This. 'nervous'. Don't be nervous, Lady. I understand but seriously. You are waiting for a Theraposidae, rejoice.Hello everyone! I recently ordered a B. vagans sling online and a small enclosure. This will be my first tarantula and I'm excited/nervous. I am nervous because I really want to ensure he/she stays healthy and happy.
T's teach us the art of patience, they are the opposite (yes, including OW's) of the 'nervous' term.
I was nervous as well in 1992 when with my bro & a couple of friends reached Milano (no online back then nor those kinds of animal shop there) for buy our first two T's.
Nervous not for their care or such, but about a good excuse to find and sell to parents for the time of entering home with enclosure/s and everything, so I had the idea to tell to one of my friends to blame a lowlife heroin junkie addict (back then pretty popular here, those infamous needle addicted created lots of urban legends here in Northern Italy, oranges included) that "wanted to bribe us, innocent teens, on the train home" for distract Mommy while me & a friend reached our room with the T's, eh eh... while what happened is that we were the ones that scared the hell out of other people in the train, claiming that those spiders were deadly -- the lovely general ignorance of the first '90 was great
Enjoy your sling.
