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.

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.
