    I'm new, as of about 5 seconds ago. I have one Rose haired tarantula named Chela that I've had for about a 1 1/2 yrs. She just shed so shes all shiny and pretty again. I really love spiders and I would love to get a Goliath Bird eater.
    So any and all information regarding these giangantic and amazing arachnids would be wonderful. I am also a member of Redtailboa.net and I currently own
    RTB. 1.1.0
    Cornsnake 0.0.1
    Pueblan milk snake. 1.0.0
    Royal(ball) pythons. 0.0.2
    Brown basilisk. 0.0.1

    It was a dark and stormy night in a galaxy far far away...

    I suppose that beginning's a bit over-done.

    My name's Erin and I live in Keller, Texas. I just turned 22 on the 4th of July and am soon to apply to Veterinary College. I've been keeping tarantulas for over three years and am now thinking about a breeding project. Maybe Smithi's since I got a whooooooooooole bunch of 'em. Maybe A. Purpurea's.. who knows.
    I'm very particular when it comes to my tarantulas and the species I keep. I like big beautiful varieties. If they are extremely colorful and gorgeous then I can get over them being only 5" in legspan. But only in that case.

    Some Common Names of the Species I Currently Keep:

    Green Bottle Blue
    Mexican Red Knee
    Mexican Flame Knee
    Mexican Fireleg
    Equadorian Purple (A. purp)
    Giant Black and White (A. Gen)
    Antilles Pink-Toe (He's for sale)

    Some Species I am looking to purchase or trade for:

    Gooty Ornamental
    More Equadorian Purples
    Mexican Orange Beauty

    See you all on the boards,

    Hey there,
    Scorpion enthusiast here. I have one Emperor scorpion and one African Flat Rock scorpion.

    I have a Giant Hairy Scorpion on it's way to me right now, and will be ordering probably a Shiny Burrowing Scorpion very shortly.

    Glad to be here.

  11. Ya know how most women go shoe shopping or redecorate the house when they get totally stressed? I go to the pet store and redesign my critters' tanks. I always kinda wanted a scorpion since I'm a Scorpio and I was having a really bad month so I went to the pet store. The only thing they had that I didn't have and wanted was an Asian Forest scorpion, so I brought her ( and the 21 little babies she was hiding inside, sure she's just fat Mr. store keeper dude). Now I'm addicted. Actually it's worse than that, I'm going to breed her. All her babies died and I'm hoping to find out why in here somewhere.
    My boyfriend wants to build a wall of tarantulas (which freak me out) and I want a wall of scorpions (which freak him out) so I'll be roaming around in here a lot.

    I'm Charnoble, but my close friends call me "THE HULK",

    I am a current student at UC Irvine in Southern California and double majoring in Dance and Astrophysics. I just got my Chilean Rose and have enjoyed watching it sit in the corner for 12 hours, then reposition itself in the corner only to stay for another twelve. I was really excited when I found poop on the tank - good girl. I'm scared to get near it now after reading the bite threads. Time to bath. Adios peeps.

    Hi there. I like all kinds of animals. Ants are some of my favorites.
  14. Hi my name is Trevor and I'm an arachnophilliac. lol

    Hello all I have been collecting tarantulas for about a year now. I have just recently (2 days ago) purchased 4 more tarantulas from what I'm sure to be a dear friend in the long run. In the grand scheme of things our family now has Tarantulas: (A. geniculata, A. seemani, B. albopilosum, B. smithi, N. chromatus, G. rosea, G. Aureostriata, P. murinus) and a Scorpion: (P. imperator).

    What I want to get: A. geroldi, A. versicolor, H. lividum, L. parahybana, P. irminia, and C. fasciatum just to name a few.

    I would also like to thank Martin and Amananda lol sorry I had to, and all the other Presenters/attendees of the 2005 Canadian Arachnogathering. You were all wonderful, friendly, outgoing people. I personally cant wait for the next Arachnogathering, maybe I can stay for the BBQ next time.

    Thanks Again,

    Hello my name is Aaron and I am 20. I'm from Ferndale Washington. I have a emperor scorpion that just had 18 babys and I am looking to get a centipede in the near future. I also have an ant colony and a 55 gallon fish tank full of pirrana. I have raised hissing cockroaches and had some emps in the past. I have been checking out this site for about a week now and I am glad to see that I'm not the only one that likes bugs as pets. I look forward to talking to fellow bug lovers.

    My name is Kevin and I live in St. Louis, MO.
    I had a rosie for about a year several years ago, but just recently began keeping T's again.
    I've been lurking here for a few weeks and thought that I would finally introduce myself.

    Hey, my name is Kelli. I started with a Rose Haired Tarantula and worked my way over to an Emperor Scorpion this last Feb.

    There I was assuming my fat scorp was a male until it kindly started squeezing out babies yesterday. We are up to 13 so far and she is still going. So I figured I need to get on the ball and find out how to raise my babies right.

    Look forward to meeting some of you bug crazies!

    Hi all!!!

    My name is Howard and although I've been a visitor here for quite some time, I only joined yesterday.

    I'm from Hampshire, United Kingdom.

    I have been keeping and successfully breeding Arachnids for about 25 years now (I'm not that old, just started young!!!!)

    Due to work commitments a few years ago, I had to sell my complete collection, but in the past couple of years have returned to it.

    I now try my best to specialise (not always easy as there are so many good'uns out there!!)

    My 'babies' are:

    8" T.blondi (had since a 1.5" sling)
    2x 3" T.blondi
    2x 3" T.apophysis
    4" C.cyanopubesence
    3x A.versicolor

    I like and have always had a soft spot for the 'biggies' temperament doesn't bother me at all.

    Well that's enough from me for now, you are always more than welcome to get in touch for a chat.

    Bye for now :)
