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.

Nice sight, lots of good info. Bought my T the other day and love him, while I was worried about the venom and hairs I got over it quickly.

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)
