My female golden starburst is 2years old and my first spider I've kept. shes stunning to look at but not usually seen during the day due to a very deep burrow lined with silk. she has also got a raised nest up in the corner of the tank which makes maintainance difficult when shes in residence.s he can be insanely agressive if upset and i have never seen anything move so fast, but will readily come out after dark to wonder the tank.

I've had my baby MC for two years now and she's a beautiful creature, in the beginning I was nervous about holding her, however she's used to all the attention now, and I have had no incidents with her. Although they require minimal care, it is important for people to research this creature before owning, they do require certain care EVERYDAY, and only should be owned by those willing to take on that EVERYDAY responsibility. While I encourage other people to open up to the idea of owning a rose hair, please make yourself aware of all the aspects of ownership...keep them safe and love them as you would any other animal in your care!

i got this spider when, (she?) i think, was about a 1/2 inch. it is now about 1" and a quarter now. she has only molted twice and has gained size quickly. i have three other tarantulas and this is the only one that i will not handle. very fast and aggresive. good eater, i have seen it take down crickets about her size or a little smaller. Uncharacteristically of this species it has used provided housing. i can't wait until it gets bigger so i can sex it and so it gets its adult coloring! fun to watch.

We currently own over 60 tarantulas and several of the avic genus. No cottonballs or sponges are necessary for the tarantulas. They are quite good swimmers. Those things just harbor bacteria and parasites.

My sons tarantula, Tallulah has just shed her skin. She had been very docile and did not eat anything for a few week. I went into her to check her water and she was laying on her side with her legs underneath her. I thought she was unwell as I had expected her to be on her back. I removed the cricket from her tank incase she was unwell but when I checked on her the following morning the sight was amazing. She had totally shed her skin and is now black with pink hairs as aposed to brown with orange hair. I have put the skin a glass jar as it looks amazing, her fangs are also visible. We have never had a spider before but she really is an amazing creature, i would recommend this as a pet.

I'm glad I read this. I just got my spider yesterday and I would have definitely been freaked out if I didn't know they molted and shed.

Rose haired tarantula's come from a desert climate and they are used to no humidity. they love it hot and dry not humid. mine hated it humid she has thrived in the dryer climate.

I love my rose haired tarantula. Though they say that they are okay to hold, mine is really nervous when i try to pick it up. But it's still cool to see it eat crickets and mealworms. I saw it molt and I thought it was dead. Luckily, it wasn't. This is probably the best tarantula for beginers and pros alike.
