Check out Bach Ma Breedings too. Never bought from them, but know people who have who had good experiences. I believe they only breed old worlds. Plus they are here in the UK.

I can personally recommend @Phil and @T-Baby.

Think everyone has shut up shop temporarily though :(

If you're interested in European tarantulas, I think there are 2 families. Chaetopelma (Greece and Cyprus) and Ischnocolus. (Spain, Italy, Portugal). Maybe there are more but these are the genera I've heard of . @m0lsx has one. I think it may be a Chaetopelma olivaceum. Knowing m0lsx, he'll be able to share some interesting info and facts as he's a pretty thorough researcher of the species he's keeping :)

The snail muncher is a Phormictopus ( South American) only European species available in the hobby I believe is the C olivaceum. Ours recently moulted but still buried.

Yeah, they sound horrid! Lol
I've seen slings advertised and they were G. pulchra type prices. Think they're from somewhere in South America? I've heard they will eat the usual feeders but I'm sure most people buy them to see them taking a snail. Why anyone would want to watch anything eat a snail is beyond me. I recently saw a video of a snake eating a snail and it was gross af :eek:

You're right about the Cheatopelma olivaceum being European, they're found in Turkey and Cyprus as well as Middle Eastern countries. They're fast and will take any opportunity to escape.

Mine was happily chomping tonight so I managed a photo

You can always get a communal of Monocentropus balfouri slings .
That is something I would like in the future but I cant do it yet. I'm looking to move house and will have to have a new bug room built. I would like to do a communal coffee table setup. That would look cool
