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.

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!
