5.0 out of 5 stars Collins do it again!, 4 Nov 2006
I have many Collins guides and this one doesnt disappoint. Excellent,clear photographs as well as illustraitions of the palps and epigynes for sure~fire identification-these helped me correctly ID the species of spider I found in my shed!

Would be nice to have pics of male and females of all species but then it would have to be bigger and would hardly count as a pocket guide!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!, 3 Nov 2006
I thought this would be just a guide to keeping my Tarantula but its a lot more than that! Theres stuff on history and mythology (how the earliest name for the group we call Tarantulas actually referred to a furry mouse like animal!) and anatomy and physiology. That may sound off-putting but its written in a style thats easy to read for us non-academics.

I would say it is the only book you need if youre thinking of getting a Tarantula!

'nuff said!
