I've got a goliath bird eater. Shes a girl and I've had her for about 5 months now. Her name is Anabel. Lately she is acting really weird, i think she is going to molt soon. She hides in her log all the time, even at night. I just hope shes ready to molt, but i dont want her to molt in her log because i dont want to disturb her tank and rip it up once she's finished molting. She's cool though, but frustrating at the same time.

I got a female Indian Ornamental and out of the 65 i have, she is one of the best. She is fast and she can eat a full grown gerbil. She is only 1 year old. Her colors are very bright and she is a very tempermental spider, more for show than anything. I paid

Before i started the first year of animal management in college, i was petrified of spiders. Now in the second year, i convinced my mother spiders are awesome and i brough a chili rose, Honey. I have a 2 year old sister, and as usual she has a lot of energy. When i get home from the farm she pesters me to get Honey out. Honey has taught her to be gentle and that animals are great. They are the best to learn with and starting off small helps gain trust and curiosity from the little ones. Even now we love to sit and watch her hunt and sleep, she is so incredible. My little sister likes to see her move, so she gently strokes her back legs to see her walk up my arm. She will sit there giggling for ages!
P.S always keep children supervised with all animals, including spiders (obviously).

I have just recently gotten a rose hair for a pet and she is wonderful. I am 13 and at first i was nervous to hold her, but when I did she was very calm and great. Now i hold her much more often and enjoy it. These tarantulas make great pets.

i now have 2 rose haired tarantulas, not kept together of course. I am having a hard time determiningg the sex of each and their age. I consider their age from when i purchased them. I have had one, Charlotte, for a year and recently purchased "Wednesday". The pet shop said they have had Wednesday for at least 6 months. Charlotte has molted once...it was facinating...

Hi my name is Ashley. I am 13 years old, i got my rose haired tarantula yesterday and her name is claire bear. She is 4 1/2years old, so far she has been great, now she is all over her ten gallon tank. She moves more when i play country music and everyone loves her. She's gentle and shy in some ways. She's been one of the best pets we have have and cleaner than our ball python. I love this tarantula and hope to have her many years. P.S this web site helped me the most, thanx

We found a baby tarantula in a water bowl. She is very well tempered and was caught from the wild. Again, she is such a great pet, we let her loose in the back yard at times to hunt for herself and she comes running when we start slapping the ground. I would definitely recommend this type of Tarantula for a pet.

My girls found our tarantula in our front yard. I do not like spiders, but i think of ours so different. Ours is an adult male I think. He has long legs, black with a coffee colored middle, a dark brown butt, two hooks on his butt, and two small hooks on the front legs. We live in northeast oklahoma. I hope he lives long but i have read that they do not.
