A little more that a month ago I told ya'll that Sookie (my rosie) made an eggsac. The poor little buggars didn't make it. Guess I'm not a good breeder. Won't try that again. Now Sonny my Golden Rosie just molted. Looks just beautiful. She hasn't moved from that corner in a week. Maybe after she gets her strength back. My poor Charlotte I think is dying. I don't know what's wrong with her. She hasn't ate in about 2 months and just mopes around. When I look at her she reminds me of an old granny. She shakes when she walks and her legs are all crickety underneath herself. I think it's her time to go to spider heaven. I'm so sad. she was my first spider:(

    Charlotte died last night. But she had a great life. I'm going to load some pics up if it works for me.

    Sounds like she had a good home and life. I am sorry you are sad.

    I'm sorry for your loss! They're special little individuals and each have their own characters, I see it with my own Ts. I wish her the best in spider heaven.

    Happy holidays!

    My wife Tsunako and I owned a Mexican Fire leg Tarantula in Wichita, and it sounds about right,we did something similar, she mentioned her former friend Pablo did as well

    I'm not sure how old she was. I truely believe she died of age. She stopped eating so I thought he was getting ready to molt. After 2 weeks and no molt I tried to feed her every 2 days and she would never eat. She didn't eat for like 2 mo. Lost all the weight she had on her so I thought she was trying to hibernate. She just completely stopped eating. She had everything a spider needs and more. Just wish I could have done more.

    Loll, that's funny, never thought of them as fang happy, maybe we should give our slings chewing toys! Or maybe our fingers are just right.

OMG Lastnight me and my hubby were getting ready to hop into bed and I couldn't find my phone. So I turned on the light and THERE IT WAS!!!!!!! My Thai Tiger (very aggressive and potent venom)was just chilling in the front of my isolating fan. I was just about to turn it on IN THE DARK. I can't even imagine how that woulda went since she FREAKS at any wind. She probably would have launched at my face! omg scary! So we tried to just persuade he into a crittercage but she reared up and freaked out so i jumped around like the elephants did in dumbo when they seen a mouse. lol. the she ran in the darkness behind my door. after alot of work at 1am, trying our best not to kill her, we finally got her into a container. It was my fault she got out. didn't put the lid on right after I changed her water out. She hasn't been out of her tunnel in about 3weeks. If we hadn't seen her when the light went on I'd have never known she was out of her cage. I just had to share my crazy story.

I love my pet Rose Hair. She is such a pretty little girl, and quite nice to go with it. I find her absolutely adorable and interesting to watch every day. She is even somewhat comical sometimes, or she atleast seems as if she is trying to be. The other day I walked into my room and she was sitting on top of her shelter, just kinda sitting there, looking at me like "What?"

I've had my rose hair for about a month now, she's wonderful. She has been acting odd for about 3 days, I think she's about to molt. She is great to handle [just don't breath on her]. I would recommend these fascinating creatures to ANYONE.

Grammostola rosea is a gentile and soft tarantula. The first time
I held it, I was attached to it. They're a beautiful spider. I have a friend who told me about them. This is one of the best pets I have ever had.

I just picked up my first rose hair, it's awesome. I named him nosferatu. I've been playing with him since I bought him.

Hi there - I've had my rose hair for the best part of 6 years. She's bordering on 16 years old now and is full of life - gr8 when handling and for some very strange reason gets on with dog :-S - very timid and a gr8 pet.
