I just convinced my arachniphobic mother to let me catch an Oklahoma Brown and keep him. I named him Puck after the Character in A Midsummer Night's Dream. The second day I was able to pick him up and let him crawl on me. I noticed he wasn't eating much, he's going to molt as I found out. Anyways these are great tarantulas, and I love my Puck lol. :)

P. Metallica's are actually not aggressive, as is true with most of the poecilotheria genus. The Metallicas are actually considered the least aggro. Pokies are, however, extremely skittish. They are also considerably faster than avics and such, so it is much more difficult to handle them, and it's very easy to spook them while trying to contain such a speedy animal. The bite from any pokie is considered to be among the most venomous of any tarantula, along with Stromatopelma Calceatum, Heteroscodra Maculata, as well as some Australian species(all of which are much more aggro than the average pokie). I am not suggesting that anyone take this species lightly, but if you get a pokie, do not expect the temperament of an obt, king baboon, cobalt blue, etc.

I just saw an enormous spider whilst walking my dog (Austin, TX). My husband didnt believe it was a spider and so I took him out to see if it was still there. It was. Whilst I was climbing up the walls, my husband was studying this rather beautiful creature. He has lived in Texas for 30 years and has never seen one. I am from England and in five years have never seen one. We came back inside and googled. We believe it is a Texas Brown Tarantula. I guess I should be delighted for the experience.

My b-fren's spider saben got out of his 40 gallon tank and is nowhere to be found . He got out before like 4 times and always went to the same spot. I am scared I am going to wake up with him on my head. I will die! I love him but I won't pick him up.

Mine and my fiance's chile rose is called Maleficent (after the evil witch in sleeping beauty). We've had her about a month, she is fantastic. I love it when she does a weird tap dance thing on the crickets before eating them, she's evil and I love her for it.

I have several species of tarantula. I have had my chilean for two years, and he is the only one that has never bitten me. He is a sweetheart. If your child want's a spider, this is the one for you. Picture a teddy-bear with "8" legs. A cage will be useless.

They do not have needles, they are a species that have hairs that ich and burn. They flick for protection but this species is the most docile of its species. Look at them compared to others at pet stores, most flickers have bald abdomens, but the rose hair has most of its hair, or even all of it.

I just recently purchased my rose hair and I love her to death. Her name is Bella. She is my first turantula and I think shes an awesome breed for a beginner, so I don't know why others are saying they aren't. Since I haven't had her too long, I haven't noticed any of these mood swings that everyone is talking about. So far Bella lets me hold her and has never bitten me yet. She caused me to flinch pretty bad once when she was in my hand and she still didn't bite. Everytime I feed her she pounces on her food, which is pretty awesome to see. Rose hairs are fantastic tarantulas for anyone!
