I knew it would eventually. I've fallen for tarantulas.
It was Mass's pictures of the OBTs that did it. From there, I decided to check out some T pages, then I found Arachnoboards and it was all over. I'm hooked. No tarantulas yet (still researching like a madman) but I plan on getting some A. versicolor slings sometime in the next month.
Are any T owners/enthusiasts going to be at the ICPS show in August? It would be nice to speak to some other keepers! I just joined Arachnoboards as "Hagrid."
