I’ve been captivated by keeping tarantulas and other creepy-crawlies since I was a young child, and have kept them in some capacity ever since I got my first tarantula in 1995. I adore everything you would label “creepy-crawly”…true spiders, praying mantises, scorpions, centipedes, roaches – the list just keeps going! All inverts are fascinating to me.
Luckily for me, I happen to live in a state that’s home to multiple species of tarantulas (you can read about them here or watch a video here), and tons of other awesome inverts, such as Scolopendra heros and Hadrurus arizonensis. It’s easy to find something fascinating just by walking outside of your house if you know where to look.
I currently keep a mix of New World and Old World tarantula species and various other inverts. I started this website because I love talking about the creatures I keep, and that isn’t easy to do around people that don’t like “bugs”.
I’m not an entomologist, and I’m definitely not an expert on anything – I’m still learning about this hobby, and my knowledge is constantly evolving. If I get something wrong, feel free to let me know so I can correct it!
