I am wondering how many of you started to move up from beginner species. I have owned four rose hairs and want to move up to some more interesting tarantulas but I am nervous about not being qualified to take care of them. When I got my first rose hair my asshole friend tried to get me to get a greenbottle blue, but after six seconds of google I realized, though I would give half an organ to have one, they are not for people who are inexperienced. I was looking for some advice from people who advanced from relatively common, normal pets to the harder to own, how did you do it?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2007747 If you can successfully keep simple species happy, you are well qualified to try something trickier. You already know what is involved with keeping appropriate temps and humidity. If the care sheets for more difficult species look doable for you then go for it. Often the difference between beginner and advanced is just smaller margin for error.
For most trantulas going from a beginner's species to an expert is easy. Like the other anon said you already got the basics down temp, humidity, and substrate. That being said you should still account for agrsssion and consider that other T.s might not be as slow or docile as a rose hair. Best advice I can give you is decide on the species you want and then read up as much as you can on it. Find out what other people do and don't do and learn from them. Don't just impulse buy (though I've been guilty of that in the past). Also consider getting spiderlings.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2007747 I've had my B. vagans since May. First tarantula ever, got him at 2". He's now 4", a definite male (sexed him with /an/'s help), and doing just fine. Everywhere I have read says they aren't a good beginner species but honestly I haven't had a single problem. Except whenever I test his feeding response he gets pissed off.
Does anyone else only kill mosquitos when provoked? They're just trying to live life, man. It doesn't feel right to just smash em to smash em. I wait until they land on my arm or something then bite before smashing their bodies onto my skin.
>>2007347 I thought I was the only one. My Dad got chased by one across the sea ice when he was with the navy. I think a woman got dragged underwater to her death by one as well. I wonder if it saw her as food or just a threat? The Southern Elephant seal is quite a beast too >dives to the same depths as Sperm Whales
>>2007342 What's you guys' opinion on meme-dogs anyway? When I hear hipsters say: "Ew, everyone has a labrador" like it fucking matters, my pimp hand starts itching. I don't consider my dog a fashion statement.
but from the stand point of someone who works at a shelter, it's because they're dogs people just mindlessly flock to like sheep and are annoying as fuck about. especially labs, actually. even more annoying if it's a typically very annoying breed that people shit their pants over (again, labs)
So, 4 years ago I moved to an appartment in another city with a friend, and I left my cat in my house because my friend doesn't like cats. I visit her (my cat) every once in a while.
Now I'm moving to a loft alone and I can take her there. The thing is, I don't know what to do. I mean, I really want to take her there but she have been living in that house for four years now and she's used to get outside and I think she might suffer in a loft without a big garden.
Do you think it's a good idea to take her with me? Or should I just leave... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2007341 >Pls stahp. Take it with you. Indoor cat is only cat. It's what I plan to do but I have seconds thoughts because of that, if that's not a problem I'll take her.
Any good advice on what I can put there so she won't suffer a lot the change? The place is almost 100 m2 big and has a really small patio I was thinking I could put some plants so she can see some green.
Bonus points if it's your pet. Extra bonus points if you greentext some shit that the pet did.

I adopted a feral kitten that got fucked up along the way or was born that way (I think born that way because his eyes are fucked too)
He twitches in his back legs a lot seemingly at random. The examination as the humane society said probable nerve damage. It's livable and not really problem but I'm worried that it could get worse later in life. He's about 3 months old right now.
I impulsively bought a female veiled chameleon yesterday. I've never owned a reptile before and I understand chameleon's are high maintenance animals and I have a lot to learn. I bought her a Zoo Med Repti Breeze Chameleon Kit from PetCo (same store where I bought her) as well as a kind of bendy branch thing (also fake) a moving water source, a mister and a humidity gauge. I've been feeding her crickets and mealworms, but she doesn't seem to be touching the mealworms. The temperature fluctuates between 65 degrees and 90 degrees, but I try to keep it above...
