Hi there, I'm looking around for a first tarantula. I've been fascinated with spiders all my life and kept various common true spiders as "pets" for years. Mostly my home is a no kill relocate little critter zone.
I'm older, almost 65 and have some chronic medical conditions which limit my mobility so I've been looking for a tarantula that would be easy for me to care for.
Probably terrestrial for sure. I would like to be able to look over and see a T sitting in it's habitat. I'm not interested in handling a tarantula as I'm probably not quick enough to recapture one if it decided to bolt.
And I'm also not interested in having a large collection either.. At most I could eventually manage 3 Ts. due to space and medical issues.
I've been wanting a tarantula for a few years, but my husband hasn't been "on board" with it until lately when he softened his objections and relented. :)
Anyway this is just an introduction and as this is a local to me board I thought I would say hi!
