for some reason am more wary of irminia but is sweet- for now!
User avatar
Bassman - Fri Oct 03, 2014 11:46 am
Nothing wrong with that :) Yeah, y'know I think the Irminia has more of a rep than the Regalis. I've yet to hear of a chilled out Irminia.

Bassman - Fri Oct 03, 2014 4:29 pm
It did :) Indeed they are. That's why rehousing defensive species is always an interesting affair :D

I keep finding my spider upside down but still alive , do you think it's dying ?
Bubbles - Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:01 pm
And it's started trying to bite me when feeding , could this be the end of my little soldier ?
Bubbles - Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:14 pm
Sounds like a bit of a miracle to me , I hope mine does the same thing , I'd love to have 2 arachnids, id have to get a second shoe box to house it in though.
Bubbles - Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:20 pm
It was damn auto correct , I was supposed to write spider box ! Sorry to hear about your wife's reaction , mine cleared off a few years ago now when she returned from work and El gringo (my red knee) had vacated his enclosure and rehoused itself in her her straightener bag
Bubbles - Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:28 pm
I've only got 4 children so I'd say my breeding days are over and done with these days cwcrazy4arachnids

About us

Keeping Tarantulas can at times prove to be quite a solitary endeavour, seeing as most people tend to recoil in horror when they are informed about the hobby you hold so dear.

And so we here at Tarantulas UK aim to provide a friendly and welcoming forum for hobbyists of all experience levels who may wish to discuss or seek specific advice relating to keeping Tarantulas and maybe make a few friends at the same time! Thanks for stopping by at Tarantulas UK and we hope you stick around.
