    - Grammostola pulchra
    - Brachypelma bohemi
    - Aponophelma calchodes
    - Theraposa stirmi or blondi (when I have more experience)

    No OWTs for me in the forseeable future.

    Only Ts I want to add are a couple Iridopelma hirsutum slings since mine turned out to be male and a Psalmopoeus victori. Still kicking myself for passing up the opportunity to get some P. victori slings for $50 each a while back, I was being all adult and telling myself I couldn't afford them at the time....

    The only other arachnids I had on my wishlist are coming next week, a whipspider and a vinegaroon.

    Basically what other people have said. I may change my mind in the future, but I don't have much experience nor do I have a spare room to keep OWs apart from the birds.

    I'm not afraid of them, I just know that accidents happen, and I have an anxiety disorder. I'd rather have spiders whose main defense is flicking hairs and/or running than striking around my birds.

    I don't have a spare room. Plus, I do have an anxiety disorder. I know OBTs and other OWs aren't dangerous aggressive murder machines, but even with my meds, I worry a lot, about everything. It took me a month to get my juvie brachypelma albo because of my stupid brain.

    Tityus stigmurus 6i

    Heterometrus petersii 2i*10
    Parabuthus transvaalicus 2i*4
    Hottentotta hottentotta 6i

    My room will be filled with scorpions two years from now :smuggrin:
    At least that's the idea, I imagine four pathogenic species is capable of doing that.

    This is my "to buy" list, my "wish" list would be...

    Tityus stigmurus colony
    M.balfouri communal
    Paratrechina longihorns (Crazy black ants, I probably spelled the genus wrong) colony
    C.grailis communal
    A bunch of emperor scorpions
    Boa constrictor
    Some snails
    Some crabs
    Some alligator turtles?
    A termite colony of any kind
    Dubia colony
    Red runner colony
    Madagascar giant hissing cockroach colony

    Along with 50 other species that I would like to have on their own, nothing big no huge amount of breeding. :smuggrin:

    I started writing it down, but it's gotten so long that now I just keep it in my brain. When I see a species name from one of those, I remember that I want it.

    I'm not sure anymore. Well, I want a T. cyaneolum, but other than that... Maybe some Grammostola sp. I kinda want a G. porteri, but then again, I already have a G. rosea. Maybe E. campestratus. Maybe some Aphonopelma sp. I thought I wanted a B. albopilosum but then I changed my mind, same thing with D. pentaloris... I don't want a huge collection, so I'm picky.

    To be more serious I have so many invert species I want I don't have a orderly list - as in I'm getting this one, then that one next. Rather, when I have the money I look through all the seller sites I bookmark to see what's available that's on my "list" and buy the one(s) I want the most. Also I check the classified here and a few other places everyday looking for bargains, though that causes me to sometimes buy animals I hadn't even planned on getting, lol.

  16. I absolutely love my Avic. I'm hoping to get some more slings sometime soon, however I really want to keep some Psalmopoeus species as I believe they might get me ready for some OW's.

    I'm terribly sorry for your loss! It makes me ever more grateful for this forum because we actually understand the relationship that we build with our T's! And yes, I really hope you get a female! Fingers crossed.

    Holy GOALS. You've got a damn zoo my friend. I'm eyeing some species of snake and geckos to keep.

    Gorgeous species.

    Love all of 'em!!

    Ooooo I want a balfouri communal badly. And I'm looking to start getting into scorps sometime soon.

    I'll have to check out the classifieds. Are breeding reports still a thing? And if so, where can I find them? I'm loc in Alabama and have a couple of breeders I've looked at buying from.

    Story of my life! And this time around, we are just getting started! I grew up on a ranch and also had even more pets... then I downsized to move around like a gypsy for 10 years,. Now I am settling down, so let the private zoo acquisition commence!

    Too many to list right now honestly. Mostly when I go window browser shopping I just look at what intruiges me and keep it in mind until I have enough money and do some digging and poking around for information and what not until I go back and see if they still have it for sale. Big wants at the moment are some kind of solifugae (almost had one but it unfortunately passed during posting) and any kind of tarantula that's golden in colour. I'm also kind of wanting to delve into true spiders due to some extremely beautiful species I've seen lately.

    I picked up a L klugi a few weeks ago and it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. Always out, great feeding response and it's very curious. Every time I open the enclosure it walks over to whichever side I'm standing on to investigate why I'm disturbing it. Really neat T's.

    As far as what's on my wishlist I've been on a Brachypelma kick recently so pretty much any Brachypelma other then B albo, klassi and hamorii. Oh and definitely
    Sericopelma sp. Santa Catalina.

    Don't have room for any more Ts at the moment but when I do I'm seeking out a N. chromatus. N. incei also interests me, as does C. cyaneopubescens. I'd also love to have another Aphonopelma species, probably A. hentzi since it's the one native to my state. Oh and I'd love to have an A. geniculata. I need more space.
