    I breed roaches for them to eat. It's free, and I even make some money off those sales too. People need food sources for their reptiles and tarantulas..

    I try.. I was doing a lot better year before last. I averaged $170K that year.. but I got into an accident and spent 3 months in the hospital. Thus causing me to lose almost all my stock. About this time next year, I should be back into it pretty heavily.

    I really like that Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens ~ GreenBottle Blue Taran. How much do those go for? I'd like to get one of those one day, lol. Even though I have arachnophobia, LOL.

    Wow for those bucks I could start to really love these things too!

    Can Tarantulas be kept in a humid jungle vivarium that gets rain (misting) several times a day or will that inhibit their new exoskeleton from curing properly?

    Tarantulas are my 2nd true love. Right next to skateboarding.. But in my old age I had to give it up. So, now that I'm retired I have nothing but time to work with the tarantulas.
    And to answer back on last night's chat box discussion.. I don't handle any tarantulas either. With the exception of the Grammostolia & Avicularia familys. They are gentle giants..

    They are definately hotties! I could get you a sling for about $45 +shipping. Adults are hard to come by. Since nobody really wants to sell theirs.

    I love your site Amazing stuff! How do you handle a spider that you can't handle or that flicks the hairs? Is there a tool you use?

    Thank you! I actually don't handle many of my tarantulas. The only ones I do handle are the Avicularias really. And they don't flick urticating hairs per say.. This is the ONLY species that is so gentle and shy, that they press them into your skin. At first you think it's a sign of affection.. seeing your little girl press and rub her butt against you. But a few hours later, you realize she was just being a little !!
    And if your wondering what the reaction to urticating hairs is like.. The best way to explain it is like adding poison ivy and fire. Except it doesn't spread from itching. And it will last a good 2-4 weeks. Here's a pic of what happened to me just from cleaning my Goliath Birdeater's tank. BUT, keep in mind.. I am SUPER sensitive to urticating hairs. And many others are not..
