Nice collection! It's good to see you using some scientific names, I'd scrap the common names all together if I were you though. How long have you been keeping tarantulas?

You should be extremely thankful to your parents, some of those species aren't a joke. Please be careful with all of them, but especially that H. maculata. A bite to a person your size will absolutely put you in the hospital, possibly worse if bitten in the neck or chest. This isn't me getting down on you, just understand what you have here.

feed the :troll:

no way does any parent let their 10 year old (9 when he supposedly got them lmao) get that many tarantulas without even researching them first

either that or the t's are actually his parents

to reply, just hit reply and say what you want. dont mess with anything.

i knew plenty at 10 as well. still, no way my parents would let me keep a medically significant species. i think either your parents dont know exactly what youre keeping or they trust a 10 year old way too much.

Trust me there mine and I have researched them and the h.maculata can possibly kill I know it sounds unbelievable but yeah
Wait, your parents know what these spiders are capable of, and they still let you get them? You're sure that you've told them the whole story?

Parents are supposed to make judgement calls for the child. Kind of the point of parenting. I don't care how much research or experience a 10 year old has, no one that age should have some of those species.

Just please be careful. Seriously mate, I don't think you understand how quickly tides can turn.

I did tell them but they said if I ever touched it they would give it to someone experienced I promise and on my life that I wouldn't touch it
