    I acquired a feisty juvenile Heterometrus species yesterday from a reputable family owned pet store and sought more info on its care and specifically identification it was sold to me generically as a Asian Forest Scorpion. I plan to expand my collection to include more scorps and other invertebrates and lizards.

    Its blatantly everywhere on search engines, thankfully. But sadly so are a lot of caresheets that stress HUMIDITY and for every species..while seldom mentioning the ventilation aspect. Oh well... Glad to have found this place! :)

    I watched Tom Moran to help me overcome my Arachnophobia. He mentioned the forum as a good resource. I was a silent participant for a long while. Just reading about the T's fascinated me. And when I wasn't scared of spiders anymore I decided to get a T. Now I have seven:troll:

    I had an Aphonopelma seemanni for many years, named her Terri. I lost her, many years ago, when a blizzard took out the power in my classroom over Christmas Break. I've missed her...

    I now have several Aphonopelma hentizi, 2 mature males, 1 mature female and an immature female. I had given my students a research topic on tarantulas...when I read over their reports, this site was mentioned in several of the reports. I lurked for a few weeks, and now I've joined.

    I recently purchased 5 GBB slings, to show my students how varied tarantulas can be...and now, I'm afraid I'm getting hooked. I'm already looking at purchasing a few more...after my current slings have put on some size.

    So a few years ago I got a spider. I knew nothing about them and had a terrible fear of them but the tarantulas just intrigue me. I got it at an expo. The guy told me it was a Goliath pink toe which I’m not sure is even a real T now. It was about 4-5 inches. I decided I was going to give it some wild grasshoppers that I caught on some family land that I knew hadn’t been treated or even walked on in many years so I thought it was safe. Well dummy me didn’t even think about parasites which I should’ve known about since I have reptiles. Well my spider loved them but unfortunatly they killed it. I ended up giving my spider parasites. A few years later I decide to try again but this time I wanted to do everything right so I researched and researched and stumbled upon Tom Moran. He has taught me everything I know. I now have two slings and want so many more and now I know I have the information to make right by my old spidey. So Tom Moran brought me here to learn even more!
