Good point! Your right they don't get handled in the wild but honestly they wouldn't be in captivity either if it wasn't for humans. So since we do have them I would suggest trying it. Hell everyone I've heard that had or has a rosie had said they are like "pet rocks", very calm, don't do anything aggressive. (Except yours jr47) LOL By all means I'm not saying they can't (since again they are wild animals) but at least attempt it. I have a b. smithi and eventually I would like to hold him. (Just gotta work up the nerve)well, im agensts picking tarantulas up cos i dont think its right and they would'nt get handled in the wild so why do it in captivity. thats whati think anyways.
but, why not like ini
do you feel comfortable doing so?I know this is a controversial question but I just want opinions, I have a female Rosie and I want to know if I should pick it up or not, I've had her for one or two weeks and it seems like it has a pretty good temperament .
