Today I tried (again) to play fetch with my A. Geniculata.
I tried with red balls, blue balls and sticks, but it just stays there or walks around in a confused way.

Can't I send a comaint to Ms. Nature?

I was just joking with him because he speaks Italian.

I've said: "pay attention because one day he/she will bite you :)"

You're using the wrong toys. My A. geniculata plays fetch just fine. I drop in several crickets. She runs and grabs all of them and makes her own ball. A few days later, I get them back - albeit no longer recognizable as crickets. What can I say? She plays a little rough with her toys.

Yeah but it has to return it to me!

She does return them! Granted, I do have to reach into the cage with tongs to pick them out. In pieces. But that's my own fault for keeping the cage locked! I'm sure if I left it open she would gladly bring them to me herself. :D

I'll plan on playing outside.
A park maybe?
You're so lucky! We don't have many tarantula parks around here. The dogs have a pretty powerful lobby so they grab up all the prime real estate for dog parks.

Just keep it on a leash, then every park is a tarantula park! Not many people are very accepting of t hugs though, mines so friendly always trying to hug all the people and dogs.
