FIrst Entry

Hi. My name is Fuzzy Tarantula. I am (take a guess?) a tarantula spider. I moved in today with my pet girl, Jessica. I used to live in the biology classroom at her high school. I decided to publish this weblog so those who are interested can keep up with how I'm doing in my new home.

Welcome to my little spot on the (Spider} Web. While I am a living, breathing, growing creature, changes for me usually come very slowly, so there will probably be great lengths of time between differences that you can notice. BUT, when something does happen, you will find the record of the changes right here, so please check back from time to time to see what's going on. You are also welcome to make comments on the posts you find here, as well as email me.

If you think you might like to have a tarantula around, take a look at the links to the right for some good information on tarantula care.



So, with that said, lets take a look at some pictures. I live in a house called a Kritter Keeper. You can usually find them at any pet shop, or department store which has a pet section. I have plenty of room to move about, although I don't move much, unless I'm eating. THEN, I can move rather quickly. Here's a few pictures of my home, and me in it. (You can click on the images for a larger view. Just remember to click your browser's BACK button to come back here.)










I like to ride on my pet girl, too. Here, I'm crawling on her pant leg.




It can actually be a little troublesome for me when I climb on cloth, as I can be a little stubborn about being taken off. If I'm not removed correctly, I could lose feet or even legs. It's usually better for me to crawl on skin.







The floor of my home is made of a material similar to the soft insides of treebark, or the inside of a coconut shell. I also have a piece of flat rock for those times when I want a little more solid footing.




I can live a long time with proper care.


Come back and visit, again, soon!
