    A little lightening of the tension from the "other" thread is good for the soul.

    I'm very tempted to post that scene from First Blood where Rambo holds the knife to the sheriff's throat and says in a calm but stern voice "LET IT GO. LET IT GO." Sadly I can't find that clip on YouTube that just includes that bit.

    My child distracted me a couple weeks ago while I was feeding and watering and I left the lid off on my E. murinus. Didn't notice until the next morning. :( That's when I realized a dusty house is a good thing. I tracked spider tracks to the corner of the bedroom and then the dust ran out and the tracks disappeared. Two days later the T was the kitchen sink 3 rooms away when my stepdad went to wash out a coffee cup he got an angry little surprise. She's ok and back in her tank. Lesson learned.

    I really was! Seriously, I was like "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh helllllllllllllllllll" when I realized what had happened. I felt so stupid. Learned not to try and do two things at once when tending to the Ts. Luckily her jaunt into the "wild" did not cause any harm. I have a large house chicken (yes, I said chicken) and an old house cat. If he had found her she would've been a snack.

    I like your sense of humour. Now it would be really unfortunate if they were to actually get out:biggrin:

    I feel like i've been really lucky, i've been keeping 8-9 tarantula slings at any given time for about a year and a half and haven't even had one get close to leaving it's enclosure during feeding or maintenance. There was one time where one moved quickly and I reached for the catch cup to find that I didn't have one by me, that scared me enough so I learned my lesson, always have a catch cup nearby.

    Yea same here. All we gotta do is be careful, and use common sense.

    the first week i had my female 5in. l.c. she ran out and climbed up the wall in the bedroom. luckily she stopped and isn't a biter. i was able to coax her onto my hand and back in her enclosure! phew! she was high enough if she fell she was a goner!
  14. oh man, don't play lol. My H mac just escaped yesterday but luckily my dad managed to wrangle her up for me the same day. That would've been an unfortunate bite!

    I know it's just a 'joke' thread just for talking, and i doubt (and hope) that scenario will happens to you, because IMO you proved to know your facts (you recently re-housed smoothly 'Pokies' and other T's) but an 'OBT' on the loose is bitter sausages.

    Well, if happens you can put this song as theme while chasing that primitive African lovely crazy beast around the room ;)



    - Imagine the 'OBT' singing
