    US Looking for some LP slings

    At a reptile convention in october, a vendor was selling freshly hatched (well, probably second instar) LP slings 1 for $5 or 3 for $10. I bought one, and lost it to a bad molt, and regret not having picked up another pair. A show-special price probably, but I was hoping I could get 2 or 3 for...

    looking for a cheap red runner starter colony

    **Closed** As the title says, I'd like to start a red runner colony, ideally at least 100 individuals with at least some breeding females. I'm sure at least some of you have a strong feeder colony you wouldn't mind pulling from to help out a fellow tarantula and/or roach hobbiest Update: I...

    Review of ApexInverts (forum member)

    I realise there is a review for the website, but I dealt with him strictly through the forum, so I figured it wouldn't be the worst thing to make a thread specifically for that. I bought an A. versicolor from him back in May, I've been putting off a bunch of reviews for a while, but he deserves...

    Is there a market for flipping slings?

    That is to say, if I were to buy a few slings, raise them for a few months to a year, and resell them, is there a market for that? Mostly, I think, what I'm asking is would the breeders I bought from take offense to that? I'd love to be able to have experience with tons of different species...

    Review of Thistles (forum member)

    There doesn't seem to be a review of Thistles here, and there definitely should be. I just purchased 3 spiderlings from her, anf I've had an overwhelmingly positive experience with her. She was talkative and friendly throughout the entire purchasing process, her communication was great, even...

    Curious about enclosures for bulk slings.

    This question is mostly for people who breed and possibly for people who collect in bulk. How do you guys house your slings? Even deli cups seem like they'd get to be a hassle when you're sitting on hundreds of them, they'd just take up too much space. Do you sacrifice the T's comfort and put...

    Is there a brick and mortar store that carries those round screen vents?

    You know the ones, we've all seen them. The round 2 inch or so screen vents that make a custom enclosure look so much more professional. The kind that look like this. Is this a standard HVAC or plumbing part I could walk over to my local hardware store and pick up? I've got a few enclosures I'd...

    US anything going on next month in central Florida?

    I'm going to be in Davenport (central Florida, between Orlando and tampa, but if you know Florida reptile shows you probably already know that) between the 6th and 11th next month, figured I might scope out a reptile show or something similar I could pick up a new T at. I saw repticon will be in...

    Is this a female, based on a lack of epiandrous fusillae? (microscope images)

    My P. metallica has thoroughly destroyed both molts she's (hopefully she) had with me. I'm trying to identify her sex based on the identification of epiandrous fusillae, but the only website that goes into any detail on the subject looks like the pictures on it were taken in 2001. I suspect...

    Obligitory instroduction: Glad to be here

    Hey, About ten years ago, I worked at a pet store that carried tarantulas. I know what you're thinking, but bear with me. At this pet store there worked an old man who looked like a goblin, and he knew his ****, but more importantly, he was the guy in charge of training me on the non-mammal...
