I used to frequent the sSnakeSs forums, which I recognize some people here from, there was an invertibrates forum on there. I remember seeing TarCan's avatar of the canadian flag with the Tarantula instead of the leaf, I went to his site a couple times to look at pics. What really got me interested though was Aiden, since he had quite a few and i had seen them a couple times. I can't remember if he mentioned it or if i just googled for info.
*edit* notice my join date is june 2004, a full year before I got my first T (for my birthday may 30th). So i had been obsessing over them for a while
Our friends in England (that my boyfriend knows from some cyber war game he plays...go figure) who got us into tarantulas recommended the site to us. They have no idea what they started! Now we need a bigger apartment just for the spiders!
I'm going crazy trying to back track how I came upon this forum. Earlier I was poking around on roach sites, then on the ATS site, then searching for the Schultz guide and somewhere in there I found some reviews on the book, and perhaps that's how I got here.
I found it through a link on the ATS web site. It hadn't been around the long I think it was in july, but I liked what I saw. And as they say the rest is history. And by the way it just keeps getting better. Props to Scott and Deb.:clap:
I went to the Cincinatti Zoo and took lots of photos of different animals. When I got home, I realized that I didn't note what species of tarantula I had photographed and began looking for something or someone online to help me ID it, which led me to AB and an ID of P. regalis.
