Just had to say that I finally purchased my 1st new T this afternoon!! I am 100% exhausted after putting in so much time and dedication into my research before I bought (including, but not limited to researching breeders/dealers/sellers)....it was well worth the investment on my part I think, as I feel I have made a great choice with the B. Albo. and the dealer I purchased her from. Will keep everyone updated!!

Thanx to everyone on here for all your input and for sharing your experiences good and bad.

Congratulations on your purchase. You won't regret that you researched it. You will thank yourself after you start caring for it and realize that have a jump start over the average buyer.

Yep. Brachypelma albopilosums are fantastic! This is a picture of my girl, Zoe. :)
(You can't tell, but Zo has a freshly caught cricket in her mouth, lol)

Please share some photos of your new T with us!!! :embarrassed: 20170411_222924-01.jpeg

Great choice for a first tarantula, B. Albopilosum was my first tarantula as well.

Be warned. I joined the hobby last year with the thought of just having one T (I got a B Smithi). A year later and I've just bought a second T (G. Pulchra) and about to buy a third!!

Curlyhairs are a great first T, you definitely will not be disappointed. :)

It took you a YEAR to get your next spider? You must have ironclad willpower :eek:

It's interesting how it works. I got back into the hobby in 2015. I bought an adult female LP. I took my time, waited 8-10 months and then bought an adult female Aphonopelma chalcodes. That was some time early 2016. Now it's early 2017...and I have 18. It's ridiculous.

Everybody has said this somewhat but I am going to be very blunt:

Don't fight the urge to get new additions, just accept it because the more you fight it, the stronger the urge will get. It's like giving up food all together and fighting the urge to eat.

agreed, tried not to buy spiders for a few months, and now im placing an order for 7 more..
woulda been cheaper if i bought one or two instead of fighting it..
