    I have one. They are great pets. They don't require much care, don't eat much and make no noise. I have mine in a ten gallon tank. For substrate, I took some peat, wet it and packed it down in the bottom of the tank. I cut a coconut in half, and then cut a door in it for the hide box. Keep a dish of shallow water. Throw one or two crickets a week. Keep the temps at room temp. Keep them in separate tanks. If you break that last rule, it doesn't really matter, the female will eat the male and you'll be back to one spider per cage anyway. That's about it. Just like any pet do some research online before you buy it.
    Send Death66 a pm, he's the spidar expert here.

    i can have any pet other than any type of "bug". 6 foot pythons in the bedroom, no problem. a chinchilla cage that takes up a 1/4 of the living room, no problem, noisy geese outside, no problem. a joke about getting a tarantula will get me slapped upside the head by Darla EVERYTIME.

    lol Darlas even been bit by one of my lil spotted pythons and she will still mess with them. he got a good hold of her too. good thing he's only bout 3 ft long. she has a mild phobia about bugs though. she hates the cold but the only thing keeping her up here in the great white north is the fact that the further south yah go the bigger the bugs get.

    You got that right. Used to live in NC before moving to Nebraska. We had a Cairn Terrier that would love to chase mice, but down in NC, she would actually chase the cockroaches, as they were 3" or so long!

    I owned a male rose hair for quite some time, wish it had been a female, they live MUCH longer. and while your looking at inverts, give Scorpions a try, they are AWESOME!
