I just want to share one of my hobbies to all of you.
After leaving Fairview long ago, in which I also have to leave my pet German Shepherd, Egor, since they don’t allow pets in our old condo, (I have to thank my good friend Jeff for adopting Egor) I longed to have a new pet.
A few years later, we were already in the Project 4 townhouse when I decided to get into exotic pets.
I first thought of reptiles, or hedgehogs or those cute sugar gliders. But after some heavy research, visiting some breeders and getting to know those in the hobby, the best that would fit my lifestyle would be- arachnids. Particularly, tarantulas and scorpions.
Scary? They may look intimidating (and astig! hehe) but most of the time if you handle them properly, they are harmless.
They require little feeding (2x-3x a month), don’t need bathes, doesn’t smell, and the good part? Their digestive system is so efficient, there are virtually no droppings. The enclosures just need to be cleaned- 1x a year. How cool and convenient is that huh?
The downside? You have to have steady supply of feeds- roaches (not the house cockroach, but lateralis, a special breed), or beetles, or superworms on hand. You are lucky if you have a breeder nearby who can supply you, but in my case, I have to start a colony of lateralis to appease the appetite my hungry monsters. And my sisters are really not happy with this big Rubbermaid container outside the house, containing roaches.
