Hi I’m Teri, I’m new on here and new to the hobby. I currently have 4 T’s and have three more coming. There is a neighbor who introduced me to the hobby and goes on expos up and down the coast. I thought I’d try my hand at some macro photography! Hope you enjoy! Glad to be here.View attachment 38557

Hey, Vlad, There's a guy on Youtube with a channel called The Dark Den. He has tons of videos of his tarantulas, which must number in the dozens. He lives in Romania, too! You might want to check him out:


Best of luck to you and your new tarantula!
MY mistake, he's from Croatia.

Hello, I'm new to not just the group here, but to having a tarantula named 'Q'; yes she is a Honduran Curly Hair a.k.a. Curly Q. Yeah well anyway, I've had her for about three months now. For the first month and a half I never saw her come out of her den that she started constructing one the first night; while I slept...lol.
Now she comes out even in the late evening before lights go off, and I'm being able to really enjoy the digging, the pouncing and her just chillin' at the entrance.
I was told that the 29 gallon tank was a 'bit overkill', but she's happy (or content) and must feel comfortable with her seven to eight inch substrate of a layer of forest floor, layer of dirt, and a layer of moss with forest floor and oak leaves on top.
Because of my name I thought it would be cool to have a spider - you know, something spinning a web - but I'm happy with my B. Albopilosum.

Hi @Web, sounds like you have given her plenty of things to move around and make comfortable. Great species for a beginner and just wonderful to observe. I hope you will be very happy together.

Hey all, My name is Rose, living in Netherland.
Very new in the hobby, and after years of being terrified of spiders, I came as far as to want to have a pet T.
Obviously, getting a pet without being informed is just a dumb idea, so before actually getting one, I registered to this forum to do research about keeping a T.
Thanks for reading!

Welcome Andrew. Which are your favourites and what are your 2 true spiders?
My dream T would be T. Seledonia but it’s still a bit to expensive atm. Favourite T I already have has to be the A. Genic there such ferocious eaters. I have a mature female Eratigena Atrica and a Steatoda Grossa unsexed

Yeah, they are amazing to look at. Whenever someone tells me spiders aren't pretty I always Google a photo of a T seladonia to prove them wrong.
Sounds like you've got quite a nice collection. The geniculata is a must have. I will probably get around to getting one sometime (I'm new to keeping). They are fantastic looking too.
