost all experienced keepers of Herps and Inverts hate him or disagree with his many methods and messages.

    My issue with Brian is that he's not experienced enough with inverts. He should just stick with ball pythons and not anything else. Like they say, "fake it till you make it". Which is what happened to him.

    Tell him to stick to dogs and cats

    He's a terrible reptile keeper too. Just a miserable person all around who shouldn't be allowed to own exotics.

    His snake husbandry isn't all that much better than his invert husbandry tbh. This guy is pretty much a meme in the snake hobby.

    I think he’s either over caffeinated or has some kind of personality disorder bc of the speed of his talking. He has the mentality of an utter two year old. I feel not only sorry for his Ts and reptiles but also the humans who have to live with him, too. He’s like the crazy questionable uncle that everyone has, but nobody wants to claim.

    Plenty of people have told him. I've commented on his deplorable videos and I have just commented on this horror show too. He ignores everyone who doesn't agree with him - dismisses them as 'jealous' and 'haters' as per idiot YouTube channel owner guidelines.
    He's a bloody awful disgrace.

    Youtubers who have a big following tend to be very ignorant and they're fanboys even more so all we can do is hope that they somehow stop being stubborn and change.

    You're being optimistic, and that is really very kind of you, but the only thing I'm hoping for is that he gets a face full of Theraphosa hairs.

    I've noticed this as well, being a daily viewer of his channel. However, I don't have any opinion or care on the matter. We can't change what he's doing so I choose not to get upset about it. It's none of my business; I care for MY T's properly, and that's what I'm worried about, all we can do is try to educate folks on proper care. Will it do anything for Brian? Eh, probably not. They never listen.

    Won't watch and give him views. He shouldn't stick to snakes. He's a truly awful keeper.

    I wouldn't trust him to look after a cactus. Pet rocks are about the only thing he should be allowed to have.
