    Welcome!
    We are all normal here, not like those weirdos that make up the general population!

    Hello and welcome. I think you might be the first Turkish member here. Congratulations!

    Was this your first tarantula, or do you already have others?

    Hello and welcome to the family :)
    Tarantula husbandry is still more of a weird hobby in several places, so no need to worry about that. Even my hubby thought that me owning 12 tarantulas is weird, until I told him that several people own 50 - 300 individuals :D

    My number of tarantulas is now measured in hours, not quantity numbers. As in: How many hours it takes to run through them all for food, water and cleaning.
