Mine, the Grammostola pulchripes.

docile beings, can grow up to 8 inches.

not actual pic though, mine is still small.

So, legit question. Aren't you scared of them biting you? Do they or will they bite? I'm stupid scared of spiders, no idea why, but I've always for some sick reason wanted to have a pet tarantula. They don't creep me out as much, but I'm still worried about getting bit, or it making sudden fast movements, which also freak me out. I'm probably not cut out for tarantula ownership now that I think about it lol

Yes, I'm very scared of spiders, thats why I started raising these majestic creatures to over come my fear and it worked. All animals that have fangs bite, but my tarantula ( that one above) rarely bites. It'll only bite if it's extremely stress and sort of last resort when threatened. They're very good for beginners like me cause they're generally docile. So far, no reports have been found that tarantula venom causes fatal injures, unless of course you have an allergy of their venom. It's really fun and rewarding if you're raising a tarantula, especially when you buy it as a spiderling.

Fellow invertebrate keeper :D
Currently have an Avicularia veriscolour myself, im more of a beetle, stick insect, and mantis keeper though.

I always like arboreal tarantulas. I'm planning to buy one too.
I'm still a beginner though, just started 3 weeks ago when I first got my chaco.
User avatar #103 to #86 - harbingerwolf (03/22/2013) [-]
Arboreals were my first. Had another Avicularia sp. before this one, although it didnt live long unlike this one. I've been keeping mantids and other insects long before though so it wasnt that hard compensating :P

I'm going to get a Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula, they don't get enough credit. Though they're massive in size, they're the most docile tarantulas I've ever encountered.
User avatar #72 to #70 - heeveejeevees (03/22/2013) [-]
The Theraphosa blondi? those giants are never docile. Ever. Anything that moves within its territory is considered food. trust me.
#251 to #72 - zzcorey (03/22/2013) [-]
He is correct, dont not get a Theraphosa blondi if you want to handle it. If it doesnt bite, it will ruin your week with its hairs. A B. Smithi on the other hand is extremely easy to handle, it was my first tarantula, and one of my favorites -- along with Haplopelma minax, though that was easily the angiest spider Ive had :)

sooo, i see you have a spider

i myself have been looking for a pet tarantula...

can you advise what age and what species a beginner should purchase his lovely pet tarantula?
User avatar #259 to #150 - heeveejeevees (03/22/2013) [-]
There are many types of tarantula you want to try as a beginner. I'd suggest the Grammostola rosea, Brachypelma smithi which landartheconqueror suggested, Grammostola pulchripes or the Brachypelma albopilosum. These are great starters because they're incredibly docile and would rarely bite (unless threatened). It's good if you start raising spiderlings or slings as they call it cause its cheaper that way. Also they only feed on live food, so pinhead crickets are your best bet for feeding a spiderling. I feed mine pre-killed nymph Blatta lateralis (turkistan cockroach) cause they're easy to breed and less maintenance.

oh my gosh so many Latin names. gotta go look 'em all up now haha
User avatar #260 to #259 - heeveejeevees (03/22/2013) [-]
which zzcorey* suggest. woops.
#255 to #150 - zzcorey (03/22/2013) [-]
Brachypelma smithi was my first one, very easy to maintain and very doscile (and pretty!) . Perfect beginners tarantula, I would buy my first one as an adult or close to it if I were you. Maybe a 8+ cm legspan, though less can do it if you insist on having it at an early age. Make sure you give it actual dirt (cleaned dirt you can buy at a pet store), so it has room to "dig", and give it some kind of shelter, like a piece of wood it can hide under. Goodluck :)
User avatar #271 to #255 - landartheconqueror ONLINE (03/23/2013) [-]
what about coconut husk? i saw that at a store, and fell in love with that.
#273 to #271 - zzcorey (03/23/2013) [-]
Make sure you get fine coconut husk, the main thing is that the tarantula needs to be able to dig and mold its burrow. I see too many people put stuff like sand in there and just have a stressed out tarantula sit in a corner with no place to hide. If whatever theyre using at the pet store looks like a tarantula could dig (or even better if they have a tarantula thats already dug in a bit), and you like it, you can just ask the same kind.
So noting that, make sure you give it atleast 4-5 cm's of substrate.

(Im assuming "coconut husk" isn't some common name for a tarantula I've never heard of and youre talking about what substrate youre going to use)

That being said, a B. smithi doesnt dig that much, not like its going to disappear into the ground never to be seen again :P but to have optimal conditions, it really needs the option to mold its surroundings.
