This christmas?!?! I started with a Goliath bird eater July 29 2010 and have limited myself to about one purchase a month. That means on average I get about two a month. No matter how hard I try fate always buys me a new tarantula. I'm not joking. I tried to stop and what do you know my grandma buys me a tarantula. I need to go to rehab or something. :8o

Next week, when I buy the subadult B.boehmi and two P.metallica slings I swear I will be done. 13 is more than enough!

Our first purchase was two juvies, avic. versicolor and avic. amazonica, on new years eve to start the new year off with a hobby that would bring me and my boyfriend closer. Now we have decided to collect the entire Avicularia family. So if anyone knows where I could find the rest please let me know...

I live with my boyfriend and we like to keep all our Ts together. makes it much easier to take care of them and keep the humidity and temp right.

I'd like a female of
P. Regalis(I have)
P. Irminia(I have 2 slings, fingers crossed)
Chilobrachis fimbriatus
Avicularia versicolor(also have 2 slings, fingers crossed)
Lampropelma nigerrimum
Avicularia minatrix(a pair of these actually)
Poecilotheria subfusca
Avicularia diversipes
And prolly a Nhandu chromatis

ALMOST FORGOT! Like 5 poecilotheria metallica! :D :D

I just keep T's for fun. I like the boldly patterned stuff.:D
Once I get that, I think I'm done :p
