Late on the uptake here, but here goes.

Carrots are vicious! They do some serious harm to humans believe it not. A friend of mine who awaits for me in Valhal chipped a tooth whilst eating a raw carrot. May their memory live on in my user name.

I understand, the last time I tried to cut a carrot...

So the story behind my username is all at once adorable, hilarious, and kinda heroic. Buckle up kids it's going to be a fun ride....
Ever since I was a child my mother was terrified of spiders. Regardless of type, deathly terrified. So one day when I was about 10 my mother paid me $20 to knock down this egg sack that was in the corner of our dining room ceiling. I knocked it down with a broom and it exploded right on my chest. I have been intolerant of spiders ever since.
Fast forward to now... I'm 28, still intolerant of most spiders. My girlfriend and I live in the desert of southern Colorado, and she loves tarantulas. If you've guessed why I'm writing this post and why I'm even on this forum don't spoil it (yet) 😂
For her birthday I started to research local non-terrifying arachnids that I could WC as we don't have the money required for a proper home for the exotic fuzzy murder machine. So a local A. hentzi was to be my target. I've read they're easy to care for and a relatively chill trantula.
It took me two days to find not one but two. They now sleep 3 feet from the foot of our bed in a 64qt see-through tote. I'll be posting more about them elsewhere don't you worry, I've lots of questions.

It's a username I used to use pretty much everywhere at the time, but I had discarded it pretty much everywhere else some seven years ago. It is a relic of a bygone era.

Also, AB's renaming options are paid tier and I'm a cheapskate.

I've always had pets of many different categories, and have had all sorts of feeder insects around the house, including a thriving discoid colony (gave it away once my dragon decided they aren't food), but hadn't had any pet "bugs". Decided this year to start small with a couple of jumping spiders (which I don't have yet - I'm just starting to gather info, set up habitats and whatnot). I also love mantids and millies, and since I'm starting with "gateway spiders", who knows what else I'll end up with later! 😂 So "going buggy" seemed appropriate, and of course '21 is self-explanatory.
PS - my profile pic is a tiny wild jumper who visited me at my work lunch spot.

never used this username before but thought it would be fitting for this site. My username is pronounced "spee-dreys" and it's how I refer to my tarantulas. like "oop gotta water the speidres" or "hey speidres, y'all hungry?" that kind of thing lol. yeah I talk to my animals a lot
