With the restrictions I have, this is the cheapest, easiest, and definitely most fun hobby. Right now, I have 5 tarantulas in amazing-quality acrylic cages. Most are slings, but one is an adult. How much money did I choke over, you ask? Considering that I have 5 new pets that will gradually grow in beauty, value (not like I'm going to sell them, though), and excitement...not much. Not even $350. That's including shipping, cages, tarantulas, miscellaneous decorations, and feeding. Some, well, most people talk about how it's a growing addiction. Although, I love each and every one of my Ts. Now I have a life-lasting memory, many new pets, reusable high-quality enclosures (for future pets), a ton of knowledge about Ts, and pictures of them from (hopefully) every stage of their lives.
