I got my first rose-hair in april 2012 and since then she has shed twice but after the second shed(i think it was sometime between may and july) she started to become more aggressive and every time I went to put my hand in there a week after she reared up at me and threatened to flick hairs so I thought I'd give her some time but now everytime I go to pick her up she goes to bit me I feed her once a month and make sure she has clean water everyday, I just don't know what to do I don't want to get bit or anything but I also don't want to get rid of her I miss handling her please can someone help? Thankyou

    Rose Tarantulas are known to be unpredictable. Some will start out like yours, passive and then get aggressive, especially after a molt. Others will start out aggressive and then become passive. Basically I suggest leave her alone until these moods pass.

    I just read your post and the first thought I had was why do you only feed your tarantula once a month? You should be giving her at least 3 crickets a week let alone one a month. That may be making her apprehensive. Try feeding her regularly and you will find her temper will change.

    Yea if I only ate once a month I'd be a little cranky too! This spider must eat 2 to three crickets a week.

Hello I have a red footed tortoise, I just wanted to know if I bought an exo terra water fall and pump, would it benefit him and the humidity of the vivarium, seeing as it would be a great feature?

I was fishing last night in the river and I caught 4 of these turtles from 6 to 9 inches! I still have them, was going to put them in my pond as pets but I wanted to see if they were rare and if so does anyone know who I can send them to? I also caught a baby alligator turtle, just checking what to do with them if they are on the endangered species list?

    I have a female mexican red knee ( currently very active & having a good spin on her viv walls) i've had her a week this friday & have no bother with getting her out. Tonight was the first time. Yes she flicks a little at first but is fine once out. If you gently persuade your t with your finger from her side she will make her own way up & just have your hand ready. Don't be too gentle, you don't want her to think you're a cricket. Just push with your finger. Mine makes her own way out really which is handy xx

These animals are awesome. I would not want to be stuck in a room with one of these. I do wonder what type of venom this lizard produces.

Hi, I live in Oklahoma and find a lot of scorpions that come into the house. How would I go about trying to sell them to people who are interested in these type of scorpions?

I Have a Whites tree frog named Mr. Croaker and I keep seeing photos of bright green Whites Tree frogs. Why is he not like that?

    White’s Tree Frogs, like all tree frogs, can change color depending on environmental conditions. Things like temperature, humidity, light intensity, health, and the color of their surroundings can affect what color a White’s tree frog is.
  • Shawn Handley Jr. - 2012-04-08
    Also there is some different coloraton between these frogs. I've seen them from sort of red to green to grey to even sort of blue.
  • Shaylin Elizabeth Jones-Silva - 2012-04-12
    Mr. Croaker is normal! I have a couple White s Tree Frogs and they have a large difference in their color spectrum. Some White TFs even have SPOTS and may develop more as they age. As long as there isn't drastic change in behavior, then he's perfectly normal. Not all humans look the same, and frogs are similar in that sense.

    I would like to buy a pair of white tree frogs. I live in Ga and for some reason frogs are not a big seller; if they have frogs there American green tree frogs or red eyed tree frogs or fired bellied toads.So if you have any knowledge of any for sale please email.Thanks Vickie

    Tree frogs aren't that common by me, either! But I got mine at petco for about 15 bucks. If you have a petco by you, they probably have them, but be sure to call petco before you go over there to get the frog.

My soft shell turtle (squrtel) is a female, I found it in garden lakes rome, ga. Although small, she has a big appetite. I caught 1 before. I kept the water cold and clean and he was well fed and 5 days later he was in turtle heaven. Now we have a club called club wild, it is only 1 dollar to join if you want to learn more about animals. Thanks for listening.

My pinktoe that I just got yesterday is doing pretty well, but I have to keep her under a heated light of 75 watts sitting on top of the cage until I can get her a heating pad. She goes up to the top of the cage (normal) but she sits directly under the light (is this normal?). I know that her sitting right under it could potentially cook her, so I will move it but she just follows the light. What should I do? Should I be worried?
