My husband and I recently bought a 1 year old Rose Hair Tarantula for ourprogram at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. The elementary age children are studying about the interconnected web of life and how all creatures are important to the survival of others. As part of this unit we are reading Charlott's Web. The children love Rosie and I've heard my husband walk by her to give a cheery "good morning". I never would have thought that I could have emotional feelings and attachments to a spider. Thanks for the information it is very helpful.

I've had a G. Rosea for 3 weeks now, she is very docile and quite, she molted two days ago, I'm very lucky, I've had her for 3 weeks and I already saw her molting. I thought she was dead because she was still for more than 10 hours. Thank you for the information, tarantulas make great pets, easy to care for and very interesting animals.

Hello. Reaper is our pet. He hasn't been eating, and I was afraid, but now that I know it's most likely because he's about to shed, I feel much better. He's actually my boyfriend's idea, as I am aracnophobic, but being very calm and docile, he is slowly helping me to overcome my fear. Watching him eat and move and react to his environment has much overcome the fear I've had of spiders, though I am still a bit unsure about actually holding him as yet. Definitely a good idea for a pet. Even for aracnophobiacs.

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.
