Not everyone is a doctor, and not everyone finds it easy to learn these names.

It is however a skill all T keepers should acquire - There is no question about it.

Go have a look at:

best regards another idiot


As much as I understand that it's not easy and other 'pets' use common names, the simple fact's are that tarantula common names are just way too littered with errors to be used succesfully.

Let me put it to you this way, I have transfered $500 into your account for the tarantula's I want, here is my list:

1) Brazilian Red and White

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_red_and_white_tarantula

2) Skeleton tarantula

3) Yellow banded

4) Black Velvet

Thanks, I'll be waiting for them very impatiently, please make sure they get here asap! :woohoo:

As for Stanley's patience shown it was truly exemplary and and example to all of us!!
The point here is that even though the guy was arguing 'incorrectly', there is no need for any sort of derogatory name calling on our forum as it is simply against the rules ;)

You can take an Aphonopelma to crickets but you can't make it eat!

I obviously lost something somewhere... :huh:


Well, maybe not really. Maybe you just saw through the facade! The OP was bringing to the forum's attention an antiquated response I made to a fellow who was either very frustrated with the scientific naming method, or who really didn't have a clue about what the issues were.

In a long, rambling response I managed to not talk about this persons "lack of ept"* or a lack of understanding, and went off on my own tangent discussing several different only very distantly related subjects: the current name of the king baboon, my Shelties, and finally I blather on, using movie cliche's.

But, thank you ever so much for at least paying attention. :laugh:

Cheers, and enjoy your little, 8-legged, Latin buddies.
