Tarantulas are amazing and sooo beautiful! at the moment I only have one but there was a time I had 50 (and thats not including the 125 hatchlings me and my family reared for sale - legit of course, theyre members of the british tarantula society and used to breed for them) I only ever had one girl flick hair at me and it was my fault anyway, all the others have been very well behaved. I used to love getting to feed them when I was a kid and watching them make their webs.
Gannyaan, thats great that its helping your phobia! Having grown up with them I have no problems with tarantulas but having been in a relationship with someone deathly terrified of them I can see why some people are now. But theyre such amazing little creatures I cant help but be drawn to them
