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.

This tarantula is awesome. I love watching it crawl across my hand and eat crickets. The amazing thing is i used to be terribly arachnophobic but my little spider Rosie helped me overcome my fear. in a matter of hours i had it crawling across me. They are incredible.

I love my Pink Toed Tarantula! They make great pets and are easy to take care of. I feed mine about once a week. Heads up on their molting. Today I came home and feaked out when I thought I saw two tarantulas in the cage. I thought, oh crap it's some how cloned itself, and the bigger one is eating the smaller one. Not so. It was only shedding its body, so just prepare yourself for it.:)

As noted extremely fast! I keep fast ones that bite. But ive had mine run up the side of the tank out and onto the next tank--im glad it never made the floor. faster than anything, ive ever seen it run up the end of the light, perched, and then i swear it wanted to jump when raising the container! GOT ADDRENALINE?

This is wonderful keeping a tarantula! Our tarantula eats mice and crickets. We love the tarantula, we brought it home and took it back at school. One day it spun a little ground web and it molted.Ewwww!The mucus was ugly.....
