Lol. There are just so many terms/acronyms that get tossed around: LP, GBB, pokie, sling, gravid, OBT, instar, etc, etc, etc.

I was just wondering if there is a dictionary available instead of just doing boring, time consuming, and often frustrating searches. Maybe it would be a good sticky thread, kind of like a tarantula keepers Wikipedia.

Sometimes searching this forum for small names, acronyms etc is hard however to consolidate much of the data and questions/responses made over the course of the forums there is a sticky that has many great thread leads to various things you'll hear asked here a lot.

You can view this sticky @ http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=145454

Also, within that thread, are some of the more common thrown around acronyms and it's chock full of other great information.

Have a read and spread the word and while it's no dictionary of common terms as Chris has on his website (more consolidated) I feel everyone should read the thread and it's various links to some great info!

Cheers,
