I have four P. metallicas and although pretty, they are not as lovely as the pictures. The Poecilotheria `tigris` appears far more attractive to my eye.

i have had my pink toe named siobhan for about 3 months and she is fabulous. she is quick when you hold her, but she has never bitten. she poops when she gets mad, it is more effective! and she has only done that twice. she is so fun to watch.

I just got my rose hair yesterday. I had been bugging my parents for one for years now and I had finally convinced them to let me get one. His name is Vlad. At first I had expected him to be skittish before he got used to me, but the second I picked him up he was calm and content. I was taking pictures of him to show my friends and he didnt even mind the flash. He just sat there quietly and seemed to not mind. He loves to be held and is very friendly. I hope to have many happy years with him. (writtem on 4/20/06)

Never..Ever...EVER..get bitten by this spider..

It is fast, faster than you think and does attack as soon as it realises your hand is in the enclosure..

Its venom is semi-paralytic...Limbs will stop moving..and it is definitely a trip to the local A&R..and its bite is far, far worse than a Chile Rose or Mexican Red Knee...

Be careful...Other than that...Don't have nightmares :)

Hi my name is Anthony. I had a rose hair tarantula and it was so cool. I would always scare my mom and friends with it. That was funny. i was sad when I got rid of it. I had to get rid of it because my grades went down but I plan on getting another one.

I have kept a red-knee for obout a year. I bought her when she was about the size of the top of a coke can, now she is about the size of a coaster. She has shed atleast five times, once i walked in on her in the process, i left the room to not disturb her and came back later after she was finished. Another time i walked in on her and out of the corner of my eye noticed her move strangly, this is because she had just flipped back over from molting!! Her entire legs were pink like crab meat and as soft as noodles!! her legs werent straight at all, she looked like a land octopus. Anyway, keeping her has been exactly like the care sheet said it would be, i guess you could say she has proved every part of it correct. I keep her in a 20 gallon. She has a unique anxious temperment.

Somebody who is now quite fond of Pink Toes - 2006-03-07
I haven't kept this spider as a pet. But, if I was thinking about adopting a tarantula, I would look at this one first. This site has been very helpful, especially since I have been researching the Pink-Toed Tarantula for a science report i am doing.
