Default Revisiting an old eight legged hobby

So, back when I was a kid I had a few pet tarantulas and in general have always been fascinated with spiders, I think I got rid of my last one when I was 17 or 18, right before moving out.

Fast forward a few years and a post on FB got me interested in possibly keeping Mantises, so
I was browsing on a bug vendor site and decided to check out the tarantulas on the market these days HOLY CRAP there are hundreds of different ones available these days, back then there were only like a few dozen available.
I became hooked again, picked up a indian ornamental tarantula at a reptile show and bought a Pink salmon bird eater juvi as well as a choco brown golden knee.

Any others on here ever keep Tarantulas, scorpions or insects?

Even though he is just a baby, this guy makes me nervous, very fast and has the most toxic venom of all the tarantulas, getting bit=trip to the ER
Indian ornamental



This is the juvi bird eater, as an adult it will have a 10-11" leg span.


Choco gold knee



This is a pricey one that I plan to buy and possibly breed next (cash cows) 1 egg sac =75-100 babies. 2 month old babies go for $35-45 ea. with a very high demand, figure 3 sacs a year and you have a spider that is making you near $10,000

Gooty sapphire indian ornamental





Just bored at work, thought I would share the weird shit Im into. lol

I held my rose hair all the time when I was a kid, but I got tagged by one when I was working at Waldo Pets back in highschool, after that I'm a bit hesitant, also all the spiders I currently keep are rather aggressive and fast.
So nope, no touchy for me.

This a video of a guy handling an adult of the baby I have and you couldn't pay me $1000 to do what he is doing. These spiders are "teleporters" if they want to they can be wicked fast, they can also jump as seen in the video.

This is a video of a guy right after getting bit by a spider in the same genus.

Showing how fast a tarantula with an 8in legspan can run.

I worked at Waldo Pets through highschool, I used to have a bunch of critters, I was breeding leopard geckos, crested geckos and veiled chameleons. Also had 2 8ft redtail boas.
Got rid of everything but my reef aquarium when I graduated and moved out.

Lol. I'm friends with Rob C on Facebook. Didn't realize he was into tarantulas that much. He was big in the N54 community before he sold his 335i.
