    My name is Jeff, (everyone calls me JeKo). I live in Tarzana, CA which is part of Los Angeles. I moved here a year ago with my boyfriend of soon to be 5 years. We decided to come to california because he is deaf and I wanted to come out here to attend California State University Northridge to get my degree in sign language interpreting. In the middle of all that, I got into scorpions and Ts really quick.
    Oh I forgot to say im 26, born in North Carolina, grew up in Florida, now I live in Los Angeles, go figure. Anyway, just thought I would post a lil about me... {D

    First off, I'm a chick. Apparently the name throws everybody off. I'm 25 and an electrical engineer. I have around 30 tarantula's at this time (expect the number to go up). I also have a bunch of snakes (mostly pythons), 1 cat, and scorpions. If you want the exact listing go digging in the "what I keep" threads.

    I bred crested geckos for a short time, but decided to get out of keeping lizards
    I will be breeding ball pythons as soon as my guys grow up :wicked:

    Hello to All!

    I am a newbie to this board...but not to my favorite "critters". I have always been fasinated by spiders, herps, bugs etc. I live just outside of Los Angeles, CA. My current stock is 1 blue tounge skink and my "prize" an adult T. Blondi. She is a real killer and chows down on mice like they were gumdrops. I got this beauty from a garbage man for BFI. Believe it or not, he found it in a dumpster about a year ago. It had been there at least several weeks...still living in the broken terrarium that was it's home. It has had 2 molts since then and is about 8 inches. I paid the garbage man 10 bucks for it. She is very healthy now and impressive. Look for me to post a pic of it in the near future.

    Hi there!

    Howdy, all! My name is Josh, and I'm a 20-year old university student. Sad to say, I don't have any cute little invertebrates right now. I had a sweet little Chilean Rose in my youth, and I loved her. My mom said she was the best pet we had ever owned: no barking, no scratching, and about a dollar a month to feed. In the last year or so, I've rediscovered the hobby through the internet. I would really like to start a collection soon; problem is, next semester I'm moving into a room in a guy's house (nice house!) and he's not sure yet if he's comfortable with creepie crawlies in the house, no matter how cute they are.

    I'm interested in music (it's my major), dancing badly, singing, listening to wierd alt bands, eating cookies, looking at pretty spiders, and Facebooking cute women. Actually, I just joined this board to meet girls. Is it working yet?

    My ambition is to become a Broadway musical superstar and own an extensive collection of OW tarantulas named after Sesame Street characters. The crowning jewel would be a Goliath Pinktoe named Mr. Smiley.


    EDIT: Just a note: The Rio Grande Gold in the picture on the caresheets here is one of the mose beautiful spiders I've ever seen. I MUST HAVE ONE!
