Welcome! What he said above. ^^^

:D
Welcome aboard Anastasia. This is absolutely the best place to learn about tarantulas and other critters. Forget care sheets, YouTube videos, etc. Learn your info here. If you read enough threads, you'll probably rarely even have to ask a question ;) But if you do, that's perfectly fine!! Folks here mean well and want to help!
Thank you both. I appreciate the supportiveness. <3

Hello all,

New to the forum and to the hobby.

From South of England, on the cusp of the New Forest and I have 2 to so far.

A 1.5cm Brachypelma Auratum and a 3cm Neostenotarsus 'Guyana'.

I was told by the shop these are decent for beginners.

Looking forward to exploring the forum more and learning the best way to keep the little pretties.

Hello folks!

Lifelong spider fanatic, but now at 22 I am for the first time preparing to own my first spider, a Phiddipus Regius, and I am very excited. I want to learn all I can about being a good spider pet parent!

The profile photo is a needlefelted wool sculpture I made of a Hyllus Giganteus jumping spider. The username "Icey" is from my initials (I.C.) which you can use to refer to me if you'd like.

Also, if anyone ever sets up a discord for spider-keeping, I'd be quite interested in joining.
Glad to be here! :D:spider:

Lurking for a while, learning about centipedes and the like as I keep a few. Finally joined to participate, though I'm pretty shy.

Hello!
My name is Henrik and I have been lurking around here for a while. Kept exotic animals as a kid but been away from it since. Last year my 5-year old son got some walking sticks. I enjoyed scapeing their enclosure and things escalated… Got a mantis (Heirodula sp.) and dubias to feed it. Started to watch tarantula-channels on Youtube, feeling a bit afraid of the giant hairy spiders.

But things escalated even more…

Today two Ts arrived, one Caribena Versicolor and one Dilocothele diamantensis, around 1 cm in size. Housing them went well (the versicolor was taking a trip up my hand and arm though.. 😍) and they are now happily munching on a dubia nymph each.

The now six year old loves the small monsters already and the 11-year old daughter (who would ”move out if you get a spider”) think they are really cute.

And I Iook at more spieces…

Hi everyone! I'm Vanessa from Germany. I'm a passionate pet-keeper but my usual territory are vertibrates, especially birds and rats. However I only recently fell in love with tarantulas and decided to get one for myself after a proper time of research. So yesterday I brought home a young L. Parahybana and am now excited to start my journey into invert keeping! :)

Hi, I've had my first tarantula for a few weeks but I've been researching for months and all my questions seemed to bring me back to this forum so I figure I'd make an account. I have a chaco goldenknee and he's maybe like 1.5 inches leg span, also I don't know if he's a he, but I call him he. His name is Fluffy and he is perfect
