    im a fan of obts. of course, a good first tarantula is always one thats slow and handleable ( g. rosea) but an obt is rather undemanding so...


    mass you had /have how many tarantulas?

    I used to have no less than 2000 tarantulas at any given time. All different species.. You name it, I bred it. But those days are long behind me.
    OBT was actually my 3rd tarantula ever. Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi) was my first.

    Here's half of the old tarantula room. The other half was wall to wall shelves full of spiderling vials.

    I'll be picking her up in a few weeks! If you guys don't hear from me for a few days, you know what happened.

    Good luck!! Wow mass, those pics are very convincing! Do the terrariums have to be 20-40 gallons or can they be simple 1' X 1' X 1' plexi boxes? I have a few of those with mesh tops that I'd love to put to use. What do you feed them? Does the food cost a lot or is it obtainable by the truckload so to speak?


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I'll need it... I've already decided to name it Cupcake!
    They only need a 5 gallon terrarium from what I've read. Crickets and dubia roaches are pretty easy to find and cheap.

    Okay, not getting the OBT anymore. It was a male and matured really fast, so I'm getting a Lasiodora parahybana instead! I'm actually more excited for this one.
