Advertisement Hi all, I have read in several topics that people used to have Tarantulas in the past but than gave away or sold their whole collection, only to return to the hobby later (probably only those who returned are active on this forum anyway). I thought a long time before buying my first T. and their longlivity was actually one of the main points why I hesitated. Who knows what will happen over 20 - 30 years? On the other hand a small collection does not take up much space, is cheap to maintain and can generally be moved without problems. So, I am curious egarding your experiences or ideas: Why would one give up their T.s.? Edit: Don't feel compelled to share any personal circumstances that you are uncomfortable with telling.
