Ive seen this persons YouTube channel and they don't give burrowing species more than a couple inches of substrate and hardly ever provide a hide! She also always leaves crickets with her tarantulas unattended. Do you think her ts aren't being kept very well or is there something in missing?

What could there be missing exept het iq?
Imo she's just a lesser intelligent pornstar that nobody likes to watch.
So she is forced to make stupid tarantula movies on youtube filmed in a downward angle so everybody can see here huge tits...

I really dislike her choice of channel name. Tarantulas aren't deadly to humans, and calling yourself "Deadly Tarantula" anything reinforces the myth that they're extremely dangerous/lethal to people. TV and movies have done enough damage to the public's perception of tarantulas. We don't need one of our own enthusiasts making their image any more negative than it already is.

Great, another thread which could have served as an opportunity to discuss constructive husbandry differences between keepers, but is instead used as a tool to attack people personally and bring to everyone's attention that some people suffer from some serious sexual repression issues that they have difficulty controlling in public.
I'm going to start calling posts like this the 'Arachnoboards Classic' or 'Tell Me Again How this Forum is Better than Facebook?'.

Just another desperate narcissist with lots to compensate trying to get "famous" on the world's second biggest idiot-database (biggest would be Facebook).
Nothing to see here. ;)

Side note: stumbled over her channel when I started to research tarantulas. After DAYS in the hobby, I noticed many things she either does wrong, or wrong things she claims.

I don't understand why people that Ill-informed still have hordes that follow them. Main reason why I'm so critic about any "social" media (or rather, certain people)... Ugh.

Vanessa I see your point and partially agree, however, her case is quite an obvious one and I don't think the problem is her personally, or her way to "charm the camera", but how she represents this hobby. At least that's my issue.
So it's not that weird to debate this here, I think.
One just have to watch out for witch hunts, though.

She's another that (aside for other IMO care errors I can think about) is under the "spell" of being a "substrate Scrooge": you simply can't, period, even think to pretend to be slightly credible when you house a P.muticus in not even 10 cm of substrate.

Just another bad YouTube tarantula channel. It's unfortunate that the most popular ones are almost all bad.

She has a very large collection. Is apart of the boards, or has anyone actually worked with her? There is no way that someone has not at least mentioned something about her care to her face.

I saw the one where the breeding session didn't work well because the tarantula ran off the counter (she had to stop the video and restart it). That was the end for me.

EDIT* It is great to do videos to help people learn, but the tarantula should never be at risk of injury.

I think you take away every bit of information from the many sources (i.e. Deadly Tarantula Girl, John3800, tarantulaguy1976, and many of those on this board) and use common sense in helping you take advice from what you read and see. Many offer good bits of info and many are wrong at times. If you have some level of intelligence and reasoning, you can figure out what the right way to proceed.
Some of the stuff I've seen is great entertainment, some makes you cringe, and sometimes it's that little thing said that I never thought about before.

Ugh..do we really need to go through this again? :meh:
Enter her name in the search function and a zillion threads pop up to tell you how people feel about her.
Same goes for the thread about john3800.

Welp, this thread has devolved into madness in record time.

The thumbnails to her YouTube videos should tell you all you need to know about the info contained :rolleyes:

THAT did it for you? Don't watch any of my videos then. Or any tarantula videos, maybe, cause you know... we don't put these things on a leash :rofl:

I've known her personally for years. Heck, I've watched her animals for her.

It won't matter if I say a million good things about her, the "We know better" crowd is about as likely to change their minds as people are to change political parties based on what they read on an Internet forum.

Uhm, but what about judging her on her videos?
Because that's what people here do, is it not?
And while many who make videos receive positive ratings - why is she being criticized? Just a random victim of a "know better crowd", or maybe - just maybe - justified criticism based on what she decided to publish?

As for a million positive things...
She could find a cure for cancer for all I care, that won't change what she showed and said in her videos about tarantulas, though, will it?
And honestly, you can't blame people getting tired of female 'sexy' YouTubers pushing their breasts coincidentally into every shot either.
It's cheap and pathetic in my opinion.

Ok. When I was asking about my bohemei a while back. I dont remember who. But someone said Its not about where they come from ( the Ts, as I was considering making a homelike substrate from where they come from ) They said Its more about keeping them alive. Not to mimick there homeland in an attempt to keep them alive longer. she has a huge collection. and I learned of the Urticans from one of her vids. Being interested in one, and was told Im too novice for urticans because they are hard to keep alive. told i wasnt ready which was very well true, I wasnt ready. So shes doing something right. Id imagine she has other ones that are tough to keep alive aswell. Just my opion mabey most people shouldnt ... Knock-er ....... ;) so hard. I think theres alot of self proclaimed experts on here and I dont agree with every single one of them. but if there doing a good job keeping them alive and happy then its all good.
