    NIce picture:) Well, the rule of thumb is to not handle them for 48 to 72 hours after feeding, depending on the size of the prey. Basically if you can still see a lump, then wait longer. Biting is from one of two things, either there is food around or the snake is feeling threatened. I would guess the second one. It's in a brand new environment, is young (babies tend to bite more than adults), and doesn't really know you yet. So be patient and gentle and you should be fine.

    These are even better pictures to see your beautiful snow corn snake. And yeah, it sounds like he's still a bit nervous. But they adapt pretty quickly, as you are finding out:)

    Thanxs for that I got to handle it last night it tryed to bite me but I waited until she tunred around . Once in my hand it was ok , it was squeezing my fingers quit hard is this normal or was it it felt threatened
  • Callum Ryan - 2014-08-19
    The squeezing is normal they are just trying to hold on. Think about it like you're a tree for them and that your fingers and other body parts and like branches so they just want to feel safe. :)

    SI.com has learned that Clippers owner Donald Sterling has hired prominent antitrust litigator Maxwell Blecher,moncler pas cher who has written a letter to NBA executive vice president and general counsel Rick Buchanan threatening to sue the NBA. The letter, sources tell SI.com, claims that Sterling has done nothing wrong and that "no punishment is warranted" for Sterling. Blecher also tells Buchanan that Sterling will not pay the $2.5 million fine, which is already past due. Blecher ends the letter by saying this controversy "will be adjudicated."

Also note that red-footed tortoses LOVE humidity. If your tortoise is kept inside or in an outside enclosure in an area with low humidity you must provide them humidity. If you can't provide a smoke machine/mister or frequent sprinklers, I have found it effective to turn a plastic container such as a trash can on its side, bury it a couple inches in the ground, and fill it up with mulch. Keeping the mulch wet all the time allows for a good humidified area that your tortoise can crawl into and regulate his own humidity. Enjoy your red-foot and take good care of him/her!

My friend has one named gloria and it's really surprising to read how aggresive they are. I don't know about you but it's the laziest pet in the house and hasn't displayed any aggresive behavior to the hundreds of people who've handled it in the 2-3 months he's had it. I hope it's not sick or anything.

    It's like if you own a tiger. It might not be aggressive if it's been taught to be around humans, and it's well fed, but one day it might have fear or his instincts might get stronger and, pop, it will attack.
  • Simon - 2011-03-30
    So long as the tarantula is eating on a weekly basis & the colors & hair look vibrant & fuzzy it should be ok mine is very lazy unless it involves food or making someone back away because he does not like to be messed with, if you have any questions please let me know I have been raising & caring for tarantulas of all kinds for 21 years so please ask away I do not mind at all.

    Simple answer to handling. don't. Obts are extremely aggressive and will bite if they have to. The bite is very painful. They're not recommended for beginners for this reason. They're also very fast. She is best left alone with the enclosure only opened to feed or clean which requires a lot of care and undivided attention from you. Honestly, if you're afraid of spiders an obt is not the pet of choice.
  • Dougie - 2014-10-23
    wud have 2 disagree wit many r all comments bout obt's i have mine out an about wen i can,just put mine bac in 5 mins ago,not overly skittish an a happy little spider..

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.
  • Derek Ross - 2014-10-22
    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
