    My daughter would love all of these but i will confess there not my thing but i would have a go at holding one if the owner was there for morule support. I tend to like snakes better but we all have our own babies,...

    Hope and Peace are my daughters hope is easy to handle but not that often where with peace you cant keep her in loves to wander to much.

    When it's feeding time she's out and on and up your hand she's what her owner said a real sweetheart if you ever decide to hold a spider deffo go with a euathlus sp yellow as they ain't big only 4-5cm as a adult as i'm more in to the smaller types lol & still looking for more like gree/blue/gold and violet plus other euathlus sp's.

    Just bough today Paraphysa scrofa Chile Pink Burst (7-8cm) can't wait till tomorrow when it arrives.

    I had to make myself look at these to see if I was still scared & I actually feel a little sick.

    Sorry :eek:

    Other than the fact that they are spiders - they look really lovely I'm sure.

    I wish I could just get over this adversion I've got but I can't.

    I think it's lovely that you've given them all such lovely names :)

    Thanks for sharing

    It's easy to rid your spider fear as i was the same as you in november 2007 and youv'e done the first step by looking at pics which wasen't easy for you as you said felt ill.

    The steps i did and it does work over time and take it one day at a time what i did was pic first then on to videos on you tube when i got past that point i decided on the next level a tarantula moult which i did eventually.

    Once i did that i went on to a point of no return a real tarantula at a shop where the owner is a friend and being honest it wasen't as bad as i thought it was my teen daughter asked me what it felt like only thing came to mind was tickelish like holding our syrian hamster.

    As my daughter also had a fear of spiders also who i helped by doing my simple steps she recently held my 4cm female euathlus sp yellow (chili yellow or also known as bumble bee) and know she loves spiders.

    And a word of warning tho if you do hold a spider and you do buy one it doesn't stop there as they become addictive as i began with 1 in november and now have 38 arachnids.

    Good luck with what ever you do ps when it comes to house ones i am working on them as i dont like them due to the speed and majority of time threat pose.
