Fine! :silly: here are a few journals ... in German ;) lol. Yes I know and German journals and papers... I am just extending my research. <E-zine journals from America. For more extra reading. Don't think they produce any more journals from my understanding.

@ The Magnificent duke - just a pity most people don't have access to "the British tarantula society" journals ;) ... except for members. "Wish extends my membership with all this free marketing ;)"
