@mantisfan101 100% correct, that's why I'm making a care guide. im convinced that there's definitely some that have been smuggled overseas, and if someone becomes overconfident and gets tagged, I think the spider hobby would suffer considerably. There's not really any available care guides available so I think it's important that somebody makes one
@RezonantVoid thank you for that, I look forward to seeing it. As to the whole smuggling issue I totally agree...It’s these types of individuals that end up ruining the hobby for us. We can build it up and make he hobby look as good as possible but as soon as some one gets bit the whole thing comes crashing down.
@mantisfan101 just finished it in the true spiders forums.
I mean if there were overseas facilities making antivenom then fair enough but getting tagged outside Australia by a smuggled one is basically 100% death. Australian import/export laws are tough enough without the international scare of our deadliest fauna being whisked away to other counties
