Thanks to @Phil for recommending this as an alternative forum :) Having had a scan through the site, I’d like to introduce myself and say hey!

Having kept reptiles for many years I finally branched out into the world of tarantulas and more recently, scorpions. Though I kept a secret curly hair as a young teen, my mum point blank refused to any pets other than my small collection of beardies.

Since moving out I bought an Avic Avic, though sold to me as an Avic Metallica lol this 1 T was the beginning of what I never expected to be an amazing, colourful and thrilling journey.

Receiving 5 balfouri’s from @Phil tomorrow as well as a P. Met and P. Victorii. Cannot wait to start observing my first ever communal enclosure!

Do you keep communals?

Thanks all :)

Keeper of around 35 T’s, 8 scorpions, boa’s, BP’s, Panther Chameleon, cat and 2 kids

I want to guess the species and see how many I get.

First one is B. vagans? My second guess was going to be G. iheringi. Can't tell for sure from your pic.
Second one: P. subfusca? or a young tigrinawesseli? Really guessing on this one.
Third is N. chromatus?

Hiya Tom!

First one, correct, B. Vagans. Second is a sub adult P. Miranda and the 3rd, bang on. N. Chromatus (with a locust in it’s mouth :)
