My fiancee bought my Tarantula for me for Christmas. I am so happy to have her. I named her Charlott.......gee I wonder why.....lol.
Yesterday I watched her shed her ecco skin. She looked so helpless but this has to happen for her to grow. She is one cool pet.

Pokies do well co-habiting together even as adults as long as they are female. Male and females can live together until mature moult. Great if you want to have more than one on display!

Yesterday I got a baby Sunburst baboon tarantula at pet plaza. He is so cute. Already he ate a big cricket last night. When I woke up this morning I said, "wow, how can this little guy eat a cricket that's bigger than him". I also think he tried to make a vibration line to try and catch the cricket and he caught it. He has a little burrow with clumps of dirt over where he sits. The crickets always go to one of his three entrances and tease him until he turns around and starts to walk a little bit to them. When I came home today he was walking on the web then I guess he felt my vibrations and went back in.
Dont you think thats a-lot to happen in two and a half days!

I was reading the comments after getting my Pink Toe Tarantula today. Kind of surprised about the jumping aspect of it - mine hasn't jumped yet when I hold her, and to be honest if it does that might freak me out. I still don't have a name for her, but I am really glad I got her since she makes a great addition to the family and looks fascinating . She doesn't seem to move that much but maybe by morning she might be more active.
Definitely not regretting this purchase.

This spider looks so soft and fuzzy! It makes me want to pet it, and I really don't like spiders at all!

My husband and I decided to try bringing a pink toed tarantula into our home after having much success with 2 Rose Hairs. I have to say that I think they are a nasty little spider and very unsociable. It used to run towards the opened doors of its inclosure every time we opened the doors and poops down the side of the glass. Now it has a very elaberate web and will not come out of its web, I guess except for at night. Every time we have tried to handle it, it has jumped. I enjoy our female Chilaen Rose a whole lot more, and we are thinking of trading the pink toed in on something more friendly.

I bought mine last month, they were an inch long and now they are about 2-2 1/4 inches. I'm telling you these pokies can eat and they are fast. Can't wait for them to get much bigger so I can see the amazing colors of this species. And please don't handle them, pokies have stronger venom than any tarantulas. They are only for display, like a pet fisn in an aquarium.

My cousins and I went to the pet shop to find a pet and who knew we'd end up buying a tarantula? I'm not sure if my tarantula is a boy or girl, but I think its a boy. He's such a sweetie and hasn't bitten anyone so far. This expierience made me get over my fear of spiders and I hope to have him for a long time!
