Hello, my name is Angel. I’m a native New Yorker my whole life, but now retired for two years, I relocated to Orlando Florida to enjoy my retirement. I have been keeping tarantulas as pets for decades since I was a teenager. I have always been fascinated by these eight legged critters. I have a substantial very large collection of every different species. 90% of my collection are adult females that I raised as spiderlings. I’m looking forward to now joining your tarantula forum for some entertaining communications and information. Thanks!
