I Love Tarantulas

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 69 People

    I'm a bit upset today.

    I went to do my usual rounds of my reptiles and spiders, spraying down and feeding, changing water and i found my Green Bottle Blue in death curl. I have put him into an ICU unit but i think it's too late. I hate this part of keeping animals and i really do get attached. Anyway...

    I am a keeper of spiders.

    This one because of his colours is one of my favourites. When we got him we couldn't see the colours and thought it might be a giant white knee, only to find out on his last shed when he turned bright red he is a Nandu chromatus or more commonly known as a Brazillian red and...

    I always held a fear of spiders just like most

    people, but I am the type who tries getting over fears so I recently went to an exotic pet shop near my house. When I asked to hold the tarantula, all the guy behind the counter did was take out the Rose haired tarantula container, opened the top lid and told me to pick her up...

    Tarantulas

    This guy showed me his tarantula and he was petting it and since I'm not a spider fanatic, I was like, yeah okay!!!  Not for me.

    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...

    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...

    Fortula is a character played by Nia Vardaros in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I love this actress and so used her characters name for my baby. Instar refers to the amount of times a tarantula has molted. The drive to own a tarantula hit me 3 years ago when I met my current...

    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 :).

    Arachnophobic.. No More!

    I was scared of creepy spiders until about 5 years ago, I was 25 and watched a 5 year old hold a tarantula, This made me feel bad about myself. I then decided to get one and get over it. Rick (my husband) threw a fit, he did not think we needed any of those in the house...

    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...
