Feeding Deadly Rose

My Chilean Rose tarantula (Grammastola Rosea) @ Rosy molted four days ago. I must admit to neglect her these past few months, maybe because she is just a very quiet pet! (unlike Kiki and Kaos)

I neglected to feed her crickets for 2 months. Yes, a tarantula can live for weeks, even months without food and water. The crickets supply at the nearest aquaria is so erratic, and I couldn't remember how many times I cursed the closed front door!

Anyhow I got a supply of crickets yesterday and dumped six fat insects into Rosy terrarium. And she murdered 2 of the poor crickets in a minute! Must have been SO hungry.

A Chilean Rose tarantula is said to be docile and a great tarantula for starters. I wish to bury my kitchen knife inside those who said so. My Rosy is so bloody violent and her fangs are almost an inch long!

Well, better a caged tarantula than a biting one on your hands....

Hurm... I bet all of my blog readers never had a pet tarantula.

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain 
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

My spider is not small and have huge fangs to bite me if I ever order her to climb up a water spout. :(

Nope. No spiders as pets. Just three fat, lazy, sleepy cats.

Until there is food involved. Then, they are just fat.

Any spider would be bitchy if left unfed for 2 months. I won't blame her if she bites you.

Maybe you'd turn into an evil spiderman. You'd love that, I reckon.

Tenci; that was ANOTHER tarantula - Myrkull, a Mexican Red Knee. Mogok lapar bila kaki kena putus.

Shadowthorne said...

ying_ko_4; Cats are nice. :) I have one of my own, but she is not that lazy.

Aizan; Personally, I hate Spiderman. Too chatty a guy. I wish some superhero can behead him.

Truth be told...spiders totally freak me out!!!
And a tarantula...brrrr!!!
Newayz....I like to look at them though...at a good distance!! I don't think they're poisonous......
I know the black widow for one is deadly though!!!

Shadowthorne said...

Vyazz; Tarantulas are as poisonous as wasps or bees... which are considered poisonous if they bite you. :) Exotic animals rock.
