Thought id quickly come and say hello to everyone. I have been reading though the forum for a good few weeks now and now that ive taken the plunge and ordered a couple of T's I thought i better make an account. I've kept lizards and snakes for the last 15 years along with a few other "normal" pets but i'll admit i was always kinda of scared of Tarantulas; even though mine are still yet to arrive (thanks to how cold it still is here in the UK) i have already grown to love them though all the research i've been doing. Once the weather warms up slightly Phil (the well known member on here) will be sending out 2 slings to me. One C. Versicolor and one T. Violaceus. I will post a couple of photos like a proud dad when they arrive and I look forward to becoming a more integrated member in this awesome forum.
