Half the fun of keeping tarantulas is sharing with other tarantula keepers. I've got some space in a friend's booth at the reptile show this weekend to sell my tortoises and roaches, and I went a little wild with some of the tarantula vendors. The roaches sell like hot cakes, and there is just no way for me to stand next to half a dozen tarantula vendors with a fat wad of cash from selling off surplus roaches that I would have given away for free, and not buy some. Just a few. Then a few more. Then I discovered Joe Rossi's table and just gave up on the whole self control thing… I got: 1 1.5" freshly molted T. stirmi 1 tiny little B. albiceps 1 tiny little B. auratum 2 1" Davus pentoralis (Which were the hottest ones to transfer out of their little cups… WOW! are they fast!) 1 1" M. balfouri 1 3" P. rufilata 1 1.5" P. rufilata 1 2" P. ornata 2 1/2" G. pulchripes 2 1" B. vagans All three pokies were quite cooperative with the move and gave me no trouble at all. Those damn D. pentoralis came out hot and ready for action. Got my adrenaline going, they did. And one of the B. vagans was the only one that turned around and bit the end of my paintbrush handle! Tomorrow I'll go back for M. robustum and E. cyanognathus, and my wish list will be complete! I can't help but ponder the fact that all of these spiders were purchased with money that I got from selling the insects that I feed them. I can't explain why this is so amusing to me, but it really is.
