    Hi, my name is Dave, 40yr old from Manchester - UK. Not kept T`s since my teens, but last year i done some volunteer work at an exotic pet shop, as you can imagine, it got me back into keeping them again. My partner who was fully arachnophobic when we met, isnt afraid any longer and enjoys keeping T`s just as much as I do. We currently own 12 Tarantulas, 3 Praying mantis, 1 Boa constrictor and 2 Horsefield Tortoises.

    We have:

    Acanthoscurria Geniculata - Giant White Knee - X2
    Grammostola Rosea - Chillean Rose - X1
    Poecilotheria Metallica - Gooty Sapphire Ornamental - X1
    Brachypelma Albiceps - Mexican Golden Red Rump - X1
    Psalmopoeus Irminia - Venezuelan Sun Tiger - X2
    Nhandu Chromatus - Brazillian Red and White - X1
    Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens - Green Bottle Blue - X1
    Chilobrachys SP - Black Satan - X1
    Poecilotheria Miranda - Bengal Ornamental - X1
    Ephebopus Murinus - Skeleton Tarantula - X1

    Hello and welcome. That was a fantastic first post. You've got a great group of tarantulas there. Some of my favorites.

    I'd love to see your mantids too.
