..from my zoo at home.. This is my new spider Esmaralda, a Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma smithi). She's 2 years old and about 8 cm across. Nothing fancy but still a very gorgeus girl! Looking forward to the photoshots of the future!

Well, I must be missing something. Roger has one of these too!!! Just seems like an unusual "pet." Beautiful colors Zunen!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Grew up in AZ with tarantulas thanks. I respect nature and all elements of nature but no way would I have one of these around.
