One thing I noticed in the ailments discussion is a tarantula laying on it's back described as being sick. Tarantulas normally molt in this position and so is not an indication of illness. A dying tarantula curls it's legs under it's body like a clenched fist instead of flipping on it's back. Great discussion otherwise! Check out arachnopets.com for more information on tarantulas.

HEY I HAVE A TRUE ZEBRA TARANTULA AND IT CANT BE HANDLED BECAUSE IT'S DOCILE AND MOVES VERY FAST AND JUMPS AND IVE HAD IT FOR 6 MONTHS OR SO. I GOT BORED WITH IT SO I BOUGHT A ROSE HAIRED TARANTULA YESTERDAY AND IT IS ONE OF THE KINDEST REPTILES I HAVE EVER HAD. I HOLD IT AND ALLOW MY 4yr OLD SISTER TO HOLD IT. SO TO ANYONE THAT WANTS A PET TARANTULA IF YOU ARE A BEGGINER ITS DEFINiTELY BEST TO START OFF WITH THE ROSE HAIRED BREED . WHATEVER YOU DO DONT CHOOSE THE ZEBRA BECAUSE IT LOOKS COOLER.

I just got my tarantula today and it makes an awesome pet. For some it may not be the best but when it gets comfortable with you it is kinda cute. I say its awesome.

I got my spider 6 months ago. I've seen her molt, have funny moments with her prey,(crickets and mealworms) and I've even seen her rip her webs off the floor like a carpet and add bew ones. they are VERY interesting and I don't know why people call them "pet rocks".

My little brother, 12 years old, got his turantula about 2 weeks ago. It's pretty creepy. But it's calm and just about to molt. I held it for the 1st time today (i'm still a little shaky lol). And my brother picks it up ever once in a while. It gets a lot of attention. I would recommend the rosehaired Turantula as a pet if someone wanted something creepy!

I once owned two of the Starburst Baboons. One was very aggressive and would come after anything that moved in his tank, and the female was aggressive and would display even if the tank was misted. They were stunning creatures.

I used to keep many different species of tarantulas and found these to be the most beautiful with the possible exception of a pink-toe that had teal hairs.

I have recently purchased a rose haired tarantula and I am considering getting a pink toed next. Exotic animals are far more interesting than the typical domesticated pet. Thus far, my research has confirmed my commitment to make the pink toed my next purchase. The idea of a vertical terrarium sounds facinating. I would like to put two or three in one terrarium. I can't wait. Thanks for the great info.

Like your web site. Me and my wife got one 5 days ago and I really love my spider. My wife is really scared of spiders but she holds this one. my spider is very calm. I got a female and she is just very calm and she never tries to bite and i'm really glad i got her.
