My iguana (Lewis Michealangilo Kiniski) loves it when I talk to him! I will feed him then talk to him for about an hour! He loves it! Also he loves when I pet his head and neck!

We have two Testudo Graeca (male & female) and keep them in an outside enclosure (we live in a desert climate). The male one is much smaller than the female, and is extremely shy. Whereas the female enjoys our company. I love that they will be my childrens' "lifelong pets"! We're all very happy with them!

Gila monsters are a protected species under Arizona state law in the United States, and may not be killed, or kept in captivity without a license. They are listed as a threatened species under the United States Federal Endangered Species Act, as well as in Mexico. It is against Arizona State law to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect this animal or any attempt to engage in such conduct. I just saw one wandering around outside my house the other day.

These tortoises are so loving but they do require a lot of care but it is worth it! My tortioise actually ran kinda fast for a tortoise but she was amazing!

My Chilean Rose Hair molted last night. I actually thought it was dead at first. Then this morning my son thought it multiplied due to the exoskeleton right next to it. it looked really weak but now after a few hours its regaining some weight or bulk and looks healthier. Best pet I have.

we have a royal pythoon called freddie, he's about 8 months old and has a lovely temperament. he just did his first complete shed and we're like proud parents. his tail seems to be going hard and dark but the shed was complete from the tip of the tail to the eye caps.

I have owned rose hair Tarantula's for over 14 years. First, as far as handling, I recommend a person putting the hand in the tank first, check your Tarantula's response, then gently nudging from behind, urge the tarantula to your hand. 'Rosies' can vary much in their behaviour. avoid loud noises in the area, any violent movements, etc. when handling any Tararantula. Any fall from even 2 feet could be fatal to a tarantula

We have had our male rose-hair tarantula for 3 months now and have already experienced one molt. That has to be the weirdest thing ever. We kept the old skin and my son loves to show it to his friends. The tarantula was given to us as a gift and we were told it is around 9 yrs. old now. This one was not bred in capitivity. It was originally found in the southern-most part of the desert in Utah, where we live. He is very tame and has a great temperment.

I just recieved my first Antilles Pinktoe spiderling a week ago. Its no bigger than a dime. I noticed that it was the most active of the 5 spiderlings that came with the order (King Baboon, Chaco Golden Knee, Brazilian Red and White, and Brazilian Salmon-Pink Birdeater). So far, it seems to be doing well. I have it in small circular plastic container that is ~3 times taller than wide. Its an empty Parmesean Cheese container. I drilled many small holes all over the outside for ventilation with a moto-tool and several in the top cap. The snap top features makes it easy to add food and water. I placed a small branch in the container for climbing and turned the small deli cup, used for shipping the spiderling, upside down on the top of the branch. It has webbed up the inside of the deli cup with several strands attached to the branch. It seems to spend most of its time up there. I'll move it to a larger container when it grows a bit. I keep it on top of the fridge, towards the backside, as there is a noticable current of warm air from the condenser coils. This situation provides off and on ventilation as the fridge cycles and the warm air flows up and then across the top due to the cabinetry. For high humidity, I add about a cc of water per day to the bed-a-beast substrate, and spray the outside of the deli cup with a syringe, where a few drops of water pool up along the upside down cup ridge. We'll see if this configuration provides the humidity and ventilation for good husbandry.

I love my Pink-Toed Tarantula! I am in a fraternity at Wichita State University and everyone that sees it, even if they don't like spiders, are fascinated. I have had many spiders in my younger years, but they are great if you can't have a pet (dog, cat etc). They are low maintenance and fun to watch. Today, there was two people who handled Charlet, that's her name, and she is a very humble spider. Charlet has never bitten anyone. The only thing she does is hop around. It's cool. Tarantula's are interesting insects.
