I got a chilean rose a week ago to get over my strong fear of ALL spiders. It's a sub-adult at 8 months old and I have done a lot of research. I believe it's gonna molt as it's not eaten since I had it and is now getting grumpy and showing threatening behaviour, and isn't moving much either. Also its rump has gone darker with an ever darker bald patch. I can't seem to get the humidity above 64% but "psycho" seems to be okay. I have to wait for my red knee as it hasn't hatched yet at the stockists. I have now totally gotten over my fear of spiders and would recommmend chilean rose to anyone as a pet. They are docile when not in pre-molt stage but are not fast moving, so risk of dropping or injury is less likely. I just wish that I could be certain 100% that it's gonna molt.

Hiya, I've recently bought a pinktoe, it's my first one. It's only a little one yet but it seems to have made a web in the corner of its tank and blocked itself in. It's not eaten for a few days as there are still crickets in the tank and it's not come out for a wonder, like it usually does. Could you let me know if this is normal or if there is something wrong. Also, when does it molt and how many times a week should I feed it. thankyou very much!!

I Am 12yrs old and I Wwnt a pink toed tarantula very much but my mom doesn't want me to have 1. I have wanted 1 for awhile now, they seem very interesting and fun to have (even tho they are not really the kind of pet to play around with a lot). I want a female spiderling pink toe and they have them for $15 at a pet store near here. I don't know why my mom doesn't want me to have 1. Anyways this site have been very helpful, thank you.

I bought my tarantula some months back and ever since then I have fallen in love with her. My mom wasn't really for it at first but she was the one who ended naming her, Isabelantula. I found that the best way to get her out and hold her is to coaz her into something then onto my hand. I'm constantly trying to learn more about my spider and I try to teach others that she's not as scary as they seem to believe.
I want more but for the time being but my mom won't let me.
I suggest that anyone who wants a pet that easy to keep care of to get a tarantula, I love mine.

I like your websight and was just wanting to know how do you tell a male from a female rose haired tarantula? I was told once but forgot if you would please email me back and let me know all you can about them. Thank you.

I'm going to get a rose hair tarantula and I'm sure I'm going to love it! My mom is freaking out about what she's going to do when I go to college. She says she'll give it to someone, but I think she'll be attached to it when the time comes. I plan to name my tarantula Sid. Thanks for all the tips btw.

As this is likely to be the spider people purchase if they wish for a handleable pet, here's a few tips. Firstly, by far the easiest way to pick up a Tarantula is to put your open palm in front of it and carefully coral it onto your hand with a paintbrush. Take it slowly, place your hand in the tank in front of the spider (but at a distance) and gauge it's reaction, if it looks aggressive, give up now. If the spider reacts calmly or not at all it's likely safe to gently prod it and let it walk onto your hand. Make sure your movements are slow and that you do not breathe on the spider - sudden movements and the sudden gust of breath can frighten the spider, either causing a bite or a scared spider that jumps and falls from your hand (anything over 1-2 feet drop can prove easily fatal). Do not attempt to handle your spider if it recently shed as it will be very fragile until the new carapace hardens and also may be more defensive than usual as a result.
Just remember to take it slowly and carefully and your spider should be fine with being handled.
