    Hey to all...
    I had a strange 1st experience yesterday. After working all day, I came home to find a mature male Avic Avic who decided he would have a POST-ultimate molt! Little <poo poo>!! Well, after a little surgical procedure, he is fine. However, he had already ripped off a pedipalp and one of his legs. He was stuck on one side and started to harden, needless to say, he appears as if he's a minor stroke, but getting around his home ok. We will see. ???? Any advise?? I will post personal info about us later!

    hm. i'm 23 (i'm pretty sure...it's late). i'm starting my final year as an electrical engineering student and am currently very excited because a) i just got hired at Jet Propulsion Laboratories for the summer and b) for my senior project, i get to build a home-made Segway. I've been been interested in inverts/herps for a while, but am just now getting to the point where it's fiscally appropriate to keep my own. i don't have many now, but, after spending the past month or so reading about all the really amazing t's and scorps out there, i think i'll get quite a few.

    more about me....um, i really like my old toys still [transformers, legos(i really want the Ferrari Enzo lego set), etc] and i read more than just about anyone i know. atm, i'm a (much) bigger math dork than i am an invert dork, but that could change.

    oh, here's sort of what i look like.

    Hi, I'm Sebastien Van Hoorebeke , i'm 20 and live in Belgium and study Psychology. I've been interested in Arachnids since i started watching NGC at the age of 14 but i haven't been able to acquire one while i live in my parents house :wall: but i'm moving out soon to my own place and i will start with some scorps then. I'm thinking of getting a Hadrurus arizonensis or a Smeringurus mesaensis, i still have to make up my mind :)

    I'm offcourse planning once i'm feeling comfortable around scorps (not handling wise but security wise comfortable :rolleyes: ) to try to get a Hottentotta jayakari salei (they look amazing imo) even tho i don't know if they are available :)

    Well thats about it.

    Hey there, Im Refnulf from Malaysia and I have been reading numerous threads on the arachnoboards for the past week or so and I have learnt alot about tarantulas {D Anyway, I decided to register today because I will be acquiring a Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula on Saturday :wicked: Well, a spiderling but I hope that it'll be alright with me till it grows up a little. It's about 2cm legspan.

    I am new to tarantulas and had no clue whatsoever about them a week or so ago but I think I have an idea on what to do and where to go for help if I ever need it. The dealer that's selling me the spiderling is a friend and he has about 600+ tarantulas. Most of em are wildcaught and he's been a ton of help as well with the amount of questions I've been asking him over the last couple of days.

    Anyway, I'd appreciate any information about rearing spiderlings although I've already read what I could find online. I thought I'd start with a docile taratula first before moving on to the tarantula that I really like (the King Baboon) :clap: Might be a while before I'm experienced enough to handle him.

    All in all, great to be here and I think you guys are very experienced in this field. I've gone through a ton of threads and have been very well informed about Ts :) You guys rock.

    Anyone with advice,

    Hi, my name is Jay. I am interested in purchansing some tarantulas, but I'm not sure what type to start with. I'll probably start off with five. Should I make them all the same kind, if not what kind should I choose. I want something docile, but I prefer an active dangerous one over a harmless one that does nothing. So far it looks like the pink toes, mexican red knee's, the rose hairs, and the curly hairs are what I'm aiming at. What do you think?

    old bugger new to forum

    Glad to find this forum! I'm 41 and have been buggin since I can remember. I have always been interested in reptiles, amphibians, insects and arachnids. It has always been fascinating for me to sit and watch these animals. Even plants are cool to me. But a plant has to be kind of weird and unusual for me to be interested in it. I like to road hunt at night for arthropods and snakes or anything interesting crossing the road. Even though I have this interest, I have never been "hard-core" about it. I only like to have 2 or 3 things at a time. Right now I have a Scolopendra heros heros I found in W. tx. (I live in Cedar Park Tx.), 4 Vinegarones, two Hognose snakes (along with 6 Hognose snake eggs!), and one Texas Alligator lizard. I had three Texas Alligator lizards but let 2 escape. These are neat lizards. I let a gravid female get lose. Two of the Vinegarones I have are captive breed. That was interesting to watch. I had the mother Vini in a fish bowl 3/4ths full of dirt, so I could see through the glass and watch the babies hatch. They were in there about a year! I let the rest go in my backyard. I was looking for an answer to a problem I am having with centipedes I catch. I have had several castaneiceps and heros centipedes but they only last several months. Then they die. It looks like they get mites and then they get weak. I know to give them plenty of water. That's not the problem. Maybe I am keeping it too moist? Anybody else have this problem before. The mites first colonize the soft body parts until there is no more room. Then, eventually they cover about half the surface area of the pede. I think they came from a container of meal worms I had. Just don't know. I am keeping the pede I have now at a lower humidity and seems to be doing ok so far. Just wondered if anybody else has had a mite problem with their pede. I like to post pictures but my FTP software has a problem right now. I will work on that. I don't think there are any publications about how long Vini's live. I'm going to see how long I can keep these alive. Already 2 years old. Other than that, I'm pretty boring. Ha! Well, other hobbies: Guitar..1977 Les Paul..YEA! (finally learned Stairway to Heaven), like restoring old stuff and like to think about winning the lottery.
