    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 :).

    Fortula Tulip. 8th Instar As Of Today...

    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...

    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...

    Tarantula Lover For Life

    I used to fear spiders. It got so bad that my mom decided to do something about it. Eventually she got me over my fear of spiders. She always tells me that she did too good of a job. My first tarantula was a male named Boy George. Til this day I have never met a tarantula like...

    Newest Member Of The Family

    I've decided that enough time has passed since my rosey passed away, so last week I went to the pet store and got another rose hair. Just by observation, I'm pretty sure he is male. For some reasons pet stores only seem to sell male tarantulas. I have named him Eduardo.

    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...

    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...
