Anyone who posts on here from the UK?

I live up in manchester, anyone near here?

There are only a few places I have found in manchester which deal with T's and they have very little in stock :(

Anyone know of any decent shops specialising in T's in the NW? Or know of any decent and reliable mail order companies in the UK?

Also, anyone live near me who knows about breeding T's - I would be interested in buying some spiderlings and some advice on how this is done.

Damn, I was warned before I got into T's that it was addictive, now im hooked, All the lizards I had on my wish list seem to have been overtaken by MUST HAVE T's :)

Ah well,

Stu.

i'm in kent :)

most of my t's i buy mail order from peope in the hobby or suppliers.

if you check out the bulltein board on the british tarantula socieities site you can find quite a lot of t's for sale. Also they have a link to many breeders too

Me in Wales too.

Buying from Europe (specifically Germany) seems to be the way forward.

Nearly all my T's are mail order these days :)

i've considered buying from germany as i'm seen a lot species we don't see here often availible from people there. But always put off because it's so far away.

I have ordered from Germany once and from The Netherlands three times. From the Netherlands the package arrived in three days by regular mail and in two days by express mail.

I'm in Manchester (uni) and Leicester (home). There's a place which does a few T's in Manchester near the Apollo theatre in Stockport, but they're mainly adults and I prefer slings/juvs, so I just buy my crickets from there.

Most of my babies have been ordered over the internet, except two which I bought from an excellent reptile/exotics shop near me in Leicester. Like Lopez said, buying from places like Germany seems to be the way forward now. They're reasonably priced and will ship to the UK no probs.
