Amber Griswold slings (spiderlings) are pretty cheap, actually. Like, as low as $5.
Arachnoboards.com is a great resource if you want to get into the hobby. :)
SwiftInverts.com KenTheBugGuy.com CaptiveInverts.com and BugsInCyberspace.com are all great places to buy your first T.
if you're in the UK or Europe: check out JamiesTarantulas.com :)
Amber Griswold man, I love my tarantula, Chewbacca T. Fuzzybear; I got him after my friend's T, Harriet, helped me overcome by phobia.
I still don't appreciate arachnid surprises, but if I see 'em coming, I'm generally fine...
and that rage comic is AMAZING.
Call me weird, but I loooove spiders. They are one of my top favourite animals, next to snakes.
Here, you should enjoy this rage comic.
