How long after getting your first tarantula did it take you to reach the following benchmarks?
  • having a total of 5 tarantulas
  • having a total of 10 tarantulas
  • having a total of 25+ tarantulas
  • getting your first arboreal
  • getting your first Old World species

benchmarks I've met:
  • 5 tarantulas: 2 years, 9 months, 28 days
  • first arboreal: immediate (my first two tarantulas were Avicularia avicularia)

First tarantula was aboreal (pinktoe). Took 2.5 years to get 5. Counting spiderlings I have 14. I got 10 of those in the last five months. When I bought my lp the seller gave me an obt spiderling, which was my first ow.

First 5- a few months
first 10- a few months later
first 25 probably not long after that,
My first few years were almost all rosea and seemani, that was all that I had available to me.
first arboreal probably 2 years, I think it was a pair of avics, both wild caught
first OW- maybe 5 years, H lividum.
After that, I think I went with P cambridgei and then went nuts. No idea how many or what came after that
