It's still a wee baby and I'm really a beginner, so this is a challenge how to keep it alive. While she is too young to be sexed I'll call her Vradica for the mean time.
To be honest I was quite surprised how popular tarantulas are as pets here in Philippines. Turns out they are actually very low maintenance pets and is perfect if you really cannot commit to tending needs everyday. Mine will probably eat only thrice a week and as it grows bigger it'll even fast for months. However there are still conditions to be met if you want them to last you for a long long time. I read that females can live up to 30years! WTF!
Also getting to know them opened my eyes that they are not S C A R Y unlike what the majority of media tells us (The Mist, anyone?). Of course it still depends on the specie, mine is very timid though and is quite popular being very docile.
Since I'm still a newbie I still have a lot to learn. And if you know something about taking care of them please don't hesitate to educate me~
Thanks for reading! Ja~ne!
