    Hi everyone,
    I am still pretty new to the hobby but did a great deal of research before purchasing my first tarantulas. I am now up to seven, four slings, one adult, and one juvenile, and am planning on attending Repticon this weekend so I am certain I will not come home empty handed.

    It seems that my area doesn't seem to have a great deal of sources for tarantulas, even the big box pet stores don't carry them, so I am looking forward to connecting with other hobbyists in the area to trade and sell with.

    Welcome!
    I can't help thinking of an 80s Rodney Rude skit - "Pardon me Roy, is that the cat that chewed ya new shoes?" :)
