In November of 2015 a friend of mine and I were trying to figure out what to do. I was like do you like reptiles at all. She’s like yeah why. Repticon happened to be going on in Tampa. So we hauled ass over. We wondered the show. She ended up buying a red corn snake. I kepted looking at tarantulas. They were fascinating to me. I ended up purchasing a sub adult Avicularia avicularia. Also known as a Pink Toe. It actually has pink toes. I named her Mountain Dew because she was a fast little bugger. The rest is history.
