Which tarantulas should be in every "complete" collection? With this fun list, I share the species that I think everyone should keep at some point. As with all lists, this represents my opinion ONLY. Did I miss one? Let folks know in the comments section on Facebook!
A couple of years ago, I sat down to make a list of what I thought were the top beginner species. Part fun, put informational, the article was meant to help those getting into tarantulas choose an appropriate pet to enter the hobby with. A few years later, I created a video version in which I revise
First, I talk a bit about my recent Rainbow of Tarantulas Video. Then, I discus my list of my top 10 personal favorite tarantulas.
Okay, to kick this one off, I'll be talking about my participation in the "Hot Sauce Tarantula Feeding Challenge."Then, I make my attempt at coming up with a list of the best "Showcase" (or most visible) spiders in my collection.
I've received a lot of requests for a top ten list of most visible tarantula species, but I've been reluctant to put one together. I just don't think that anyone can realistically cover the topic in this manner. Instead, I'm going to talk about some of the tarantulas I have kept that have made good

After being asked this question many times, I actually sat down to figure out which tarantulas I would keep if I could only keep 10. I pretty much failed miserably (I didn't quite get it down to 10), but I gave it a good try! And, for those who want to test out the Quizlet set, click here!
Okay, to kick this one off, I talk a bit about the move and an exciting Kickstarter campaign. At the 14 minute mark, I talk about some of the more uncommon tarantulas in my collection.Support Andrew Smith's Kickstarter here!
