I got my rose-hair when I was 15 and I am now 27. My 12 year old spider is in great health (she is big and beautiful). I took in another tarantual because her owner couldn't keep her any longer and I have had her for 6 years. My children love to look at them and help me feed them. If you are thinking about a rose-hair I recommend it, they really are wondeful, just make sure that you know that you could have it for a very long time. Both have a great temperment and don't mind being held, as long as you respect them and watch for signs of anger or stress. Bring your arachnophobic friend over... watch them change their mind about spiders! They really are great pets.

i got my theraphosa blondi 4 weeks ago. Shes agressive and not to easy to handle. she eats a lot. i have a large terrarium 80x40x40 because shes huge and needs a lot of space! Other than being agressive and leave urticating hairs, i dont have any problems doing what i have to do in the terrarium with the spider in there. She never attacks me because i respect her and if you respect her space you will probably have no problems. but i strongly dont recommend this spider to a beginner, because you will probably pay for your errors very painfully!

I have four sliders, two males and two females. They are 25 years old and very large. I am currently incubating 4 eggs and expect the babies in June! Turtles can be a lot of work to take care of, but they are worth it if you have the time.

I just got my Starburst Baboon and man, people are right they are FAST FAST FAST and MEAN too. Mine has already started webbing up it's den. Some say this species is terrestial and I for one believe it's partly arboreal. They are big and do climb glass. I wanted something just like that. Had my choice between her and a pinktoe and happy with my choice. You want something that actually does something here you go. Just remember, you are buying a spider after all.

I like your web-site because I learned what that black stuff crawling around its neck was(mites and ticks). Now my iguana walks around healthy.

My boyfriend and I got a very good deal on a softshell and tank set up. we named him "flapjack" and gave him some native live fresh water plants. he seems to lean more towards the pellet food rather than the school of guppies he shares his tank with. we are very happy with our snap judgment on taking the little guy. our dog loves to watch him swim around.

I have had a ball python now for about two and a half years. Her name is Chocolate. I am 13 years old, and they are amazing pets. (especially for beginners!!) Very easy to care for, dont require much. Mine once went for 3 months without eating simply because I re-did her cage. Very picky eaters, but are excellent pets. Gets along great with everyone. Never attempted to bite. Love reptiles and am thinking about getting a Bearded Dragon.

I rescued a Boa Constrictor Imperator (Emperor of the Boa Constrictors) from a certain death! He now has a huge cage, private bath and neat rock.....he hates heat lamps and temps above 80.
His name was Theasius because he was an escape artist, but I renamed him Kilroy...fits his know when he's been around!
HE IS GOD AWESOME BEAUTIFUL AND HAS BECOME 5'5" IN A YEAR! He was an underfed and under handled snake, now he's an every day explorer and fed once a week. He is my buddy and has head bunted me once when he did not want to go back into his huge home,.but he nipped my oldest son who was ticking him off. Otherwise he is a loving and parrot like Boa. He prefers being on your shoulders, heavy boy too, and loves to watch as I am on my Mac.
He likes to rest on my bed and snuggle on my dialysis days, sneaking into the covers and sleeping, acting like my guard dog when I sleep. I am not sure I rescued him or he has rescued me. He is my Emperor Boa and my Family loves him, all 8 of us, from my 1 year old to me. I can't wait till he is 7 feet long.....nor can my wife. He is a goofy rep who loves to sit on your shoulders or lap and be petted. He loves his head and throat stroked...weird huh?
