okay...i have found it somewhat frustrating that the best gauge of whether a T is docile/slow, etc. or not is from the www.invertepet.com site. now, while it is very helpful, if he isn't carrying something at the moment, it's useless to my searches.

one particular T which i find very attractive, Bonnetina cyaneifemur is not listed there, but is listed on www.swiftinverts.com.

is there any good place that has information like this on a WIDE variety of Ts?

thanks!

Skadi-

I feel you there - too bad there's no Tarantula Walmart for us online.

i dunno man, i personally find the walmart online site to be almost useless! lol.

i typically end up looking up individual caresheets or looking at certain sites to see what people say. however, not all are terribly helpful, particularly for newer Ts.

i suppose that with many T keepers the docility of the species doesn't matter as much as the looks, size, etc. it's a shame though...i wish more information was readily available.

ah well, maybe one day. at least the board is working on the caresheets eh? :)

actually i found a site on the forums which gave me kind of a suprise...


http://www.krazy8sinvertebrates.com/catalog/

theyre selection is pretty good, prices reasonable, but i have yet to find their shipping cost...i think im just not looking in the right places

hopefully that helps
