Re: Tarantulas Drinking
- Hi there, <br>All tarantulas need water to
live.....some aboreal types get water from droplets on leavels
but the terrestrial types need a shallow dish filled
with water.....occaisionally you will see your
tarantula with its head partly submerged and most of its
legs in the dish...when i first saw this it quite
alarmed me "my god...its drowning itself" DO NOT BE
ALARMED....this is how your tarantula drinks!!!!<br><br>Have fun,
- Hi all. I'm new to the whole tarantula thing. I'm hinkingof getting some docile tarantulas. What do you recommed? Any info wil be greatly appreciated.
- personally (im a little bias) i think that
grammastola rosea (rosehair, chilean rose, rosey) are the
BEST first spider...they are docile and will not bite
(except for extreme circumstances) Otherwise the Mexican
Red Knee (FEMALES) are good..a little more
flighty...but still fairly docile, both of these spiders get
4-6" in size and generally i lean toward suggesting
females for first spiders because they tend to live a lot
longer and they are less irratable, less flighty, and
much less stressful to keep in your
hand....;)<br><br>If you have anymore questions feel free to
- Hi Everyone. Well I got my Guyana Pink Toe and
Red knee earlier today. I'm very happy with them.
They both ate 2 crickets each. Not bad. I figure,
after being shipped around. I have a few questions; Is
it possible to overfeed a tarantula? Do they ever
regurgitate their food? <br><br>-Angel
- i just join the club and also bought myfirst
tarantula las wednesday, is a rose hair (soposli) 2 inlong,
at the bigining it won't eat but rightnow is like
imagen is that ok it eats 2 or 3 clikets daily o well my
e-mail is junglekid2001@... or in the messenger
just junglekid2001 i accept info on rose hairs coments
or anithing thx later
- One could certianly start with a Cobalt Blue (H.
lividum)...but it would be a terrible choice. They are very,
very, very fast...very skittish...and there are stories
that they are able to bite several times before the
victim realizes what's happened. As far as my experience
with these guys...they are good display spiders, but
you have to be really careful with them...they freak
out over very little...If you're looking for
something nice looking to start with...you may consider B.
vagans. They're pretty and fairly easy to take care of.
Good first spiders...just watch out for the hair
- I agree with you tina... G. rosea are great...but
if someone has a bit more money to spend a
Grammostola pulchra (Brazilian Black) are incredible spiders.
They are great beginning spiders. However, they are
pretty pricy spiders too.
- Hi, i just joined and took the liberty of adding
some new stuff to the site. I posted some pics in the
album...and went ahead and added some links. The links are
for people i have done business with and who treated
me well. That isn't to say that they are the
cheapest...but getting a cheap spider from someone who's a jerk
when you ask them a question about it doesn't seem
worth the money you save. Take a look at the
sites...they have lots of info and pics.<br>Enjoy!
- can some one help on sexing my tarantula, o have a rose heir 2 in long and also when ot will my a mature one <br><br>junglekid2001@... thx
- Do you have a scientific name?<br>My suspicion is
that that they are the same spider. There are several
"common" names given to this spider...and things only get
more confusing when you find that there are also
several scientific names that have been used for it
too.<br>G. spathulata, G. cala (supposed red morph), G.
rosea, are some of the scientific names.<br>My advice
would be to take a look at some of the online pictures
of Rosehairs and see if it looks the same. If it
does then go ahead and take care of it the same way
you would a Rosie. <br>Good luck...and in the future
make sure to ask for a scientific name.
- Hello! I'm new here, as you can see. <br>I'm thinking of buying a Cobalt Blue. Are they really as mean and nasty as most web sites say they are?
- hi i need to find somebody who knows about this type of spider as i have two of them i know they can be aggressive but my two seem ok and have even jumped onto my hand but i know little about them
