are Ts able to get sick if the caretaker of them is sick? i just was wondering because i'm sick right now and am kinda worried that by being around my Ts while i'm sick that they may catch it and die. are my worries justified??

alright, coolness. i knew that cats, dogs, and other animals can get sick, but i did not know if the same held true for Ts as well. glad to hear that.

well theoretically they can get sick from you if you have what is known as a corona virus(a virus which can transmit the same strand from species to species via minor viral mutations)

although i have never heard of a corona virus jumping from a mammal to an arachnid it is still possible however unplausible it is.

not really something you got to worry about, should be more worried about coughing or sneasing on the lil guy and getting hairs flicked at you.

When your T is not active, he is being a perfectly happy, healthy tarantula. ;) When a T is active, it's either chasing prey, working on a web/burrow/whatever, or something is wrong.
