i picked up a tiny 4 month old rose hair the other day, and she is beautiful! she is very quick moving, and she loves to jump around her tank, something i thought was quite weird for a rose hair lol. i haven't held her yet as she is still too small, but i hope to do so soon. rose hairs are an ideal beginners spider, and a hardy species that i would recommend to anyone.

I have had a rose haired for almost 11 years now. Oscar is her name, this was before I learned that it was female. She is very calm and allows me to hold her at any given time, she has never bit anyone before. I recommend the rose haired as a pet to anyone.

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)

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.
