    New to the forum!

    Hey, not a new keeper but a new member :)

    Hey guys! So I guess to start I am from Canada and moved to Ireland in 2018, I got my first T years ago and he was an avic avic. I now have a T. Blondi and GBB with many more spiders to come.

    New T owner, scared I’m doing something wrong.

    Hello! I got a pink toe tarantula yesterday. It came home with me in a plastic container, and i set the container in its new enclosure so it could make its way out when it wanted to because i didn’t want to stress it out any more than it already had been. It’s tucked itself in the corner of the...

    G pulchripes vs B hamorii vs T albopilosus

    I'm still trying to choose my first tarantula, and I am squarely stuck between these three. I would get all three, but due to my living situation I can only have one. Which species would you recommend for a college junior living in a small dorm? I plan to start off with a sling from Fear Not Ts...

    A. Seemanni male or female?

    My T hasn’t molted with me yet so I’m still waiting to check that. I’m thinking male but I call it a she so I want some verification. Thanks!

    Grammostola Pulchripes or Aphonopelma Seemanni??

    Somebody please help me identify my tarantula! I’ve had her for a couple of months now and I want to say she’s a Grammostola Pulchripes but, I’m not sure. Her name is Hestia. Please help me out!!!

    Hi everyone!

    Hello, my name is Jill. I already have an account on arachnoboards, but this forum seems to have a really good community of tarantula owners! I only have one tarantula that I've had for a couple years now, but I'm thinking of getting more. The T that I have right now is just your regular every...

    So nice to be here :-)

    Thanks to @Phil for recommending this as an alternative forum :-) Having had a scan through the site, I’d like to introduce myself and say hey! Having kept reptiles for many years I finally branched out into the world of tarantulas and more recently, scorpions. Though I kept a secret curly...
