Tarantul.as was founded in January 2017. I created the service as a FREE and SIMPLE solution for tarantula owners/hobbyists to upload and share images of their pets. There are many image hosting service on the web but I wanted to make one without limits and ALWAYS free to use. My goal is to host a large community of enthusiasts and be the "go to" place to upload your images and where you can follow other members, share & like photos and have a cool URL for your profile/galleries ;)
Why use this service?

- It's EASY
- Unlimited photo storage for your tarantula photos
- Custom tarantul.as/profile
- Follow, comment, like & share photos from other tarantul.as members
- Get custom BBcode/HTML img & embed links so you can share your photos on forums or other websites
Who am I?
My name is Jason Calhoun. I am an experienced web and software developer - and new to the tarantula hobby. I have done extensive research online about tarantulas and have found many helpful websites and youtube members who produce great content which aided in my selections of species/housing/feeding etc. I wanted to create something that would fulfill a personal need and develop it into something that would be useful to others as well. I hate using the big name photo hosting services, so I thought why not just make one myself?! The best way I knew how to give back to the community was to utilize my experience in web development to create this project and make it FREE to use.
