Arguably the most aggressive and beautiful captive tarantula out there!
I found one of those in the woods once as a small child. It must have escaped, because I have a feeling blue tarantulas aren't native to the PNW

I caught a spider once and kept him for a while and would feed him and what not. He was hanging out on my porch for like 3 weeks so I said .... it and brought him inside. He wasn't even half the size of that sucker, but he got to be pretty big...about the size of my thumb and he was only about the size of my thubnail when I took him in. I named him Peter (as in Peter Parker.)

Spiders need love too.

That's actually really cool. I'm not sure I would have let him live if I'd have found him in my house, so I'll just enjoy your pictures and videos.

Most of the spiders I see around here are boring brown colors. And if I see them in my house I will kill them indiscriminately. I think there's a good reason most people have an instinctive aversion to them. I'll admire them as creatures all day long... with either a sealed tank or the internet between they and I.

I stomped one tarantula outside my house in Cyprus once, and nailed another one that was lurking in my shower. Sneaky hair throwing feckers.

That is beautiful! Tarantula's are very cool, I love how mean they look when they get on their back legs and show off their fangs.


"Come closer boy..."

I remember helping my brother out at the pet shop he worked in and they had a baboon Tarantula that was very aggressive, feeding it was ... interesting lol.

I think the little guy looks awesome. I too am curious as to what type of spider it is.

I really have no problem with spiders in general. Some of you would freak out at the site of some of the wolf spiders around my yard and the yards of some of my landscaping clients. Also the abundance of garden spiders around here would keep people inside for days

The only one I absolutely DESPISE are Black Widows. I see them sometimes. Those are some mean looking bastards. Plus I know those things could hurt me or some one else.

FYI there venom is only potentially deadly to those with allergies and babies.

True, but can't you get sick or get some necrosis from the bite?

It's possible (bacteria and whatnot), but that is more common with brown recluse bites which I've seen the damage they do 3 weeks down it will eat the flesh all the way to the bone right over the bite. It is quite gnarly. I'd equate it more to a bee sting or wasp sting except it hurts worse and probably makes you nauseous. I think the effects only last like 3 hours though or something like that. Babies have a high fatality rate though from black widows if I'm not mistaken, either way I'd avoid them.

Ah I did not know that, does not sound bad and we do not have brown recluse spiders at all, which is good. Thanks for the info.

I saw a black widow the other day and had to kill it because it was living on the trashcan in the yard of one of my elderly landscaping customers. So if they were bitten they would become seriously sick.

Anyway, any ideas of what kind of spider is this new pet? Looks awesome!

Better safe than sorry

Not 100% on my info if you're really interested I suggest google for it is all knowing

brown recluse are native to galveston so I see them all the time. They like attics, dirty clothes and furniture.

A friend of mine use to keep spiders in a little jar habitat.

And then 1 day he threw in an earwig he captured.

Mean freaking bugs those earwigs...


Btw They can also survive being doused with kerosene, lit on fire and for several minutes in the microwave...

I see him from time to time.

Nice pet
Anyway, I really like this thread Love the pics and videos, keep em coming . Also, if you do another video, can you video it capturing/hunting/stalking the 'food' you put in there? That would be groovy
