I Love Tarantulas

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 64 People

    I Need Help (I Think)

    I belonged to a Tarantula (Support) group for years and they were kind enough to advise me on the care of OPIE, Unfortunately my computer crashed along with the web site I used, so I googled Support Groups and here I am. Opie started molting last night. His 4th since I had him...

    Self Prescribed Therepy

    I used to be terrified of spiders. This coming from an avid outdoorsman. Four years ago I decided to attack my fear head on. I figured, what better way to get over my arachnophobia than to get my own pet tarantula? So I bought a juvenile Lasidora Parahybana. Well, I quickly found...

    Love Tarantulas And All Invertebrates

    I've been raising tarantulas and several other kinds of invertebrates, including centipedes, scorpions, millipedes, and others, in captivity for many years. My favourite tarantulas are in the genus Haplopelma but I like all tarantulas in the subfamily Ornithoctoninae a lot :).

    They Are Neat

    I first met tarantulas at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources program for children. When I took my kid to the Scales and Tails programs for the Junior Rangers a frequent guest might be a tarantula. And these "oh so scary" critters were allowed to be held bare-handed by...

    Shadow

    I bought a chilean rose hair tarantula about two months ago.  I couldn't make up my mind as to what to name him.  He has a hollowed out log with a water and a dish of green gut-load for crickets.  I finally named him Shadow because he hides in his log 95% of the...
