Congratz! Looking at her butt, it like she should flip over and molt as soon as she gets settled in too!

I own tarantulas and I know ladydreamer does as well.

Welcome to ze addiction!

Are you new to owning tarantulas?

I think tarantulas are one of the easiest pets to tak ecare of!

I had one for 5 years and I loved her.
Rose, her name, was a Chilean Rose Hair Trarantula. I don't ahve any pics of her but she was awesome!

Your Orchid is very pretty. :)

I had one named Ricky Bobby. He liked to go fast. Great pets; very easy and so much fun to watch! I had him outside when it was warm, so I went out every dusk, fed them, and watched them crawl around.

I have four right now. I got a gift certificate for Christmas for more though. I am so excited!

Congrats on the new, cool pet.

I've always wanted a pink toed tarantula...but Hubby is absolutely terrified of spiders, so I am afraid to spend the money on one and come home to find it squished, because he panicked and killed it!!!

I love them because when they are walking on you you can hardly feel them!! Very cool!
