I started raising tarantulas in 2003 at that point I had bought a tarantula every week. One of the first was a female Aphonopelma seemanni. I kept her for approximately a year and sold her to a friend which got him into tarantulas old world arboreals to be specific, he sold the seemanni to a mutual friend which got him into tarantulas... anyway he entered it into a competition (for looks and attitude, not races or things of that nature) and won three different species. He won a Heteroscodra maculata and I forget what the other two were but he still has all of them except the seemanni which escaped on him and was found dead a couple days later.
