My girlfriend and I were out on some dirt roads to over near our property in Arizona today. She spotted the lil guy in the road as we were hualing azz out through there. We turned around and went back. He/she was cold and not moving very fast, so I got him and put him over in the brush in the direction he was already traveling. That's the second one we've carried out of the road. Neither was a bit agressive with me. I think they are kind of cool, and they native to here to. 🙂

I used to be like that also, but since I started keeping beardies and frequenting reptile stores I've gained an appreciation for most any kind of animal. I used to hunt and fish and such, now I do all my shooting with a camera. I've pretty much lost all my unrational fear of things like spiders and try to just observe them instead of ..... well giving them the ole boot 👢 lol.
Heck last year I got out and took pics of a western diamond back from about 3 foot. My girlfriend wasn't impressed to say the least rofl 🤣

Tarantula's are fun.
What type of Tarantula is it?

Cute little creatures Lol.
I'm honestly not sure. I need to research and see what species are native to here. The other one we relocated had a lot of red. This one was more plain looking.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
