January 2014 Arachnotour Vid - Part 2- New World Species
Here's Part 2 of the Arachnotour video. I just recently got myself a new E.pachypus (stout legged baboon) so thought I should include her in this part. This part exclusively deals with New World Species...that is Ts ONLY from North, Central and South America. Most of them have urticating hair (except for Tapinauchenius, Iridopelma, Psalmopoeus) so they do not have extremely potent venom.

Pulling Out the P.regalis eggsac
What a cool experience. This sure got me shaking. Probably around 50-70 eggs in there. T A lot of People ask why I removed the sac. I did it for 3 reasons 1) Spiders are cannibals...so it's very possible that the mother can eat the babies or vice versa 2) To monitor closely the eggs and feed the female since she hasn't been fed in over 2 months because she had the sac 3) The tarantula is known for being extremely defensive, moves like greased lightning and has a strong bite. I didn't want to deal having this many babies with an angry mother in the same tank

How Dare You Alex080/Turtle24569 - AVOID!!
Sorry for the blurry camera work, I think my lens needs cleaning. Please read below My Review: F- (does that even exist, LOL) Everyone's dying to see this one. That lying S.O.B stole $400 of my hard earned money, a university student, towards the purchase of 14 tarantulas. I am a lawn cutter (as you know from many of my lawnmower videos) and making $400 is hard work.. Since this purchase I have yet to see my money or my tarantulas. He sent me a total refund of $7.62, which was left in his bank account. What an damn insult!! Hard to reach by phone, email, and gives lame excuses about when he's shipping or more often why he isn't. At this point, I will most likely never see the money nor my Ts. All I know is he sent off my GBB to Louis, so I don't know what happened to my dozen. Alex is a conniving thief that will keep your money and may send you what looks like to be stolen Ts. Avoid him like the plague. This was my first time ever dealing outside of Canada. Tarantulaguy1976 has removed his website, and I don't know if he still has another one that's up and running (I hope not), but im sure its not under his alex080 name anymore. Be warned...Always get a RECIEPT before buying anything whether it be Ts, gas or anything to show proof you paid for it. What I forgot to mention in the video, is that I spent $10 to send a registered letter addressed to his mother. Of course they ignored it, so I filed a report on IC3 website (INTERNET CRIME COMPLAINT CENTER) to bring him down. STAY AWAY FROM HIM!!! He blames everyone but himself....what an EPIC FAIL!! I'm not the only one who got ripped off. Haplofool, Robc, Kaydyn1512, Irishknight, tony77tony, DansDragons, Mina and a whole lot others. See his reviews here... http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=144754 Also if anyone has videos of Alex080 sending you Ts...delete them! He should not be supported. Thanks for watching

Tarantula Canada Visit and 36 New Ts
This is an example of a reputable tarantula dealer - Tarantula Canada Martin and Amanda are lovely people and were nice enough to give me permission to film their store. Picking up 30 Tapinauchenius gigas - I will be selling 15 of them in 2-3 weeks time. I'm not selling them right now because its too cold for shipping, and I want get them well started since they haven't eaten yet...will soon. 31 - Pamphobetus antinous - steely blue leg 32 - Cyclosternum schmardae - Costa Rican green rump 33 - Poecilotheria fasciata - Sri Lankan Ornamental 34 + 35 - Avicularia sp. metallica - French Guyana... - these specimens were collected in French Guyana so it is uncertain if they are the true A.metallica... They are on sale for $25 each at Tarantula Canada, reduced from $40 since the sac was larger than they anticpated 36 - Avicularia Avicularia - Pinktoe

Tarantula Mythbuster Video 37 - Detailed Vid on the Monocentropus Species
In an depth look at the ultra rare and pricey Monocentropus species. The creme de la creme. I go through the care sheets and specifics for the M.lambertoni (Madagascar lamberton's T) and M.balfouri (Socotra Island Baboon) in order to successfully raise these species. These tarantulas are aimed for the experienced owners due to their defensiveness and their potent venom Changes to the video - I know the prices in Europe are cheaper. The prices here are in North America - M.balfouri DOES NOT do well in humid environments. Just keep the water dish full Dealers: Canada http://www.tarantulacanada.ca http://www.averyexotics.com http://www.theforrestemporium.com US: http://www.jamiestarantulas.com http://www.tarantulaspiders.com http://www.swiftinverts.com http://www.kenthebugguy.com UK: http://www.thespidershop.co.uk http://www.virginiacheeseman.co.uk/ WORLDWIDE http://www.arachnoboards.com

My List of Great Tarantulas for  Beginners
** Also more info here** Ah, a question that I get asked a lot. Here's another freshener of new beginner Ts. Here's a list of possible tarantulas I feel that would be suitable for new beginners and a list of Ts NOT to own as your first one. All of these species are very easy to keep and raise and are relatively good eaters. Most of these can be handled safely, but individuals will vary. Always be sure to test your T's temperament with the paintbrush before you handle. My list for docile, handleable species - Aphonopelmas species like A.chalcodes (desert blonde), anax (texas tan), hentzi (oklahoma brown), carlsbad green - Brachypelma like smithi (mexican red knee) , albopilosum (curly hair), emilia (mexican painted red leg) - Euathalus sp red, orange or yellow - Eupalaestrus campestratus (pink zebra beauty) or E.weijenberghi (white collared) - Grammostola pulchripes (chaco golden knee) - usually docile but can be moody - Grammostola pulchra (Brazilian Black) - usually docile but can be moody - Grammostola rosea (rose hair) - few are docile but can be unpredictable...Also famed for going on feeding fasts - Avicularia species like A.avicularia (pinktoe), A.metallica (whitetoe), A.huriana (ecuadorian wooly pinktoe), A.miniatrix List of Ts that are good first beginners but not necessarily handeable - Avicularia versicolor - Antilles Pinktoe - Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens - Green Bottle Blue - Lasiodora parahybana - Salmon Pink Ts to Avoid for the first time (these are very fast moving, defensive and potent venom) - Any of the pokies (like P.regalis, P.ornata, P.metallica) - P.murinus rcf (OBT) - P.muticus (king baboon) - H.maculata (togo starburst) - H.lividum (cobalt blue) Where to Buy Tarantulas online Dealers: Universal: http://www.arachnoboards.com Canada: Amanda and Martin: http://www.tarantulacanada.ca Bruce Carr: http://www.arachnophiliac.com Dawn: http://www.tangledinwebs.com UK http://www.thespidershop.co.uk http://www.thevirginiacheeseman.co.uk Europe: Michael Scheller: http://www.vogelspinnen-scheller.de/1...

January 2014 Arachnotour Vid - Part 1 - Old World Species
Sorry for the long wait. I've decided to split my tour video in two parts. One's showing the old worlds and new worlds. Old world Ts are species that are found in Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia. All of these species do NOT have urticating hair. Therefore, they'll be more defensive/skittish in their temperament and will have more potent venom. These are by no means beginner species.

Brand New 2011 STIHL FS - 90R (4-MIX) Review
I finally got this beauty for $350 Canadian + tax (I know that they're a lot cheaper in US). I love the way this machine sounds. Definitely more quieter than my FS-70RC The STIHL FS90-R is powered by STIHL's 28.4cc 4-mix engine. The same engine also powers the FS-100RX (31cc), FS-110 (31cc) and FS-130 (36cc) trimmers and the BR500, BR550 and BR600 Magnum Backpack leaf blowers (65cc)). The engine is designed to be a single cylinder 4-stroke (valves unlike 2's) with mixture lubrication (2-stroke gas), which is why it sounds so much different. This engine is also designed for torque but at the same time to burn clean, efficiently and reduce emissions. Best of both worlds.
