    Thats really cute :D


    *shivers* There gonna give me nightmares but Im still curious.

    In the wild does the mom just leave the sack there? And wander off?

    Guess they have to grow up fast then.

    Another question that been bugging me do they make a noise at all?

    I would never get one but I have more respect for Tarantula's thats not saying any house spider is safe from being squeshed.

    They will stay around mummy for a bit, then wander off on their own. Mummy makes the egg sac in her burrow, so she isn't going anywhere!

    No noise at all.....except for the tubs of crickets!

    If I can convert 1....just 1....it would be great :D

    It's an amazing hobby, with so much more to it then people think. So many different species, with amazing colours!

    I am not so frightened of them now, My fears are not so bad so that must mean I can get closer to them to KILL the leggy buggers.

    Err no sorry, not a convert here :D
    They're very interesting to learn about as long as I don't see piccies. I was looking through to try and desensitize myself to them, like I looked up ones that I kind of knew what they looked like so I knew what I was letting myself infor when I looked at a pic, and the ones you've posted I just scrolled down really slowly.
    It's sounds so pathetic I know =]
    But the OH came over and showed me pics of Camel Spiders (look 'em up, hate me later) and I freaked out. Heart rate shot up, panicked, it's ridiculous. This is why I have cats =] No spiders are safe, and no future children of mine are having them as pets, no way no how.
    Having said that, I did kind of like the purple one you posted a pic of. Purple I can almost, almost, get on board with.
