I want a pet tarantula. My husband and daughter do not. I am trying to convince them that tarantulas are nothing to be feared, they are easy maintenance and they will come to love him/her. They aren't listening.
I had a neighbor growing up who had a pet tarantula. I was fascinated by it. He let me hold him and it was such a thrill. They can't be handled much, but don't mind being held every now and then. They aren't harmful to humans, and are really very docile animals as long as you do your research and get the right kind of tarantula.
Here is a guide to owning and taking care of a pet tarantula. I think I'll just buy it and keep it on the coffee table for Jason and Casey to look through on their own time. Don't get me wrong, I do hate finding spiders on my bathroom floor, or any other place they shouldn't be, but for some reason, I have never been scared of tarantulas. I have let them crawl all the way up my arm before, and it really is awesome. You should try it!
