So, after being the owner of an emperor scorp for over a year (she died of old age only 2 weeks ago, we don't know how old she was when I got her), I decided to get a tarantula.
After reading up like crazy and preparing the best I could (these boards were a great help), I brought home a beautiful little B. albiceps yesterday. I already love the amazing little creature to bits!

Also looking to get a new scorpion, feels sad to see the empty terrarium just standing there (resisting the urge to get another T in it, haha).

Anyway, hello to you all from a Swedish girl in Norway *waves* :D

I had to part with all my brachy's due to a hypersensitivity to the hairs... But after seeing your B.albiceps, I sure miss mine! They were one of my favorites!

Congrats and Welcome to the addiction. :clap:



If you are new to T' ownership all together, I suggest you look over the sticky posts at the top of the boards... There is a ton of info that can answer some of your questions you may have.

Mycket bra val:) Du har också Phalagorn´s Svenska kryp forum som är väldigt bra, om du kan läsa svenska:p

Good choice of theraphosid, i regret a little that i sold my B. albiceps

welcome to the boards! I'll tell you from experience that tarantulas are addictive. I got ONE to go to college with, and within a few months, I've got 4! You'll love it here!

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

And yeah, the addiction is becoming clearer to me, haha. Guess I have to move to a bigger place :D
The hairs don't seem to bother me too much actually, seems I can count myself lucky for that. Got a fair dose the first day since the guy at the pet store was too scared to get it himself :rolleyes:
