Hi! I'm Amber! I'm 32. I currently live in Oakland, California. I'm pretty new to the hobby. I got my first tarantula, a GBB, in February. And I recently got a pamphobeteus sp. mascara, named Chicken Nugget. My other hobbies include knitting, crocheting, sewing, and baking. I've already learned a ton lurking here, so I figured why not join?

Hey everyone! It’s been a loooong time, I joined this community in 2009. After some time I became inactive, and once I no longer owned any arachnids I stopped hopping on all together. I’m excited to be back and around link minded people, I will be getting another T soon! And fingers crossed, a jumping spider!

Hello, my name is William. Currently my inverts consist of two species of cockroaches. Blaptica Dubia and Gromphadorhina Portentosa. I'm planning on getting a Tarantula sometime in the future. So, I'm here to learn as much as I can. Thank you.

Hey everyone I just started keeping tarantulas this year even though I should have started last year, ants are my main hobby since they are easy to take care of and you can catch queens outside to start your collection but that’s only because one day I was watch g exotic lairs and I saw a ants Canada video which made me just get caught up in all the ant keeping and stuff I never decided to get a tarantula until now because they cost, I figured out my local pet store which wasn’t a chain pet store had a avicularia avicularia which I heard was a good beginner I did my research and because I kept ants and i just literally spent good money just on some harvester ants I got a avic now here we are I have a avic now which was very hard to get since my mom hates spiders and she just ate her first meal in her new home yesterday and she ate again today which is around three crickets already she is in a big enclosure which I will probably never have to rehouse her out of because it’s huge for her, well it’s great to finally be a tarantula keeper.

Thanks!

Hey All,

My son has recently developed a fascination with tarantulas. We have a very old rose haired (who minds her own business) and my husband has previous experience with pink toed tarantula, so we are hoping to find him one nearby. (Ottawa, ON CANADA) No idea where to start our search, so open to any suggestions you might have, while still respecting the forum rules. Thanks!

Hello!

My name is Shon and I am an artist and animal enthusiast from SoCal. I’m 21, vegan, and a big nerd all around (I love anime, kaiju, tokusatsu, comics, etc). I was formerly an entomology student and volunteered for many years at the Aquarium of the Pacific as an education specialist (and partly as an animal caretaker). I have a passion for invertebrates, fishkeeping, and reptiles. I’m pretty good at invertebrate taxidermy and am slowly working my way up to larger and more varied specimens.

My current pets include:

- 20g fish tank with 2 male African dwarf frogs (Buddy and Pal) and a female betta (Swift)
- 2 Madagascar hissing roaches (Male and female, currently unnamed)
- A male leopard gecko (Moby)
- A dubia roach colony and a mealworm colony (feeders)
- Green lynx spider (we may release her where we found her if we can’t give her the care she deserves)

I am living with my girlfriend, who has:

- 1 dumbo rat (Gunter) and 2 dumbo rex rats (Timmy and Tofu)
- A female cherry head tortoise (Dash)
- Bold jumping spider (We are getting one within the week)

Animals I have cared for and interacted with closely in the past ranges widely from small snakes and inverts to 11ft sharks and other incredible animals from my time at the Aquarium. I plan on adopting a lot of pets when I’m older and more financially stable, and I hope to help instill a sense of respect and understanding for these animals in more and more people as I broaden my online presence. I’m still a beginner, but I’m learning as much as I can and would love to interact with the people here to both gain and spread knowledge.

If you’d like to see my art, my full gallery is on Deviantart: https://www.deviantart.com/shon2

And if you’d like to stay in contact with me elsewhere, I also post art/ browse Twitter pretty frequently too: https://mobile.twitter.com/SharkyShon2

I’m also on the roach forums if you’re a user too! I like to mostly read, but sometimes I talk about taxidermy: https://www.roachforum.com/profile/13540-shon2/

Thank you if you’ve read this far, and I hope all of you are having a wonderful day ✌

Hi, my name is Sandy. I’m extremely new to the world of invertebrates! after setting up a small mealworm farm I rediscovered my forgotten childhood fascination for these creatures and have been eyeing the bug terrariums with increased astonishment of all these cool critters. I live in the Netherlands and for now we own a cat, mealworms, carnivorous plants, and a few orchids. Sounds like another cool invert would really liven up the place!

Thank you! For sure, this place is huge!

If I wanted to ask advice on creating a mixed species terrarium, what wiuld be the best subforum to do this in?
Probably in the Insects and Invertebrate forum https://arachnoboards.com/forums/insects-other-invertebrates-arthropods.18/

but as a heads up mixed terrariums generally don’t work well, as individual species care can vary greatly between different orders, families, and genera. but creating a thread in it will yield you information on what specifically will or won’t work together.

Thanks, I appreciate your advice! And I can definitely see how that could be a challenge, learning about all of that is the fun part. Looking forwards to it :)

And we have a sometimes very under utilized search function on here by new members, that can be used to find information a lot faster and more self sufficient for learning about care than posting a question and waiting for someone to get back to you. Get to know the search function on here!
