    Naming a pink toe tarantula Socks is like naming a boa constrictor Cuddles.

    She's a very cute little gal.

    It was a brown recluse; but this is about Devon's spider.

    Friggin' !*@#*$&$*(!@&*#&!*! A brown recluse bite will make you rethink everything from housecleaning to putting on your shoes! What repulsive little buggers! "Socks" is still cute though!
    Good growing, Jack

    Is it really their jaws that they can bite a person with, or their mandibles? I think I remember something about the venom fangs being inside their mouth. Or maybe that's a different spider...
    Either way, very cute. Most tarantulas have a slight air of creepiness but the pink toes are overwhelmingly charming. (Still not sure I wouldn't be pretty startled if I stumbled across one unexpectedly.) Is the body soft at all, or is it all stiff and shell-like under the fur?
