I am mazdak. I just turned 18, i have colonies of roaches, some millipedes, crabs, newts, frogs, crayfish, leeches, etc. I have always been interested in these things, as far back as i remember. I couldn't have the heart to harm them though, so nothing that needs to be fed live food (like crickets, mealworms etc). I am interested in finding someone with jerusalem crickets here.

My avatar is Stalin, of course.

Hello....

Hello, I am new to this site and to the Spider ownership, and one of my friends who has a lot of spiders and is already signed up said i should join. So....i dont know really why i have a spider, i was offered one, and for some reason i said yes. So far, i know that it may be a she, she is a G Rosea, and that I may name her Octavia. Thats it so far....this is sad..... :8o

Ello!

Hiya. I'm Brandon, 24 years old, from Pittsburgh, PA and I just purchased my first Tarantula yesterday, a Chilean Rose, which from what I hear is the best first choice. So far, he's doing pretty good.

No T's

Hey, I'm new on here, don't even own any t's, but a friend introduced me to the site and so I'm just looking around. There is a lot more to owning a tarantula than I thought...thanks for showing the rest of us that they're more than just 'creepy-crawlies'. :clap:

Another new guy

Hi, my name is Andreas and I'm 28. I am an orthopaedic nurse at the local hospital here in Östersund (that's sort of in the middle part of Sweden). Growing up in the Middle East I had the great opportunity to catch loads of little yellow scorpions (probably not the safest thing to do when you're 7 or 8). I still like the little monsters though and now have a tiny P. Imperator that won't moult. I'm not as keen on spiders.

Hi,
My name is Ryan and I live in Regina, Saskatchewan.....I've always been a reptile guy but I've always had an interest in arachnids as well. Recently (about a week ago) I had a Aphonopelma seemani kinda dropped in my lap so I'm now a T owner, I look forward to the help I'm sure the forums will provide me.

Ryan.

Greetings from Asia

Sipping my morning coffee I heard a scratching on the screen a few feet from where I sit. :eek: A gigantic spider has poised and posed himself for my appreciation. :) I measured him at 53mm body length and legs front to back at 270mm. :worship:
And of course, no camera! :mad:
A quick search of the web showed him to probably be a Heteropoda maxima, known in Laos but I find no references to them being here in northern Thailand. :confused:

Be all that as it may, I chanced across this forum and since I had to tell somebody somewhere about my beautiful window decoration, the rest is history.

Greetings to all and keep on cherishing our eight legged wonders!
