    Re: Introductions!

    to Bell and Kevin,
    there are no hot laws in Colorado that I was able to find aside from a license for keeping hot reptiles in Denver and it's only a $25-50 license - they don't care what you have, just that you give them a few bucks for a license. I will look into this further but I've always given attention to what the law is in an area to make a decision about that area...pet stores/dealers can't sell scorpions in Lakewood city limits


    let's see here...I'm currently 25, I started getting into this when I was a little child even though my mom did not approve - because of her stance on some of the animals being symbols of evil I stuck with keeping turtles between the time I was 9 and 16. went on my own at 16 and have had a slew of animals since. currently I'm dealing with breeding and researching scorpions as well as custom acrylic enclosures that I plan to introduce to the public by the 3rd quarter MHRE. I could write a litany but I'll leave you all with what's there.
    What can be done is not what should be done but you have the right to your opinion...note that you do not have the right to not be offended and are therefore subject to another's opinion that you can be put in a 5'x9' cell and do just fine.

    Re: Welcome to the site!

    Hahaha, yeah, grandpa totally gave you the wrong site URL to my personal site. He gave me your email address today so I'll shoot you an email. Glad you found this site, though!

    Maybe I can visit you in FL and catch some awesome reptiles or a B vagans (a Mexican tarantula migrating into FL somehow, haha...) J/K... I'm not one for field collecting. I don't have anywhere to put them.

    Howdy, I am John E Dove, yep my real name.
    I think I am a little older than some of you, maybe all of you from what I have been reading in the threads here.
    Over the years I have kept most common critters and still keep a number of reptilian and arachnid species.

    By State Law in Colorado you can keep Crotalus viridis (Prairie rattlesnakes) without a hot license but you must have a small game hunting license. That said, most major cities have further restrictions that us folks in the country are not covered by.
    No I do not keep any hots at this time.

    Good afternoon all. My name is Ed and I live up here in Scottsbluff NE. I was always the kid who would pick up random bugs and spiders just to get a good look at em. My wife and I have a modest collect now, but we (*cough cough I cough cough*) plan on getting more.

    Re: Introductions!

    Indeed. There are plunny of rattlers and bull snakes around. Lots of pedes too but just the smaller brownish-orange (not a pede specialist sorry :-) ) even some millipedes if you look hard enough. Lots of other great bugs as well. Mantids, wood and wolf spiders as big as a half dollar, walking sticks, it's a great place if creepy crawlies are your thing -- making it the only reason i live here

    Hello,

    We are arachnos, I say we because this is a 7th and 8th grade class in Denver and just met Bell at the RMRE and purchased our first B. Smithi. We bought 3 "slings" in fact. It's nice to meet everyone here. We will definitely be posting alot of questions about our new "friends" and oh yeah, we also have a G. Rosea. She is a great tarantula to have.

    Howdy, Mike! Glad you joined. Let us know if you have questions... we were all newbies once, too.

    What spiders do you have already?

    Re: Introductions!

    Hello. I hadn't received an activation email yet - but I thought I'd try again to log on... and it let me so...

    I'm in Westminster.

    I picked up a flyer at one of the reptile shows (I THINK your the same people) I also bought 3 B. smithi's from your booth there...

    Anyway I finally joined because I really need to meet some local people who can breed T's - I'll ex plane in a separate thread. I was tired an irritable when I first tryed to sign up so I don't have my collection listed - I'll fix that soon.

    I currently have 29 T's represented of 17 different speices. - Most are slings becuase I'm more used to dealing with house spiders - and I've always been afraid I'd drop/kill an adult T if it made the wrong move... so needless to say I really don't handle my spiders. I tell people they are like fish (because people are more likley to understand or have tropical fish displays) they are for display only - not to cuddle.

    In fact I think my coolness factor went down for one 10 year old boy I was talking to when I told him that I did not keep T's becaose of venum... but because they are pretty.

    Anyway I'm going to start that other thread now....

    -Sharon

    Hello! Welcome to the club/forums. Glad to have you. You have a great selection of tarantulas in your collection.

    Hopefully we'll see you around at a meeting or field trip or something?
