Cool.
I guess I gotta go find a science teacher and hitch a ride with them to the next seattle show!

Edit - That's despicable, about the spiders. She could have given it some sub at the very least.

Are you talking about the guy with the Tokay geckos and the handful of snakes? There was also an A. avicularia next to those that looked to be in a death curl. The lady sitting in the chair isn't actually the vendor - she handles the other side, but yeah.. I agree, it's sad.

There seems to be at least one vendor like that at every show I've been too. But Taylor is better than the other two Michigan shows, especially for spiders.

when i used to work at reptiles plus i had to feed the spiders, the ones on display were fine but in the stock room there were boxes full of little tubs with a tarantula in each, the rose hair box was the worse always found a couple of dead ones, was a shame to see it.

just wish shops that sold tarantulas would set them up like they do the reptiles and snakes but around here they all keep them in tubs untill there sold.
