My cousin found a big ol tarantula walkin the streets the other day and he knew I've been wanting a tarantula for awhile! So I trade him a 10'' subwoofer and an amp, both of which I've had sitting around for a year now for it! It turns out it's a Texas brown tarantula, a female at that! So I dug out an old cricket tank for her; cleaned it up put some peat moss, a little hideaway cave and a saucer of water for her. This is my first tarantula so I was shakin like a fuckin leaf when I went to pick it up for the first time.. Turned out to be a real chill pet, she's a slow moving docile thing; I let her chill on my shoulder, a warm fold in my shirt, or even on top of my head for hours while I'm watching tv, on the computer, or whatever. I fed her a big cricket when I first got her; she jumped that thing in a heartbeat. Good thing is you only have to feed it once a week so it's a low maintenance pet too. Also she can live up to 35 years old, so that makes her worth two dogs at least! I named her fluffy I got a couple of pics of her and everything Anyone else got any creepy crawly pets?
