12! And I am planning on getting a few more next month at the unique animal expo, which by the way I am sad to see that NWInverts is not yet on the list of vendors. :( However, Northwest Zoological Supply is! And that is where I have gotten a good portion of my collection... I like the woman who works the booth. We chat. I have to get her name... :)
Will you be going to the Wilsonville show on the 27th of this month? I know they're going to be there then. Where is next month's show going to be held?

Hmm... Wilsonville on the 27th eh? :drool: Where exactly is it at? Next month's show is at the Washington county fairgrounds. Just a hop skip and jump away from Forest Grove. (Checking out the website now ;) )

I've got 13.

4 if you don't count various slings. If I weren't so poor at the moment, it would be another number ;D

I'm up to 14 so far: 1 A. versicolor
2 H. lividum (adult)
1 H. longipes (adult)
1 B. smithi
1 B. boehmi
1 G. aureostriata
1 M. robustum
1 N. chromatus (mature male)
1 P. ornata
1 P. regalis
1 P. pederseni
1 P. murinus
1 T. blondi
I'm really hoping to get the money put together soon for a few more Pokies and maybe another A. versicolor. I really like the color and visibility of the Brachys to though, ahh who am I kidding, there aren't very many Ts that I don't find interesting.

If you count the tarantulas we have for sale in inventory, we have around 4000 in house... but of that number, about 1500 are in our private collection and breeding groups.

This is a good reason for me to count my family members.{D

I have 18 specimens, 12 different species both old and new world Ts.

This pales in comparisson to my scorp collection of 137 specimens from 19 different species.

I have 50 tarantulas and 4 scorpions. But I'm sure I will have more tarantulas when shipping season opens up again.
