    Lol. I know right? If you think that is bad, take a look at this:
    This is on the other side of my room using the exact same shelving system. Had to wrap it around my printer, humidifier and space heater. My wife said she would support my addiction as long as it was contained to the one room. So I had to get creative :D

    He did! He's great....sometimes waits a day or so before he eats. Has been stuck at the penulitimate molt for probably 4 or 5 months. He'll be two years old in May.

    That is awesome! Nice job. I just ordered a Hogna sp. Miami and should be receiving this weekend. They will be joining my Hogna sp. Arizona and my Hogna Helluo. Most likely that will be it for the Summer. Out of space again :(

    Well, I have to drive an hr and a half southwest to near the Mexican border, but yep :D. Gonna make a vacation out of it, hopefully I'll come back after a few days with several pairs. I just want one female, maybe two, and a young male. The ones I dont keep will go to Austin and maybe a few other breeders, depending on how many I catch :)

    My wolfie passed today at almost exactly two years old. I'm not sure what happened. He had been lethargic the past week. Found him upside down in the waterdish......sad face

    Sorry to hear that. Two years is a good long life for one though, no?

    Bummer! But I know the feeling. PM me if you are looking to buy a replacement and I can share some sources with you.
