These are my other pets: spiders and cockroaches
Here are my beloved Tarantulas. I only have four right now, but have plans on getting more...
Brachypelma smithi . This one just moved up to an artichoke jar from a salt shaker tonight. That is a US Nickle.
Brachypelma emilia. This is the best picture I have been able to take of it in a while. Sometimes I can catch it all the way out of the hole but the second it sees me, it dives back in its burrow. Luckily for me, it made a window in its burrow in the chamber it usually stays in. It is getting so colorful!
My Lasiodora parahybana . My mother still doesn't know about this one. When I bought my B. Smithi, I just added this one to my order without telling her. Oh yes, the one that is going to be the biggest is the one she doesn't know about. Great planning on my part. Hehe That is her currently with a US Quarter.
My beautiful Grammostola rosea. I bought her on a whim, and just love her.
And yes. Cockroaches. These are my Tiger Hissers. They are big and beautiful, and lots of fun... if you are creative. If not, they just kind of sit there.
I did a whole series of "Roundpenning Roaches" when I happened upon my old horse toys one day.
"Get her out of your hula-hoop."
"Introduce the rider."
