A tarantula is generally the cheapest pet about there hardly asking for people with rare animals or large collections to come forward doesn't set any alarm bells off to me

Admin Says: Do me a favour you sceptics and pipe down. You all sound paranoid which will only do our hobby no good. Give the lady a chance.

If anything is less than honest, prove it to me and I as an Administrator will take appropriate action. Until then, seek Medical help for the voices in your head and the paranoia that you have.

Why are so many folk willing to kill the hobby and just don't seem to care?

Weyyy! Oh yeah, i forgot they're in Harry Potter aww that's a shame, sorry to hear that. I'm on my first one at the moment, just the one. I went for a juvenile just so that I was clear of the more problematic Instars. He's doing well at the moment, really active at night, climbing all over the rock wall I'm yet to see him eat though which is disappointing. The crickets are disappearing but in never around to witness it, sods luck!

It's always a better option, go for juvenielles the first time then babies by either breeding the juvenielles that are now adults or by getting some babies from a breeder or shop
I remember I had a lot of trouble originally with 1st Instar Congo green Mantis, luckily I got the hang of it and then all grew at a good pace

I might have to give that a go, I HAVE to see him eat do you handle yours much?

i dint handle them intensionally for fear of stressing them but occasionally they would venture out onto my hand when feeding them, mine would take crickets from tweezers so i could tell they were both deeding well
