    Good day everyone! I'm new to the hobby of tarantula keeping, although I did have a Mexican Red Leg about 30 years ago. He was a male and lived about 6 months. This was an adult and went through his last molt shortly after I got him. I now have a rose hair which appears quite young. Looking forward to working with him and gaining more experience.
    It appears this is a knowledgeable group and glad to be aboard. Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

    Hi OLDMAN, it doesn't feel right calling you that as your only about a year older than me :D. Welcome back to the hobby, you've found the right place for good, friendly help.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm in the physical state of Illinois, and the mental state of confusion:)

    G'day and welcome!
    You'll find this forum to be very friendly and helpful! I joined when I was just starting to think about getting tarantulas and I learnt a lot before even ordering a spider. It's an invaluable resource in my opinion.
    Enjoy!
