When crushing an escaped roach with your bare hand doesnt phase you. :ohmy:

The early bird gets the worm... but the early worm gets eaten by a bird.

You know you're a Tarantula collector when...

When all visits are guided tours

People don't know you by any other name than spiderman

You don't tell your mother spiders arn't carry-on luggage thus getting your first and illegal tarantula.

You start joining tupperware parties with a "how's my spider suppose to live out of that " attitude.

You confince your tuinboy they are worth R200 each but the next day you beg him to release all 137 of them .

You know you are a Tarantula collector when -

Everytime you buy something in a plastic container you first wonder which sling could live in it before you throw it in the recycling bin

People in your complex call you at midnight to catch the rain spiders in their bedrooms

You arrive home and you don't go sit on your couch, or grab a snack, or run to the loo, you go straight to the T room to see if everyone's ok or if there are any new moults.

There's a small torch laying on almost every table in the house, and no matter what's on TV, you get up every now and then, grab a torch and go check on all your T's.

When a cockroach climbs out of your fiance's handbag, instead of freaking out she simply says "Honey, one of your goggo's got out again..."

You find yourself standing or sitting in your T room, staring blankly in the general direction of all your T enclosures.

Your neighbour calls you every time they find a HUGE jumping spider on their kitchen window, and they are certain it's one of yours.

You fully believe that your coffee table should be converted into a beautiful communal Tarantula enclosure.

There are Tarantula exuviums (moults) laying in strange places all over the house.

Your veggie garden has tons of peat in the soil and your veggies look great in between all the "hen and chicks" you are growing for use in your enclosures.

There is always enough space in the car for one of your tarantulas to go with you on holiday, even if it's on your fiance's lap.

The local R5 store is where you shop the most, and ANY plastic tub you find "might be useful" at some point in the future.

Any shopping expedition MUST include a stop at a pet shop, "i dunno, in case I need something"

You always try and fish to find out if a Tarantula keeper is a member on the forum, and what their nickname is, and when they tell you, you always say "Ohhhhh is that you hehehehe"

If a Tarantula appears in a Movie, you cannot help but blurt out what species it was...

Oh man... I could go on for ages...

:)

You have a bedroom specifically for your T's
You call them T's
No poisons of any kind are allowed in the house
you start using cinnamon to get rid of ants

when you meet a new tarantula person you tell them about tarantulas.co.za
