    Wow, you have the white knee tarantula? That's one cool spidey. No, you can't put 2 widows together, you'll just end up with one [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Female Black Widows only get about a 1-inch long at the most and the males are really small about a 1 or 2 cm. I remember seeing them in California under wooden benches. If it was me I would not put the Widows together.

    That is cool you have a tarantula, jiana54. When I was young I had a choice between buying a scorpion, tarantula, or a snake. I chose the Gardner Snake and named s/he Killer, had the snake for about 9 to 10 years. I loved it.

    yay! arachnids!
    we don't get black widows in australia but the next best thing:
    the redback spider!
    they look just like black widows. used to keep a few... lots of fun.

    I now have two scorpions and a huntsman spider (featured in arachnophobia - the hybrid types, not the queen)

    gherp.com sells all sorts of herps and arachnids for cheap. Try it, its grrrrrrrrrreat! PS: yes they do have black widows.

    For anyone who's thinking of a snake, go for it1 They make great pets, well the small ones do though, if you want to start out, try a California Kingsnake or a corn snake. If you want to start with a "big Boy", try a ball python. Make sure all the snakes you buy are from a respective captive breeder.

    Bugs is my thing so i'll give you some help here.
    The hooks (tibial spurs) are found halfway up (or down) the front pair of legs on a male.
    Some of the 'adult' chillis sold are actually sub adults and can still moult adult later.
    Adult T's moult approximately once a year (unless it is a male and then once it moults mature, this is when the spurs show, it only has a short time to live, roughly a year).

    Ok, so this isn't a Chilean Rose, but it is easy to take care of. I got this Curly Hair as a spiderling, about the size of this letter o <== Hard to see, but he's munching on a cricket.
