My partner have a pet tarantula named "Chuck" a Chaco golden knee, Grammostola pulchripes. I used to be afraid of spiders especially tarantulas because of their size and notorious reputation. Ever since we had chuck, my outlook on tarantulas changed, i'm beginning to appreciate them, they are really awesome creatures. Now, we have 3 tarantulas, a green bottle blue named "Gbb" and an advicularia versicolor named "Eight". It's really fun taking care of them and watching them molt and grow. Are you an exotic pet enthusiast? What do you think of tarantulas as a pet?
