I don’t think so! I had been thinking of adding another but I had a house fire last summer and was glad I only had to worry about the one T plus my cat. Now I’m scared to take on more than I can carry in an emergency :(
Sorry to hear about the house fire.
Get multiple slow growing slings or dwarfs(Cyriocosmus sp or similar) and keep them in a open top storage box of some sort that way you will be able to grab them as one.If there is desire there always will be a way. Lol

This is what I do with the storage box (well, an old fat ball feeder tub) it's great for sling/juvie care and also saves my back a little.

This little cutie is nearly a year old, even at this age, they show signs of the temperament they're famous for.
Also, heck no! Please don't think you said something wrong!

They also give me something to look forward to in the long term too, especially the slings, I'm not just going from day to day but now I have something to look forward to in years time.
Though, I love the idea of an Asian fossorial therapy tarantula. :D
Oh it's adorable! So tiny and pink!

Sorry to hear of the fire. Did it make the news as I'm sure I saw something about a cat and a tarantula getting rescued by firefighters?

It did! Everyone got out ok, but the news crews were all super excited to get a photo of my tarantula. Here’s the post I made: https://www.tarantulaforum.com/thre...wly-escapes-structure-fire.24496/#post-154282
Isn't there a famous film studio in Emeryville (Pixar I think)?
That's where I need to live. my surname is Emery! ha ha
Glad everyone and everything you love is safe. Whenever I talk about my Ts, it always creates a lot of attention. Especially when I say I have over 200.

Yep Pixar was walking distance to my old spot! I’m back in Oakland now though.
