The tarantula keeping community started out with the monumental goal of exploding an immense galaxy of myths that have accumulated over the millennia, such as:
But we are now faced with a new set of untruths created and perpetuated by the tarantula keeping community whose goal it was to dispel myths! How could we have come to such a pass?
The subsequent little essays originated as comments that these authors found themselves repeating over and over again on a number of Internet arachnid forums in response to the continuing propagation of these new untruths. And, it soon became obvious that doing so was a very inefficient way of dealing with these issues. To streamline the process, those comments were collected here and edited to provide a central, easily accessible resource towards which interested readers could be pointed.
These subjects are also discussed at length in the literature, especially The Tarantula Keeper's Guide, Third Edition, and the reader is referred to that work for more information.
