Excellent choice for a first!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

Welcome Henrik!! This is the place to be for good advice!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…
