    ...when you have just sat and read a 21 page thread while holding pressure on the ear of your dog which is pouring blood from a scrap first thing this morning, all the while wishing the _ dog would stop bleeding so you can go work on the new enclosure for your a. metallica. (True story)

    P.S. The dog has finally stopped bleeding! Off to work on the T house!

    Pothos are tough and live in a lot of my bigger high humidity T cages, I had no luck killing the original plants yet.

    You know your a tarantula keeper if you throw your old ffruit/veggies away to your feeder roach colony. Then use a large pretzel container for your baby Ts.

    hah did this one this morning..

    I got a female OBT living in a cheeze puff container, main I hate eating those things wish we could buy them 25Cents a peice...from china I would buy a lot.
    Id rather eat something that feels like it resembles actual food. Not to mention the hydrofluorosilicic acid in the whole food, & water supply in many country's and this is toxic waste. How do Ts survive?? hydrofluorosilicic acid is fluoride.
    Ts in captivity are tough as nails.

    -You convert an arachnophobe into a T lover by the sheer volume of your jabbering about "teeny fangs" and "sweet little pink toes"
    -A red light is for indoor safari time, not sexy time
    -You laugh when you see a rosie slowly crawling around in an Indiana Jones or Dracula movie

    i woudlnt necisarily use a red light for T's most herps cant see red and thats why they are used for heat but they suck moisture out of the sub super quickly [speak form years of having herps] but indeed most of us exotic keepers wouldnt see it as sexy time [tho i can only imagine what my neighbors used to think when i had like 50 red lights on in the same room a few years back lol]

    Oh, no sweat - it's actually an LED mood light that's across the room from the enclosures. I wouldn't put a light or heat mat anywhere near a T cage, because I know a band of at least 20 T enthusiasts would come to my house in the middle of the night, murder me, and steal my T.
