This pic was taken seconds before I mailed her off to Joey, She was more or less dropped off on my doorstep by a friend that couldn't keep her anymore. I'm not a snake guy and Mugleston will provide her with a much nicer home.

My name is Jackie, and I'm from South Carolina. I've always liked spiders, but I'd never kept any as pets until several months ago. I am brand new to this board, but I use the same user name on BugGuide and a couple of other spider-related forums.

Right now, space is limited, so I only have a few true spiders, which were taken from the "wild" on my property or in my neighborhood. (I wouldn't mind having a tarantula, but I don't think that my husband would go for that!)

I like all of my spiders, but my favorites are my two southern house spiders (Kukulcania hibernalis), both of which have egg sacs. (They were gravid when I found them.)

"The Grey Lady" (gravid, just after moving into her jar)

Image
"She-Ra" (one day after laying eggs)

Welcome to the ATS Discussion Board. This hobby is both addicting and not very needing in the space issue, so hopefully we can get you some tarantulas. Not that there is anything wrong with true spiders... Nice pics by the way!

Welcome to the best site on the net! :)

There is a thread somewhere here that the ladies put together on how to get the hubby to allow more T's. Maybe try those little tricks out. Apparently they're almost foolproof LOL ;) !

Hello. Pretty new to the keeping of tarantulas, but I have been keeping other invertibrates, reptiles, and amphibians for many many years.

I don't actually have one yet, a great friend of mine is shipping a female Venzuelan Suntiger to me next week. It's only 3" currently. I am very excited to get her!

I keep/breed 11 species of roaches currently, so there will be no shortage of food. XD

Anyway, here I am

I only keep two arachnids currently. A nursery web spider and a tiger centipede (Scolopendra polymorpha)

I recently wrote a basic care guide for lobster roaches which applies to most other common feeder species, as well.

I will be happy to post it if you can tell me the best category to post it in. I will warn you, it's nothing special :lol:

General or Insects and other Arthropods. Information is information. Sometimes telling things differently makes it click for others, so while the information maybe be "nothing special", the way you present it might teach it better than previous attempts. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the ATS from me as well.

P.irminia are definitely one of my favorite species. A little speedy for a beginner, but I am sure you'll do just fine ;)
Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be happy to help!

Oh, and a thank you for your roach write-up here as well :)

I'm Jackie, I live in upstate NY. I've been here for a while but seldom post. I'm on arachnoboards all the time.

This is me:

My favorite arachnid is the solfugae, but I don't keep one in captivity. Favorite Tarantula genus is the Nhandu...but here is a picture of my sweet girl, Peach, a B. Emilia:

I hope to meet some of you at this next year's conference! I'll be there with my Arachnocrusaders shirt on :)

I'm Nicole and I go between my homeland of rural Arizona and my new home for dental school in Ontario.

You can certainly see the contrast, here I am with a tan in AZ (from August), holding a wild tarantula.

But now it's all snowy in Canada.

I just got my first tarantula, a 2" B. smithi :D

Hi, everyone.

I don't have any "visuals", and didn't see another Intro thread. (It'll take me a while to get used to this forum's layout and setup) I am from NE FL, and I enjoy macro-photography, reading (a must for me), graphic art, Arachnology (more True spiders than Tarantulas, but mixing nicely), and just enjoying a retired life. :)

Some of you will know me by my pics - which I will be sharing a LOT of once I learn the forum's layout. :)

Shhhh... keep my Identity secret.... Just call me: "Wicked" :spider:

I hope to meet some of you here in the forum - I hate FB and rarely visit my account.

Tata for now!
