So, reboot asked for pictures of my tarantula, and I said she was just very small…. so I thought, why not take close ups? Here is the wee one – he/she has eaten only 6 or 7 little crickets so far – I included a picture of him/her with a dime to illustrate size and also one to show what he/she may look like as an adult. They say it can reach a 6 inch span in 1 year, and grow to be up to 7 -10 inches! (7males – 10females) (Admin – you should have a category – not all of them are cute as hell!)

    I’d hate to have a pet that constantly tries to bite me..

    Will you be able to tell its sex after a while, and is that why it doesn’t have a name yet?

    There should be a “Scary As Hell Animals” tag.

    The cuteness, it will devour you!

    That’s a spider.


    How old is s/he?
    I vote we name it Pendleton.
    In fact, i demand it.



    $12 you say? I believe I have an investment to make at some point… cuz that’s awesome…


    Tarantulas are cheaper when you buy them as spiderlings because the mortality rate is higher. Not to mention that you can’t sex them until they’re older. I have a Pink Toe Tarantula that I paid $50 for because he was almost full grown. It wasn’t until his first shedding under my care was I able to sex him. I thought he was female at first, but now I’m pretty sure he’s a he. Tarantulas are awesome. I’d have more than one if I had more space – But I already have a cat, a betta and a Bearded Dragon, and… Read more »
