    Nancy is lovely! They all are obviously, but Nancy is my fave photo, followed closely by Fluffy! I am not a spider fancier generally and can be a bit wary, we have a live and let live policy with them that come in to our home, they're all named Jimmy by the way, my attempt to be less scared!

    I used to be scared of spiders. I grew out of most of my issues with house spiders but orb weavers could make me hysterical. Unsurprisingly since I started keeping tarantulas I've lost all my fears and become totally fascinated by anything with 8 legs! I love getting pics of them. Found this beauty out the front of the house last year...

    I'm a massive arachnophobe, but I still had to look. They are fascinating.

    I also love that you have one called Steve :)

    I'm on Tarantula Gossip, it seems to be an interesting group.

    Didnt know spiders could climb on glass lol. I've got a massive fear of spiders but at the same time I do find them really interesting, I like watching videos of them etc but wouldn't want to hold one :D:Hilarious

    Do you still have them? I expect your slings have grown bigger since you posted this thread? Lol

    Yeah, I've got 15 currently. I've lost a couple of those above... Edna didn't survive following a bad moult and Toni turned out to be male. He moulted not long after that picture was taken and matured, so didn't have long left after that. I've added a few more though.
    I love having them, they really are fascinating especially if you actually catch one in the process of moulting. It's just the most bizarre thing to watch, as if they're really slowly giving birth to themselves.
