    Since I love making pictures and really think it's about time to abandon the "Got my first spiders!" post, I'll post my pics into this thread from now on.

    New additions lined up:

    Since it doesn't let me upload more than 5 pictures in one post, I guess this will take some time...GRR.

    A rare view, ever since I got her, she's quite reclusive but today, she came out for a stroll while I was taking the vids on the new
    enclosures and talking about the other T's.

    She sure thought she'd get through there

    Thanks, man. I got a B. smithi (which is currently in heavy pre-molt) and that sub-adult P.irminia girl as first T's. Took only about a month and now I'm already at 15 I think (including slings) :D However, I read and watched stuff for about 1 year, before I eventually went and got them :)

    Thank you! Yeah, ordered them from Adam (tarantulacages.com) and had to pay an additional $88.00 for import and item taxes...kinda annoying but that was only because my order was over the taxfree limit, so bad luck. Next time gonna order them bit by bit, but the worst is the shipping costs. Obviously, shipping stuff from the US to GER is quite expensive *shrugs* it's worth it however. Those cages are handmade and you can't buy them over here, especially not in that quality even if you would find someone crafting them.

    Thank you, but I'm not even using a bridge camera, this is just a (in my opinion) really good digital cam! I'm using this one: PANASONIC DIGITAL CAMERA DMC-TZ7

    This thing has just some amazing macro qualities if you don't use the "automatic" settings :)
