pretty sad.Check this H.maculata clip out
These guys are insane. No considration for the spider at all.
One guy say's "settle yourself down" whilst he's poking it with tweezers.
Its like the odd parents who beat their kids round the head and shout "stop crying!".
Some people (through the power of ignorance) seriously want to be bitten.
How is this cruel in any way shape or form? On top of that, animal cruelty does not apply to spiders. Anyways, what makes an exotic any more morally significant than your "garden variety" critter?Sadly, some inexperienced kid will see that and there's "your accident bound to happen"
Too bad there isn't more regulation on cruelty to Exotics :evil:
well, it is hard to say what another person's point is... so for me to pretend would be somewhat sillyBut Caco...is that the point???
this is an excellent point that i definitely support as a decently experienced free handler of many different orders of inverts. some individuals are much more tractible than some mythical "average instantion of the species class".She's clearly familiar with this particular specimen, and has probably lots of handling experience with other taratulas too.
not me..i dont kkiill any insects except mosquitos and fire ants.I bet if you found a wasp in your bedroom or a 3+ inch wolf spider, you'd slap that sucker dead! I doubt that the vast majority would do a catch and release. And one man's weed may be another man's flower. To each his own. But I don't "play" with my Ts and I have a certain degree of repect for them. These vids have been dragged thru the threads at Arachnoboards, and I threatened the auther of the H. maculata vid (for a different vid he did, and yes, he's a member of this site), that I was going to turn him in. He PMd me and man was he pissed!
