Get some merch :
I always get asked, “What’s the best beginner tarantula species?”
.. and I always reply “Arizona Blonde (Aphonopelma chalcodes).
Why? Mainly cuz they’re generally a docile species. They’re also;
1) Hardy
2) Get to a nice size (About 6 inches)
3) Slow
4) Doesn't kick urticating hairs often
5) Less likely to bite when not provoked
6) Low venom potency

  • You're over doing the danger of an Arizona Blonde... She wont hurt you...

  • I might get a pet arizonan blonde but let's soo what my parents think about it. The Arizonan blonde has venom and it's less dangerous than other tarantula venom but if your allergic to the blonde venom it can be fatal. They are pretty nice like exotic is talking about and showing.

  • My son has been asking for an Arizona blond. I’ve been reading all about care and everything and I’m ready to get him one. Can anyone recommend the best place to order? And should we start with a baby or a larger one? Any help would be appreciated.

  • Today I found a Huntsman spider on my wall! When I saw it I screamed and still realized I still had phobia about spiders! But exotic lairs really boosted my confidence to trap it on a plastic container and free it outside!!! :D No one would probably read this but that was so cool and I was so proud of me! :D ♥

  • I’ve always been iffy with tarantulas idk I’m not the type that’s like “eeek Spiders” I’m really not but idk I mean I never handled a Tarantulas I’m ok with them being near me and looking at them. If someone was to put one on my hand I would be like “ehhh..just as long as you don’t bite me or something we’re good..” I can appreciate the beauty they hold but I’m like “I rather you stay in your home..”

  • I live in Arizona and had a wild female live on my property for 12 years. Although she was wild she was mellow and really use to human interaction by always staying at the entrance to her borrow when we came out. During mating season so many males came to try to mate with her. I was really sad when she didn't come up one year after hibernating but she had to be old since she was there when I moved in.
