Due to two epic threads in the last 24 hours we're all aware of the two YTers who maintain large collections but whose husbandry techniques some people find questionable.

Luckily in thesebthreads I discovered a channel I didn't know existed that's actually pretty fantastic, so I figured rather than hating on folks we could share a few favorites that we think are fun & informative & provide good husbandry.

I'll start:


The Dark Den, a dude from Croatia whose enthusiasm is infectious & enclosures are awesome! Video quality & videography are great, I've watched everything, a few of the DIY vids twice. Apparently he's somewhere around here. He also rides a bike to town. In winter.


AraneAid
by our very own @EulersK is the one good thing that happened to me today, I've been watching & I've already learned a ton. Random fact, he has tattooed legs. Plus the PBUH dude approves, so go watch!


TarantulaSam
has twenty or so videos that are all enjoyable & he has some good tips & DIY enclosure videos. He looks to be sixteen, but there's a college degree on the wall in one of his videos so clearly we've got tarantula lovin' Doogie Howser on our hands.

Next?

EDIT: Updated with suggestions, discovered some great new channels! I'll try to keep up!

Those 3 are my favourites as well. I especially like Petko's videos - the time he puts into setup and editing to get a good level of quality makes them hugely more enjoyable for me. New video due today!

There are many other channels I dip into but I find a lot of them frustrating to watch because of poor editing (or none at all), weird breathing sounds, poor lighting, poor sound, shaky-handheld footage. etc. I also cringe when it seems like the author is overly coercing their creatures for the benefit of the camera (either nudging hiding spiders out into the open, or repeatedly attempting to feed when clearly not hungry, etc.).

I get that there is a place on Youtube for the homemade, no-frills, straight from phone-cam documentation of people's lives and interests but a bit of thoughtful editing wouldn't go amiss!

That said, I think Basin79's vids are the exception -- no frills but completely charming and I always enjoy his commentary. (Even if he is from the wrong side of the Pennines ;))

Who's the PBUH dude?
There's Roman numerals in his name, refers often to a goddess, although I'm not certain which one, followed by PBUH (Peace Be Upon Her). Maybe Arachne? Or maybe he's an enthusiastic Wiccan, to each their own. Regardless, he seems well-informed.

I love Dave Scott's vids. They are great quality and doesn't seem to put on a facade for the camera. He hates to bother his T's too much and has great care guides. Really cares about his T's and is just great :D

Well, indeed I love to jump like Super Mario in the woods, completely naked aside for a sort of "Honolulu" flower 'necklage', with in one hand the athame and in the other a chalice of wine, but mostly because I'm a registered sex offender only posing as a Wicca Fluffy Bunny :happy:

TarantulaAddict is my favorite. He hails from the UK and has a huge collection, including a huge AF Theraphosa stirmi named Charlotte.
