Okay, okay, okay.... enough about scary spiders already! These things make great pets! My hubby is an entomologist (bug-guy), and has a hobby studying spiders... He'd be an arachnologist if he could make a living at it! Anyway, we have around 18 tarantulas in the house right now... consisting of 6 or 7 different species. (I keep losing track of them all!) I'll attach a picture of one of the spiders. Our biggest one is the mommy of most of them. She is a Trinidad Chevron, & her name is "Chevvy". She is really a beaut! The photo attached shows one of the species that we have.... I call her "Houdinette" as she is always the one that escapes! We don't let Spotty in the "Spider room" without supervision, as he is always trying to help them escape!
