i forget what species of tarantula it was but i had 1 for about 4 years... i loved him to death... i used to hold him, let it crawl around in my room and since i sleep on my back he loved to sleep right on my chest... the only time he was ever really in his tank was when it was time to feed him... and i fed him those large crickets you would see outside during night time... he hated the store bought crickets... i would go out during the night and catch like 2 dozen of them at a time... i miss him... he was 1 of the best pets i have ever owned...
Huge respect to anyone who can deal with one of those motherfuckers!!!
Is that her making those 'servo' noises when she moves?
You've got balls, so kudos to you :) I don't have the guts to ever be that close to a tarantula, let alone one that big, but I like to admire them from afar :p She's a cutie :)
OMG Zilla is so adorable and omg she is so energetic wow shes so cool and wow ur brave man I am a arachnidphobic person but watching u just do that it makes me think how cool it is to care for a trantula instead of being afraid wow but Zilla is so adorable. OMG
You, my friend, have balls of steel.
do spiders poop?
WHY IS HE TALKING TO THE THING LIKE IT IS A NEWBORN PUPPY HAHAHA
holy shit, that zilla making noise (0.0)
OH LAWDY. That spider makes SO much noise!! For a spider of course..
I had a Mexican red leg tarantula for 6 years. Your "Zilla" is huge compared to him.
do you keep all the spiders you breed in captivity?would it be inadvisable to let them roam free in your garden?
what is her favorite meal?baby mice?
How do they hiss? Like a vertebrate pushing air or like cricket rubbing together body parts? Or something else?
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why was she stridulating if she isn't upset, which is SOO cool sounding!
I think you're wife might be jealous of that spider, you seem to talk to that sweeter then her
What happens if you're bit by this thing?
awww thats kind of cute. are they venomous? you sound really scared lol
You can hear the spider walking. You can really hear it. I´m from Sweden and up here the biggest spider we got is a so called Raft Spider with a body about 2 cm.
I wish she didnt die...poor Zilla i miss her allready
I hope you've got a wheelbarrow to carry around those huge balls.
respect for the shirt
Honestly, its the spiders with the long ugly spindly legs that freak me out more than this. I would much rather handle this than a giant huntsman spider.. or a fucking revolting camel spider.
oh my, she is so big, i would scream, i don't think you are stupid, i think you are very brave and i admire your love for spider, i am too scared of spiders but i would never hurt them, i get my husband to get them out if they end up near me
It's bigger than my kitten
I'm in love.
If I see one of this in my room or family room I will run naked like a mother fucker, then I call 911...
That's very fascinating. I congratulate you for your boldness. As a spider fan I would also like to have such a tarantula. However, in a closed terrarium!
I love the sound she makes makes while walking, is sad she retired but thank you for sharing this with us I enjoyed it.
is it me or when it moves it makes a sort of soft slithering noise? do all tarantulas do that>
"Get the plexiglass." I'm over here like ohhhh crap....
why is it making that wierd noise when it walks ?
I can't full screen it's disturbing but amusing. To watch
I want to have a go of holding the spider
That sound she's making is called stridulating
arre humano arre!!! xD
So big you can hear her move! That's awesome! You don't have to have arachnophobia to be afraid of being bit by that! :) She's a gorgeous girl.
in the history of cute fuzzy tarantulas that thing is so fast that it can almost outrun me fast waking WOW btw love your tarantula
Holy fucking shit
"They're not that aggressive."He says while being pinned to the ground.
FUCK. THAT. SHIT.
I never new they were they noisy, is she vocalizing all that sound or is that something else
Why do they make that noise when they walk? makes em extra creepy haha
