Man, I must just really be into greys these days, because grey spiders are just pushing every single button in the world. This is a gorgeous creature! Don't suppose you have any slings?! Oh wait, you're in Scotland, aren't you?! Well rats.
Even though i find things like poecilotherias for example to be absolutely stunning, i also love just plain colours with a few patterns. Even though i cant own anything other than phlogius, selenotypus or coremiocnemis, this has still gotta be one of my favourite species
@RezonantVoid I respect so much your country's attempt to keep its wildlife safe and avoid things like rabies and so forth. But I have to say it makes me feel like an absolute rat, and not in the good sense, for having a really beautiful bearded dragon who is my very favorite exotic pet. If I had to lose everything but one, Winston Spencer Churchill, my Sedona red beardie, would be the one guy in the lifeboat with me.
@Dovey honestly I see why Aus has these laws but I dislike the "ban everything" approach. The reason we have pest problems is from deliberate introduction into the ecosystem. I don't think an exotic tarantula that could POTENTIALLY escape from an enclosure would last a week outside. I think we should be able to have exotics under certain conditions, even if it means we can only buy from select companies. Aside from that, beardies are amazing
