    Hi, I'm Sarah, I bought my first tarantula 8 weeks ago, a 3cm Mexican Redleg, called Regan. I became interested in spiders after buying a couple of Phidippus Regius slings last year plus a praying mantis. It's nice to know I can get questions answered by other keepers as I'm sure I will have plenty along the way. Thanks to @Phil for letting me know about this forum.:T:

    great pics. You can also go to the gallery section, followed by 'add media' button and then select the drop downs to load etc. Will hit a wider audience as these are really good pictures that I am sure more people would love to see

    It's like I always say, being an 'arachnoholic' is real. :T::T::T::T::T:

    Welcome to the forum and the hobby.

    Note: we are not responsible (we are, we just claim to not be for fun) for enticing new keepers further into the hobby by way of tarantula pictures.
