Animal Planet Tarantulas


Aug 12, 2011
Pretty pleased with this book. It is written by Micheal Jacobi. He operates Tarantulas.com and he is the north American representative of the British Tarantula Society.

The book is a quick read and doesn't get too much into detail about many things but gives a quick overview about tarantulas, breeding, and keeping. I received this book as a gift and am pleased with it. I recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about getting a tarantula. It's definitely a beginner book and great for people who are interested in learning about tarantulas but not big into reading. There's not a lot of personality in it, but more straight forward information. Textbook reading almost, but couple that with nice pictures and good information and it's hard to get bored. Can be read in a couple of hours though.

Overall I give it 4.3 stars.
