    Just putting it out there, are there many ppl keeping invertebrates anymore?
    Here's a few of mine if anyone is interested in having a look, atm I keep around 160 individuals, all tarantulas, scorpions and various trapdoors species. RSCN7194.JPG above: phlogius hirsutus, juvenile.
    RSCN7191.JPG above- phlogius crassipes Airlie form.

    RSCN7205.JPG Above- Golden trapdoor, euoplos sp. These are one of my favourites, they are big, solid and burst up out of the substrate to smash crickets.

    Currently I only have a Rainforest Scorpion, but I’m thinking of getting a tarantula too at some point, not sure what kind. My dream one is P. metallica, but of course, can’t have them here in Oz.

    Depends on the reason that qualifies a T as a good entry level starting point.
    All are basic to keep and look after, phlogius grow quick which is rewarding but these are fairly defensive, selonotypus are slower growing and most are defensive too, I've seen people handling S.plumipes. I would say Selenotypus chamagne robustus would be suitable, a bit slower growing but I've seen a few which are generally calm and they have good colour contrast. Aggression generally comes down to the individual and I free handle these about as much as I free handled my djarra death adders when I kept them.

    I have a rainforest scorpling at the moment... Im waiting on 2 black rock scorpions and receiving my tarantula on Wednesday. I purchased a selenotypus sp. Its going to be my first. I would love to get a desert scorpion, but i would like to get into reptiles... so I might hold back for a while. I also don't want to over crowd myself with animals and have to sell them later... I also live with my parents and they're arachnophobic.... so you know how well I'm doing at the moment lol. I've been looking at getting a blue tongue and that will take up a lot of space I have.

    Where do you get inverts in Australia? Best sites?

    I’m a fan of phasmids. Have Extatosoma tiaratum and Tropidoderus childrenii
