    RobC is an inspiration for me! He has hundreds of video's on YouTube.

    The colours of a tarantula are at their brightest straight after a moult! Also, if a tarantula loses a leg somehow, it will grow one back on the next moult! The leg wont be as strong as the others, but it gets stronger and stronger with each moult after!

    once she's finished eating we check for any remains of anything and pick it out with tweezers, clean the water dish daily, her substrate gets changed every 6-7 months and she hates it...nasty people ruin all her webbing :/ she's top though can be interesting just watching them
