New to the B T S. New to the hobby infact.
I started collecting a month or two ago and each week ive been updating up untill now, ive spent a good 400 pounds on tarantula's so for a few weeks im going to lay low!.
These are the species i own and carefor at this current moment in time.. in due time i am looking to start trying to attempt to breed.. sell..buy

Brachypelma albopilosumCurly Wurly My smallest addition about 4mm to 6mm.

Cyriopagopus schioedtei Malaysian Earth Tiger about 2cm!
Heteroscodra maculata Togo Starburst about 5cm ish This one is a personal frav and extremely nippy.. rude! but shy as hell since ive given it a lovely hollow log underground that has another log meeting it to come out but stays in alot.
Acanthoscurria Geniculata Giant White Knee about 3cm Always on display dosent webb much ruff n tumble when it comes to feeding unless its near a molt. then she starts getting mardy and flicks hairs at me.
Poecilotheria Regalis (just molted) about 5-6cm was 3-4cm big molt. ! lovely t unfortunatly with size of its giant front things i think it might be a male but not to sure to small to tell yet?!
Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens Greenbottle blue About 5-7cm fat abdomen and carapae tarantula Agressive!! and webbed right up to the lid so i have to go past her to get into her space..! great eater!
Psalmopoeus irminia Venezuelan suntiger 7-8cm Realy lovely Deal i got with this one picked her up got her at this size for 35 was labled wrong in local pet shop and they wasnt to keen about re-homing it so got away with it ! :D

Poecilotheria Rufilata Red Slate 8-11cm Fast fast and agressive and extremely pretty. my fav i have to say and my first ever T. had her for 2 months she/he molted once and is due to molt in not to long from now to.

TarantulaWrangler (http://www.youtube.com/user/tarantuladdict)* not tarantuladdict since someone has a similar name (TarantulaAddict) i changed it swiftly to save confusion.

Sorry to burst your bubble but shouldnt you actually know about the anatomy of tarantulas before you get on to be the UK's top tarantula breeder ?

ALL tarantulas have 'the giant front things' as you call them. Being a male (or a female) has NOTHING to do with the size of the pedipalbs


If you paid 400 for all those spiders (including containers) you have been seriously ripped off. All of those spiders are worth around maximum 90-100 retail.

Let me get this absolutely strait.
IM not in a test nor do i expect to be disrespected by people whom i share interests with..
I was not aware i had to be scientifically correct when posting on here i am not teaching a lesson or trying to state on here that i have infinite knowledge infarct as i stated i am NEW to the hobby.

Regards to the price ive spent it includes all the glass enclosures, spiders, food, substrates, heatmat, fake decor and cork bark all from a local petstore i was expecting it to be slightly over priced but it wasn't bad. the 5 slings and the TOGO i bought online from The Spider Shop not to long ago.

i could quote Ur text and correct u but meh..

Now where here i might aswell address the matter, its all over other tarantula forums that these forums are full of people..... ... who will bite Ur head of etc, i wasn't totally convinced.. still not a 100% sure you stand for the entire BTS community so i will give others a chance to reply and ignore your comments any further to refrain from stooping back down to this level of contact.

payed
45 for Poecilotheria rufilata,
35 for sun tiger
16 for giant white knee
25 for regalis
50 for obt
45 for GBB
TOGO was a replacement for a 1cm sling which was DOA so ..ty spidershop uk great service!
slings where all under 5 pounds.

So no i was not ripped off.
And Please someone with something constructive/ nice to say ? or shall i take it my presence is unwanted ?

Regard's,
Matt.

HANDS UP, when i posted i clicked onto this side of the forum from another topic which said share what you have, i didnt realise it was a share what you have bred! SO sorry for being in the wrong part of the forum!
