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.

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.....

I just got a rose-haired tarantula from a guy who's going to the Navy. They are so cool! everyone said they are creepy, but they really are neat. Plus, i'm an 11-year-old girl which makes it all the more weird. Tarantulas rule!

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".
