I've been a member for a few months and have posted some pics and had great convos. So I thought I'd take a minute to actually introduce myself. I'm April. I've got 16 tarantulas currently. 12 are subadult to adult and 4 are slings. My hubs took me to a Repticon several years ago and I was fascinated by the spiders. But had a touch of arachnophobia. He's always been into reptiles but they aren't really my thing. Decided a few months ago to get a few T's from a friend that's a breeder. That was it. I wanted more. I did a lot of research about housing and care and came across this forum. So glad I did. Google is great, but there's so much misinfo that I end up confused sometimes. I've even ended up with a couple Ts I'm not 100% sure I want to keep. Had no idea wild caught vs bred would be a big difference. But I'm gonna give it some time before I make a final decision.
