Advertisement Tarantula keeping, being such an addicting and fun hobby, I'm sure it has turned many hobbyists into collectors without them(you) even realizing. As someone new to the hobby, I was wondering if anyone might be willing to give some tips or advice on your personal approach when it comes to collecting? Or perhaps, things you wished you had known at the start of the journey? Do you prefer to buy Slings, Juveniles, or Adults? What's the ratio of Slings, Juveniles, Adults you like to maintain? How do you typically grow your collection? Do you buy lots of slings and hope for females? (what happens when you end up with too many males?) or do you simply buy juvenile females? Do you find yourself constantly buying or do you try to breed your own and use them to offset the cost of the hobby by either selling or trading with other hobbyists?
