    ...when someone new is in your home and won't stop staring at something over your shoulder while you're talking to them, and you're honestly perplexed as to what they're so freaked out about. Then you glance behind you and see one of your 'favorites' pressed up against the front of their enclosure, grooming.

    True enough. Don't feel bad - I jumped into the deep end myself. Ask Chad / Michael :D

    Ha! I love that! Happens every now and then when I have people here that check on the radiators, need to get to the roof (entrance to the attic is in my app) and the like. Especially when it's Phaedra making her grand-appearance :D

    It was terrifying, I know they can't live in Michigan but as soon as I woke up I checked all of their cages anyway.

    When the majority of your phone's picture gallery are epiandrois fusillae shots.

    Or you put a dried exo in the dish cupboard because you don't want it to get smashed, then forget you put it there. The next morning you open the cupboard when getting a cup and practically crap your pants because you think your obt is in there.

    Mine corrects aphonopelma to that particular word used to describe an anus. Which is funny because if I curse while using the speech recognition, it censors me o_O

    when you buy 4 55oz Snyders Pretzels jugs from Amazon at $15 each not because you love the pretzel.... well you where i'm going with this. lol they make fantastic enclosures for arboreals and burrowers and the main selling point is the screw on lid. a lot of other similar size products like UTZ cheese balls use a plastic lift off lid like you'd get on a coffee can. needless to say, it's a HUGE box when shipped but thankfully i'm an Amazon Prime member so shipping is free. :biggrin:

    when your grocery bill includes fruits and veggies for your feeder roaches because you plan on gut loading them so you can feed them to your tarantulas.

    Or you buy the medium sized Kraft peanut butter, not necessarily because you like peanut butter, but.....well, you know. The screw top lids are excellent. :D

    I also find that the treats jars from All Living Things works well, especially for arboreals slings.

    I swear my feeders and animals were eating better than me at some point, I was stuck eating ramen noodles while my three types of feeders got organic veggies.

    lol I know what you mean. nothing but organic for my feeders. i get a good deal on organic mangos and I usually buy a dozen at a time sometimes twice a week to feed my colonies and I usually go thru express checkout. i always seem to get the same cashier and she tells me "you must really like mangos. I see you all the time!" The only thing I can say is " You have no idea.". lol
