I am intrested in finding a breeder of goliath or gargantuan bird spiders. I would prefer zebra striped or pink foot. I am a knowlegable exotic pet owner who has raised several large reptiles and black emperor scorpions from babies to adult and want to move on to arachnids with the most beautiful exotic. I am smart enough to kow these are not handled pets, but I want to raise a potential mating male or female that can produce excellent young. Looking for info on ordering and price of specimen. Any info is appreciated. My email is breese343@yahoo.com

    Try feeding her something that she has never eaten before like a lizard. I had the same problem for a little bit she was just sick of her mouse only diet.

    Uh, actually, to both of you (hoping its not too late, for then or any new current or future tarantulas) its not healthy to feed them mammals or other small animals like rodents or reptiles. Terrestrial tarantulas mostly eat large insects and very rarely animals, as they dont have all the proper enzymes to break them down and get all the possivle nutrients out of it like theyd be able to by eating a grasshopper and crickets. He is right about changing up the diet though.

Hello, I just bought (Saturday) my first female Theraphosa blondi and I'm really enjoying her. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. She's sweet in nature, I even gently tested her with prongs at the pet store and she showed no agression. Naturally she's skittish so I have to go really, really, really slow in my movements. This morning I gently pet her legs without a fuss. Maybe (and I expect) her to change in time, maybe when she becomes sexually mature her temper will be more agressive. Now she measure about 6 inches in leg span, maybe more. I haven't found a name for her yet but I will find soon.
I just felt like sharing with you my new T. blondi.
Have a nice day!
PF

    Awesome! I'm planning on getting one as a spiderling and I'm hoping I can teach it to be extremely playful. I heard Blondis are mean but on this site I've seen a few examples of them being nice. But I would want to hold her and find ways to play with her so I'm hoping. If you could give me any advice I would really appreciate it! My emaik is green.shoelace2@gmail.com

I have had my T. blondi for a few months now and she is so sweet. I don't hold her unless I have to move her to clean her cage because she is nervous and kicks hairs and I don't want to stress her out. But she never bites or tries to bite. She stays hidden most of the time and if I lift her hide, she runs out just long enough to be seen and then goes back under to hide again. She is a voracious eater--she had her 3rd pinky last week! I have 10 other tarantulas as well. I have 3 rose hairs, the goliath, a greenbottle blue, Indian Ornamental, Gooty Ornamental, Togo starburst, Antilles pink toe, curly hair, and Brazilian salmon bird eater. They are a great hobby and interesting to watch and care for.

I have owned 2 of these. The one I have currently is a 2 inch female (not including the tail). She has pinched me once. It was a hard pinch. I have held her numerous times and she has not yet made an effort to sting me. She is skittish at first but soon settles down.
If you have an chance to get one GET IT. In my own personal opinion if you want something more "unpredictable" than an emperor scorpion this is it. I am not going to lie to you, they can and will sting if mishandled. But from what I heard from a friend of mine, it is more discomfort that actual pain!
