    Hello, my name is Felix. I am a student and am currently keeping 5 Theraphosids:
    1.1.0 M. balfouri
    0.1.0 P. Ecuador II
    1.0.0 P. petersi
    0.0.1 C. cyaneopubescens
    I am currently waiting for a 6th T to arrive and that is a 0.1.0 C. sp. hati hati.
    This forum was recommended to me by a person I met at a reptile store in Colorado. I work in a research lab as an intern and really like being in this hobby and learning about invertebrates (specifically Theraphosidae and Solifugae). Thanks for letting me join and I am looking forward to meeting you all! :T:
