I knew someone who had a pet tarantula a while back. He loved her to pieces. I dislike spiders so would never like one as a pet but that by no means gives me any right to judge you or any other out-of-the-norm pet owner.

I can’t watch the video, but good for you! Stand up for your non-traditional pet!

@Spinder:  I respect your decision to have a tarantula as a pet.  A dog isn’t a pet for everyone and same goes for tarantulas.  As long as the pets are safe and happy, who cares! I can’t watch the video either because I’m so squeamish when it comes to spiders.  =)

@Spinder:  My younger cousin had a tarantula as a pet for about 14 years! She and my uncle found it in their back yard when she was really young and they kept it. They’re not for everyone, but to each their own 🙂
