          hi my name is Stuart, I'm only 14 so some of you guys have collecting for longer than i have been alive. I don't actually have a T. at the moment but as soon as i convince my mum its not going to escape and kill her I'm going to get a Mexican red leg (Brachypelma emilia) which i am going to buy from http://www.virginiacheeseman.co.uk/Spiders.htm and i think is an amazing site as a small B. emilia is selling for 6 (10 p&p).

                        hi from Payton

                        Hi all,

                        Just introducing myself. I'm a professional classical musician. Some of the music I write is related to spiders, in fact. I live in the NYC area and perform with a group called Alarm Will Sound, as well as various other projects.

                        I've got seven tarantulas and an ever-expanding library of books and articles. I'm looking forward to joining BTS soon.

                        Best,

                          Hi Payton and welcome,

                          Have had a browse through your site, i'm a musician myself (piano / keyboards), some interesting arrangements there, pleasing to the ear.

                          looking forward to reading your work on the effects of music on spiders.

                            Hello BTS!

                            Hello! I thought I had written an intro on here, but apparently, not. Her goes:

                            My love for spiders goes WAYYYY back to my childhood. I have been fascinated by them for as long as I can remember. Tarantulas entered my life (or I entered theirs) when I moved in with a guy who had 20+ Tarantulas and 15+ scorpions in 1998. I found them all very interesting and I was thoroughly educated.

                            I moved out of there in 2003 and bought a house in 2005. I made the decision to purchase a Tarantula. I bought a C. cyaneopubescens (GBB) and recieved an N. chromatus sling as a freebie. This was in October 2006. I now have 18 Tarantulas and 2 more that are owed to me. Here is my current list:

                            Aphonopelma
                            spp "New River" (F)
                            Aphonopelma
                            hentzi (F)
                            Aphonopelma
                            hentzi (F)
                            Avicularia
                            minatrix (U)
                            Avicularia
                            versicolor (U)
                            Brachypelma
                            emilia (F)
                            Brachypelma
                            smithi (F)
                            Brachypelma

                            Grammostola
                            pulchra (U)
                            Grammostola
                            rosea (F)
                            Lasiodora

                            chromatus (M)
                            Poecilotheria

                              hi all, my name is matt and i am an amateur when it comes to the wonderful and fascinating world of keeping tarantulas. at the moment i only have a few tarantulas which are:
                              brachypelma smithi
                              grammostola pulchra
                              lasiodora parahyabana.
                              i have been trying to build my knowledge of these fascinating creatures and have impressed myself with how much i have learned.
                              i am a member of the invicta arachnid club which is a large club for people who keep arachnids in kent, if anyone would like any information on this please dont hesitate to ask me. we hold a meeting the first wednesday of every month and have guest speakers to give us talks on a wide range of subjects, this month we have ray hale giving us a talk. we also do educational roadshows, taking with us a wide variety of arachnids and reptiles.
                              i dont know what else to write really, so i am gonna stop jabbering on

                                hi

                                Hi all,
                                i'm tom, i'm new to the board. im from wales
                                i've been into arachnids for a few years now (tarantulas mostly) first one i had was a chillian rose which led me to start collecting them i have not yet attempted to breed any spiders before but i am thinking about it as i have a few adult female spiders ready for breeding now and i think i have gathered enough information to try.
