Get some merch :
One thing to be concerned about when keeping tarantulas are ants! and that’s exactly what happened to my Avicularia sp. “Ecuador” (Ecuadorian Pink Toe). However, this time it’s way worse - THEY MADE A NEST IN THE ENCLOSURE! Thankfully, though.. I noticed it in time and they didn’t attack the tarantula. It was even to a point that they started laying eggs in the substrate! Looks pretty cool, but I have to get rid of them for the safety of the spider.

  • OMGosh your Tarantulas are so BEAUTIFUL!!! I have never been a fan of spiders, but I was raised to respect nature and the beauty contained in something most would find creepy and such. I even have a beautiful Orb spider on my front porch that has a HUGE web away from porch traffic, and everyone knows that's BIG Toni and she guards my porch and is OFF LIMITS! I We also have BIG Betty over on the side of the garage and she is also off limits. *LOL* Anyway, you get the point. But you have changed me even more than I thought humanly possible! You have actually made me want one of my very own because you have taught ME a 53 year old woman SO much that I am going to buy a SLING!!! I have been researching a bit and of COURSE watching HOURS of your videos, and was REALLY leaning towards the Brazilian Black, but I am now also considering a Mexican Fireleg or OMG maybe BOTH?!?? Anyway, I just LOVE your videos!!! Keep up the great work and just know your ARE educating us!!! My hubby got snagged as he was walking by and began watching over my shoulder and next thing you know he WAS HOOKED TOO! Now....don't get me wrong, he HATES spiders but he respects and never kills anything unless "attacked first" as he calls it. *LOL* I told him I am thinking I need one of these Tarantulas in my life, and he said which one are you thinking? A beginner one? Do they even have beginner ones?!? And then I was EDUCATING HIM about what YOU had taught ME and THIS MY DEAR FRIEND IS HOW ONE PERSON MAKES AN IMPACT!!! This is how ONE voice can change an ENTIRE PLANET and THAT is AMAZING! MUCH adoration and respect to you and your craft. Melody
