I have been raising and breeding T's for 12 years now and hate to kill anything. I am also a hunter but I will not kill something unless I am going to eat it. But sometimes you have to think safety first. Why take the chance of having a sac of deadly spiders have the chance of doing harm to anyone if you don't know how to safely handle them. Remember you can't blame the animals if they bite you when we bring them into our lives, they are wild and only know survival. And then there is the question of if we shipped them who is to say something wouldn't of happened and they got out. Stranger things have happened we all know how reliable shipping is (ha ha ha). I shipped two boxs of T's out monday one to michagan which made it fine and one to california which we yet to find out where it is. I know the brazilian wanders would have done good somewhere but sometimes you got to ask yourself is it worth the chance. Let's keep the hobby safe so the goverment doesn't take it away, think of the story that could be read in the news if something were to happen and someone died. This is only my 2 cents not a bash on anyone so have a Happy New Year and may there be many good breedings in the hobby for 2003.Originally posted by minax
I wholeheartedly agree!:?
Exactlly Being what we were given for info. they needed to be dead. Alot of us long term hobbiest would love to get our hands on something like that, free eggsac's come on what a gift to raise. But I would still not recomend someone who has no experience to try and raise something like the brazilian wander. If you have no idea where to start as to keeping them it would be very dangerous. If you make a good contact with someone that knows what they are doing and come across another one then it may work you have to have experience in shipping them also so there is alot to learn. Even we long term hobbiest learn everyday.Originally posted by Atrax
Slow down Dean, my post was in full support of your decision. Maybe go back and read it a little more carefully.
I was also making a point to those who were upset, that your decision was (under the circumstances) very understandable. I meant no offense in any way.
