    Hi there! I’m a new T keeper and an ex arachnophobic. I got my B. hamorii and B. boehmei a week ago, after almost 4 months of studying species and tarantulas in general. I bought them unsexed and I’m trying to sex them. By the way, they won’t be alone for too long, and i‘m already searching for...

    Introduction since I was told to do this?

    Hello, I'm Gray, and I came here to research how to take care of a tarantula. My brother got one for his birthday when he was younger, but it has been left completely ignored for years. I couldn't help but feel sad for it, so here I am. If I am doing anything wrong, please tell me. I haven’t...

    Hi there, everyone! My name's Rebecca. Just joined this forum today, and I'm very happy to meet fellow tarantula enthusiasts.

    Hello from Canada!

    Hi! I am quite new to the hobby and forum, I started keeping my first tarantula back in October 2019, a Tliltocatl albopilosum (Nicaraguan form), her funny diva-like personality won me over. She refuses to use the hide I provided and often simply hides her water dish if not burry it- I ordered a...
