My mom has a black widow infestation in her car port in Texas
I caught one to keep as a pet when I still lived there and she flushed it down the toilet

I have an adult female G. Rosea as I've stated, a rather young male B. Smithi, and that's about it. But as I said, I have a lot of history working with tarantulas that are never recommended for beginners.

You know the latin names Awesome.. Well my B.albopilosum and B.vagans are still juveniles.. I've dealt with the G.rosea and B.smithi and had a A.avicularia gave her to a friend for his birthday.. I'm glad to have met a fellow hobbyist.. Hope we'll share stories about our little friends sometime..

lol My favorite is the Barn Funnel Weaver. They're so shy that there're no documented cases of them biting humans, despite being one of the most commonly encountered spiders in North America. I handle them bare-handed, every now and then.

Longbodied Cellar Spiders also aren't known to bite us. These goofs depend on shaking their webs really fast as their top defense/attack, though the large females can look intimidating.

Don't get me started on the cuteness of jumping spiders.

I'm letting a Cross Orbweaver decorate my front porch for Halloween.



I'm not a fan of dangerous spiders running loose in my vicinity, however.

I should of read the title closely
The moment I saw one of those spider pics I fell out of my chair. How stupid of me to come to this thread knowing my fear of spiders.

Jumping spiders are my all time favourite! they are soo cute and adorable. The peacock jumping spider has the greatest colours. They are too tiny though I would definitely have one as a pet, but feels like I'm restricting the spider when I catch one.. I like that you like spiders

Whoever said napalm was a bad idea was a damn fool. For I see no reason why the world shouldn't be cleansed of these 8-legged abominations no matter how "helpful" they may be.

I like spiders. Except the ones in Australia that hide under toilet seats and jump on you. That's scary stuff right there.
