Nah my man, for those reasons:

- I live in another continent, so that would be 'brown boxing'

- ain't a fan at all of 'true spiders' in all honesty

- just in my Lombardy neighbour region of Liguria, we have Latrodectus tredecimguttatus in the wild

- in Italy the keeping of pot venom arachnids (and genus Latrodectus are) is banned
Why aren't you a fan of true spiders?

I like them but I prefer to see those in the wild, in our country, and not in captivity even if I have nothing against those that keep said spiders.

A lot of those IMO aren't so "easy" and "direct" to care for just like Theraphosidae are: they need different enclosures (think about certain web they make) with a different idea/view of space, size.

I'm not a man that in life rely on "size" but when it comes to arachnids/inverts in general I appreciate that feature, this is one of the reasons why I don't keep 'dwarf' T's, stunning colours, but too little on my book. 'GBB' are little, for my standards (even if I have and love that specie).

IMO a lot of true spiders are, on a pure aesthetic level only, nothing special.

And so on, with that said spiders like huge huntsman and such like genus Heteropoda are another league :-s

It's really too bad I'm not near you, I'd gladly take one off your hands!
