You should come by more often. I'd like to see more of your Ts and the more input we have from people that have been in the hobby a while the better.I don't go the the tarantula section much, just thought people would like seeing some pics of some from "back then".
Well one of those species is amazing and I am very jealousHow long did it take?, hmm, not sure, would have to go back and look around for that, could be 7-8 years now(?), don't know. I have a lot more but males aren't maturing yet. I don't hit the tarantula section much because my interests are the reverse of most. I think of centipedes and scorpions before I think of tarantulas, I know, WEIRD! I only have 2 tarantula species.
Soooooo... what's the other species you have?
Nice, I was kinda the other way. Growing up on the farm in NC snakes, lizards and turtles were common and we were around them a lot. I was keeping hognosed snakes before I was a teen.2 G. rosea. They are CB also, somebody sent me two tiny slings prob 10 years ago as freebies. I wouldn't have bought them or asked for them but, well I just kept them anyway, they've been pretty cool. I think I got burned out on tarantulas when I was a kid, I used to go hunt for them when I was around 10-12, running back home to fill up a gallon jug with water again, "there's that kid again with a jug of water, what's he doing this time?" For some reason I never got real interested again, I turned to snakes and salamanders more. I'll never forget the first time I found my first salamander, freaked me out.
