Hello everybody, What a great Forum and a wonderful Community. I have been lurking for several weeks. As far as exotic pets are concerned I have kept marine and Reef aquaria since the early 80s. I have a daughter turning 7 this month and she is a major animal lover. We of course have the obligatory dogs and cats. When my daughter was 4 she wanted a hamster. I told her she had to go to hamster school before she could get one. It was a joke. But I actually found one. Since then she became obsessed with betta fish. I found a community of local breeders. Then she moved on to reptiles. We have a gorgeous bearded dragon and a rosy boa. I asked her what she wanted for her upcoming birthday and she said a tarantula. Hence why I landed here. I have a G. pulchripes sling incoming from Jamie's tarantulas this week along with her spiderling kit. When my four-year-old son heard that his sister was getting a tarantula he stated he wanted a scorpion for his 4th birthday coming up just three weeks later. So I added an an adult tarantula enclosure to my order from Jamie to house the Scorpion and will be picking up an Asian Forest scorpion from my local pet store. I was looking for a P. imperator, but I guess due to the Embargo they are hard to find. Anyway, these will be my first arachnidae so I am sure I will run into many questions. I have had so much fun looking at all the Beautiful Creatures within this forum and appreciating everybody's enthusiasm and support for each other.
