i just got done feeding my A. geniculata, and little bitty B. albopilosum for the first time since their arrival yesterday, and i have to say that was one of the coolest things i have ever seen. the A. genic pounced on 3 crickets and my little 1" B. albopilosum took two small ones like a champ. I CAN NOT WAIT TO GET MORE. oh yeah, and my rock (G. rosea, still has not eaten in 3 weeks). OMG this is soo freaking cool. i sound like a little kid, but i don;t care. I'M HOOKED{D {D {D {D {D {D

That is cool to know!! My rosehair i had use to eat about 5 or more crickets in 2 weeks because i guess she was hungry!! Some of them eat while others wont maybe it was the 2 weeks things?? :? But she was cool to watch she'd snag one up and when another was near by she'd snatch it up 2 kinda looked like a OBT or Cobalt Blue pounching on prey!!

If you get it real bad, next thing you know you will be buying other inverts too. Just a warning, stop now or you can never go back. lol.

Yep, the addictive nature of this hobby is just plain scary... i started just 3 months ago and have turned one 2" C. crawshayi into 49 various T's and slings!!! :eek: Only about 20 bigger T's and the rest are slings of various sizes. Oh yeah, i have 6 more slings on order. Just wait until your babies start molting - that's way cool too. And then when they get big enough to sex from their molt - that's beyond way cool! :cool:

I too am hooked ! I got my first spyder 3 weeks ago,and now have added 3 more!I have a Mexican Redknee,Costa rican Zebra,huge Oklahoma brown and a Rosie.The hard part for me is that I live in Alaska and all the local pet shops just carry rose hairs.The only way I ended up with the Zebra was because they got it in a shipment by accident,took them all day to figure out what kind it was!Now if I want anyhing else its going to be my mail!

For me it went like this:
1 turns to 2
2 turns to 3
3 turns to 6
6 goes back to 3
3 goes to 8
8 goes to 11.

You can't stop no matter what you do its not that you aren't happy with your T's its that there is 800 different species.:eek:
