Which are you? Keeper? Breeder? Both?

What part of PA?

I'm originally from NYC! Recently moved to the Poconos!

I'm near philly. I'm a collector but also looking for local breeders.
Nice! Obviously we are dealing with Covid-19 @ the moment and God knows for how much longer but how are the Expos here in the Keystone State? I've only been to the one in White Plains, NY since I was born and raised in Queens, NYC.

Just for curiosity sake.. what were your first 2 T's?!

Mine were a G. porteri bought as a G. rosea at the time and an O. schiodtei known as C. schiodtei at the time.

I cant believe how much success I actually had with the schiodtei being a novice owner at the time. I was able to raise it from a sling all the way until it hooked out and died.

Now I am only keeping a variety of NW's.

Grammostola rosea and Cyriopagopus lividum

At one point I had around 80 ts but backed off big time in the last 5-7 years only leaving one balfouri left. I have a few coming this week and a balfouri communal to set up when they are ready to ship.

I live in western PA. I currently only have one Tarantula, but a fair amount of reptiles. I know you aren't really near my area, but my local expos seem to have a lot of inverts, as well as a few vendors that specialize in venomous reptiles, I don't think the show here is worth traveling too far for, but if you are ever in the Pittsburgh area and its going on its worth peeking into.

I'm located about 45 minutes from Eire, Iv only just got my first two T's about 3 weeks ago.
A grammostola pulchra 1.5"
And a Tliltocatl albopilosum .75"

I do plain on getting a lot more T's and hopefully breeding in the coming years.
Iv really had a blast with these two little fellows (Unsexed XD).
