I should have listened to the warnings. It's only been 3 days, and I already have $100 put away for buying more Ts. I have a list of Ts that I want, each bookmarked. In fact, I even have a whole, cleared off shelf for them! Tarantulas are addictive! I said I was going to get just one and I thought I was only going to get just one but there are s...o...me...*is hypnotized by G. Pulchra* I honestly think this is going to be my biggest hobby yet.

It's horribly addicting isn't it?

I have an entire bookshelf now for my Ts & scorps :D

First it was a couple of G. pulchripes, an A. hentzi, & an Avic sp. because my bf, at the time, wasn't fond of them so I went for nice ones.

Then he removed himself from the picture, so I immediately started adding the bad boys.

My birthday is this upcoming weekend & I know my presents are going to suck, so i'm making it better with another T order :D

And you can't forget that it eventually developes to more then just Ts :D Scorpions, because they just make sense. Cockroaches to feed everyone.

if my boyfriend removes himself from the picture, i'm buying some pokies and some 'pedes and putting the cap on my collection at something shiny, like 50 :p

*sigh* compromise is no fun, sometimes...

I went straight for a P. ornata & 3 T. gigas :D

Our relationship was pretty new so there wasn't compromise. I pretty much told him I was buying some nice species of Ts & if he had problems, we'd discuss it when they got bigger :D

BurntSnow-I know exactly what you mean. I've only had my G. pulchra for a week and I've already found myself making a wishlist of T's I want to get and finding space to keep them. :D

We're both unsuspecting newbies to the T world.

I know exactly what you mean! I begged my parents for ONE tarantula. Then it became two, then three, and then we found one that needed rescuing... and here we are today! {D

Well, at least with this addiction you get to still keep your teeth and you won't make you smell bad;)

Yeah, there's nothing bad about this addiction. It's a healthy alternative.

If this were anymore addictive we would have a 12 step program.
I went from none to 7 T's and a small colony of Dubia roaches in no time.

Just remember, if they turn off the lights for lack of payment, you've gone too far. lol

Good luck Burntsnow

You think tarantulas are bad....try getting into cigars.:embarrassed:

Tarantulas = Alcohol

Cigars= CRACK!

But, welcome to the world of spiders.

I love this hobby. I got 60 Ts now and ive been keeping for a year now. Im starting on some naturalistic enclosures as of today. Ill probably get hooked on enclosures with nice plants. I am planning on making a crazy enclosure for my T. spinipes "burgundy" when it gets bigger.;P

I know what you mean. I bought my first T Saturday (G rosea) and I'm already trying to track down a G pulchra and possibly a B vagans. And the list is just growing from there lol.

Damien (scoolman) is selling some Pulchra slings. They're healthy and cheap.
