Tarantula Tip

Tarantulas are not dangerous, are often quite beautiful and can make good pets. As with all spiders, they are venomous, but their bite rarely causes more pain and suffering than a bee sting. A small aquarium or plastic storage box will do for most tarantulas. Adult tarantulas will need only one or two meals a week. Caring for a tarantula may be a long commitment; some females live 20 years or more.
