    Very interesting skar. My family is not good with bugs at all, so can't keep any :(

    The praying mantis is awesome. I've held a tarantula, but they aren't my favorite pets

    Oh my gosh the tarantula is totally AWESOME!!!! :eek: I love tarantulas! :D

    Thank you.
    It's really cool that you all enjoyed seeing them :)

    Nice T! What species is it? I also love your mantis is it a Dead leaf or Flower mantis?
  8. JoyToTheFishesValued MemberMember

    Lol, well.. I won't be able to sleep tonight.

  9. skarWell Known MemberMember

    Lol at joy to thefishes.

    The tarantula is a Acanthoscurria geniculata and the mantid is a thistle mantid ( Blepharopsis mendica).

    I would love an Acanthoscurria geniculata, but their larger size is a problem... Definitely one of my favorite Ts. The thistle mantis is very pretty, I've never seen one, but the pictures of them are neat!

    Oh, I like her coloring! Very nice! Yeah, I do enjoy looking at pictures of these wonderful spiders, wish I could keep one myself but ya know, they are a little misunderstood and it wouldn't work out too well while still living with the parents lol.
  16. skarWell Known MemberMember

    No rush... They will always be around.
    If you ever do get a T I suggest keeping only a few. Allot of people seem to go over board with Ts.

    I got my first T when I was living at my parents.. I hid it in the closet until I moved out :)
    I'm not suggesting that, however it was kind of cool to have a little secret in plain sight.
  17. BornThisWayBettasFishlore VIPMember

    Yeah, I'd probably only want one to start with, if I ever did decide to get one. I love the colors of the Cobalt Blue and the Green Bottle Blue, but from what I hear the Chilean Rose Hair is one of the best beginner spiders, correct?

    Lol, my parents would be so mad if I did that...... like, literally. How did you manage to keep the crickets hidden too?

    I had a curly hair male, he was the meanest T I've ever seen (he normally flicked hairs at me, but he has tried to bite me through the cage and while my hand was in there)... I'm not sure about curly hairs after my male, but I know a person who owned a rose hair and they said it was a great T.

    Cobalts and green bottle blues are beautiful! The orange starburst baboon are also very nice too!

    Crickets disappear fast, just buy 1 cricket for 13 cents and they are gone as soon as they hit the floor :).

    All those Ts are pretty but they are very defensive. And not good if your starting out.

    Rose hairs are very common and easy to get. As far as beginning with Ts its really finding what you are interested with.
    I started with a Avicularia versicolor.
    I would suggest a Avicularia Avicularia.
    They are pretty easy to find and are more interesting in my opinion.

    It's great to see your interest !
