But everytime I think about it I get a shiver down my spine to think that it would be in the same room as me (right next to my bed) and in the same room with my Brother's Hamster. Will this pass after I buy a tarantula and fully understand it and its behavior? I am afraid that if (maybe I should have said when) I get bittenthat the fangs will go to the bone and that it will hurt like crap and that I may lose the pulse in my finger ...whoa that wasa long sentence. Will this fear of the bite also pass? I really want to get one and I don't think these will stp me from getting one but it would be comforting to know that tarantulas can be nice and friendly and not always out to get me. Please answer before tomorrow because that iswhen I am going to get one...I think.
