I have just recently gotten a rose hair for a pet and she is wonderful. I am 13 and at first i was nervous to hold her, but when I did she was very calm and great. Now i hold her much more often and enjoy it. These tarantulas make great pets.

i now have 2 rose haired tarantulas, not kept together of course. I am having a hard time determiningg the sex of each and their age. I consider their age from when i purchased them. I have had one, Charlotte, for a year and recently purchased "Wednesday". The pet shop said they have had Wednesday for at least 6 months. Charlotte has molted once...it was facinating...

We got a rough green snake about two months ago. At first everything was going well. She was active and ate well. She actually got depressed when my 13 year old daughter, her "mommy" didn't hold her every day. She loves being in a place where she can watch what is going on from her aquarium. She recently began looking like she had small scratches on her. I read that it is possible that the mulch we were using could be the cause of the problem. That it may scratch and stays too moist when misting the cage. They recommended that we use an indoor outdoor type carpet on the bottom of her home and put shredded newspaper over it and to change it every day. She sometimes likes to burrow and hide and I am not sure the newspaper will be sufficient, but they also said that the calcium substrate wasn't the best idea. We love our snake and want to keep her healthy. I noticed that you here are rather attached to this kind of snake as well. We recently went to a reptile expo and there wasn't a snake there that could compare to this little green snake in personality and looks. We love these snakes!

I got a turtle in march and he is just awesome. He is such a hyper little fella. I hope to own him for the rest of my life because they live for 20-70 years if cared for properly.

Hi my name is Ashley. I am 13 years old, i got my rose haired tarantula yesterday and her name is claire bear. She is 4 1/2years old, so far she has been great, now she is all over her ten gallon tank. She moves more when i play country music and everyone loves her. She's gentle and shy in some ways. She's been one of the best pets we have have and cleaner than our ball python. I love this tarantula and hope to have her many years. P.S this web site helped me the most, thanx

We found a baby tarantula in a water bowl. She is very well tempered and was caught from the wild. Again, she is such a great pet, we let her loose in the back yard at times to hunt for herself and she comes running when we start slapping the ground. I would definitely recommend this type of Tarantula for a pet.

Hello, we live with our Sulcata here in California. We bought our Sulcata for $l00 when it was 1 week old, now it is 1 year and 2 months old. Its name is Mohammed, we call it "MO". MO is very smart and comes to us when we call his name. He loves to be petted and recognizes his meal of fresh, crisp Romaine. We have not started his calcium, which we intend to sprinkle on his Romaine. We hope to add other desireable greens to his diet soon. He is self-disciplined as he will do his daily 'duty' only during his time in his swimming pool we have provided, which makes it easy to keep his roaming area clean. MO is a very happy and content tortoise! We enjoy him very much!

My girls found our tarantula in our front yard. I do not like spiders, but i think of ours so different. Ours is an adult male I think. He has long legs, black with a coffee colored middle, a dark brown butt, two hooks on his butt, and two small hooks on the front legs. We live in northeast oklahoma. I hope he lives long but i have read that they do not.

I'm so fascinated with this gentle baby. It started as a b-day gift for my son. I call her 'spikey'! She is such a joy, when it's play-time for her you'd see her wanting to be picked up like a baby in a playpen. All she wants is to walk and get a little excercise or to be held for comfort & reassurance. By the way, they do have a good memory and remembers things, too.

I have a male Granite Ball/Royal python. I've owned many reptiles before but I think ball Pythons have to be the best. They are easy to care for as long as you have time to regularly handle them. TIPS: NO HEAT ROCKS NO NEWSPAPER
