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.

I just got my 3rd rose hair. This one was just a few weeks old. My first two were quite pink in the center and looked very pretty and fairly large. Wonderful pets easy to care for and great if you rent. I never picked my original ones up however since I have purchased this one so young I am hoping I can get it used to human contact.

My brother has a rose haired.. she is very creepy crawly like.. her name is Rosie and she is quite interesting to watch.. she mostly eats crickets and she seems to be happy with them. i'm not sure she likes our company, either that or she is very interested in humans.. because as soon as we talk to her she sits still and it is almost like she is listenin contently

My rose haired tarantula is named Rosie. She is very low matenince and cost only $50.00(plus tax).It's real cool to watch her climb around.One night, right after we got her, she fell asleep eating a cricket(LOL).
