Well, at your age, there are two options as I see them:
A. Leave the issue alone, and be thankful your parents will let you keep 4 (which is 4 more than most parents would)
B. Prove to them you are capable of more. give it a few months with the 4 you have, and casually bring it up in conversation.

There is definately no shame in owning four tarantulas. Be responsible about those four, and maybe they will allow you to get more, maybe not. What kind of tarantulas do you have, and what kind do you want to get?

This is true

yes, but my parents are more afarid that they will get bit in there sleep, or our dog will get bit and die. I had a late T. gigas who was killed by my step-father, just cause he didnt like him and didnt want 2 call me out 2 get him:eek: i almost cried. I think that i will just move out and start my own spider cult.


Peace-out=D

You don't have to use latin names if you don't want to. It's a good idea to learn them and use them more often. Many times a spider can have more than a couple of common names. This creates a confusing atmosphere. Also some dealers just make up names to make that spider sound more exotic and appealing to consumers. The common names kind of annoy me because they change so often. Latin names are more stable. If they change, the changes are published, so there is less confusion about what species you are talking about.

First of all, let me say that my advice might get you in BIG trouble with your parents. So take my advice at your own risk.

But you don't really NEED your parents' permission to get another tarantula. You COULD secretly buy another one, and hide it in the closet or something. Way in the back, where no one will ever bother to look. That's the nice thing about spiders. They're pretty low-maintenance, so many species can do well stuffed in the back of a closet. Just make sure to water them and feed them when your parents aren't looking.

I'm not saying that you SHOULD do that. I'm just presenting other options to you.
