    Newbie Introduction

    Hi, all. I am not only new to this board, I am new to tarantulas. I am just looking into owning my first one and am still in the mode of gathering information on the proper care and feeding of. I know I eventually want a Cyriopagopus sp. "blue" (Singapore Blue), but since the literature suggests this is not a first-timer's spider and intend to work my way up to having one. So far, I have the housing and supplies for an arboreal tarantula, and I've been looking at the Avicularia metallica (Metallic Pinktoe) or the Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (Green Bottle Blue). Any advice would be greatly appreciated, but I think if I poke around this site long enough, I'll probably pick up some great tarantula-care tips to help me make my choice.

    Howdy Y'all!

    My name is Tom. I've kept T's now since about '93. I live just East of Dallas in the small but sprawling town of Rockwall. I'm married, 37 yrs old and together my 5yr old, Garrett, we have a collection of 'happy' tarantulas (if you know what I mean). We like to sit down and handle ours.
    I love my arachno-challenged wife, collecting antiques, politics and doing 'guy' stuff with my son and yes, I am an arachno-haulic!

    Hi, my name is Mark. Crowd answers "Hi Mark"

    I am addicted to tarantulas. It has been a few weeks since I last purchased a tarantula. However, I keep thinking about them. It is a daily struggle.

    Seriously though, I have been keeping T's for many years now. I am 40, the father of three great kids, divorced and an avid sailor. I have been racing sailboats on Lake Michigan for over 20 years. One of the things I enjoy about keeping tarantulas is studying and learning about them. It is a great diversion from the mundane aspects of everyday life.

    Hello everyone!

    hi there,
    I'm Bre and i own a curley haired tarantula. He's my best little buddy. The reason i signed up on this website was to get some help with him. He molted last night and he appears to have broken his leg in the prosess. So i just came to see if anyone can help us. I would be heart broken if he didnt make it. :(

    VoodooFuneral Arachnosquire Old Timer

    Hi, I'm Brenna, and I enjoy poking dead things with a stick, pointing out ugly babies, and being the best little neighbor from hell that I can be.
    Joking (or not) aside...I turn 30 on Monday. :eek: I live in the "South" (not on purpose) :D with my recent husband, long-time friend, with our menagerie of creatures including cats, dogs, Siamese Fighting Fish (NOT for fighting), :shame: a snake, and 5 Tarantulas so far.
    I sell stuff on eBay sometimes and love to write, read (yup, I can do both), and paint for fun. Landscaping, gardening, & planting trees is much fun too. I'm a Gemini with Scorpio rising...which I think translates into "manic depressive with A.D.D." :wall: {D
    My hobbies include the "move the letters around, and change the phrase on that sign to something funnier" game. That's it for now- always wash behind your ears, and don't forget to recycle. Take care! :)

    misfitsfiend Arachnobaron Old Timer

    I'm Bruno, 20 YO, I've spent a little more than half my life here in the U.S. and little less than half in Brazil. I was born in Brazil, and I love it there, I love going back. I have yet to master both english and portuguese so excuse any misspellings or gramatical errors(thats what happens when you move back and forth all the time).
    I play music, and collect inverts and reptiles. Aside from my fiance and long time girlfriend those are my biggest passions. I love older rock music and heavy metal, and I'm pretty open minded when it comes to music. I have an obssesion with horror movies and just the evil, dark, horror type of theme. I enjoi movies, and a good show at a good venue. And i think thats more than anyone of you really needed to know...

    Hey Bre... if you peep around thru the questions and discussions, you'll find a lot of info about difficult moults... and also a lot of folks who have had similar experiences. If your little one isn't bleeding/leaking chances are he'll be just fine. The 2nd T I ever got (he's an ancient G rosea) came to me with his first leg completely gone... he regenerated it and has been wonderful ever since :)
