(Ill post a
pic of mine tomorrow--Batteries ran out on the camera)Btw the one in that pic is slightly smaller than my one.
One more thing it has to be a unisex name cos I cant sex it for a year or so and I wouldnt want to give it some sort of complex!!!!!!

Cost was roughly €70 including heat mat,bedding for the spider and enough crickets to last a couple of weeks.
I already had the tank(An old aquarium)but I did have to make a lockable lid for it as spiders can apparently escape from hinged lids.

Esmerelda, Ruby, Spidy?
Ppl might be thinking I'm presuming it's a girl, and they'd be right. If it's not a female, it'll only last a few years. Males have quite short life spans (5 years approx, whereas females: 25). Depending on species of course. Is it defanged? It's an illegal export, if not. They had a bit of trouble with exotic animals recently.

Sorry Shaman "de-fanging" a tarantula is a myth.How would the thing eat its natural food??????????And its captive bred so I havent a clue what you`re talking about---Illegal export????
The only species as far as I know which is Cites protected is the Mexican Redknee due to the fact that Americans were collecting them for pets while they were on holidays in Mexico.As for venom no-one has ever been killed by a Tarantula.

Please post a link to the pic only. I'm an arachnophobe and I'd rather not see a filthy tarantula on my screen! Seriously. Please don't, and if anyone else does, when I recover, I'll hunt you down and fúck you up.


I'm serious.


As for the name, why not "Satan?"
Or else "Shcaramanga" - when you introduce it to people, say it with a Sean Connery accent. That'd be great!
