So a little over a week ago I took the dive into the T hobby. It was inevitable. I found myself lurking this and other resources for months, researching and basically drooling over the vast amount of species in the hobby. I have kept fish and reptiles for decades, but recently work has required me to leave home for days. This has meant less time to adequately care for my pets...but T's.....this becomes less of an issue. So while shopping for something else, impulse bought a roughly 2 inch body length LP. Rehoused it, decided to make some changes to the substrate, so annoyed it for a moment, then re introduced it to the enclosure. The LP dug itself a nice burrow under a peice of cork bark, and I have seen fuzzy legs poking out periodically through the nights that have followed. Awesome seems I'm doing something right, seems to be a happy T. So of course yesterday while picking up some crickets I came home with. B. vagans sling. Rehoused it into its new enclosure, dropped in a pre killed small super worm and went to bed. This morning it was munching on the worm. Latter on spent a few hours grooming. Then Did a bit wandering before digging itself a new home under some cork bark. Seems I have two happy T's so far.....I can never enter a pet store again...I see a pattern developing. So to those more experienced in the hobby....when was your first realization you are an arachnid addict? And when did you realize your collection had grown to epic proportions?
