Thought this might be a fun topic, with V-Day coming up.
WAIT. YOU'RE A WOMAN? I NEVER KNEW.My husband used to kill spiders that he found in the house, but I have educated him, and now he just captures them for me to identify and relocate.
I wouldn't say that my husband was ever afraid or disliked tarantulas, but even after he stopped killing spiders, and I started keeping Kukulcania hibernalis, he was indifferent to the idea of having tarantulas. I got an Avicularia avicularia as a birthday gift from my mother, and that served as a good icebreaker.
He has definitely warmed up to them, especially Skyler (my second Avicularia avicularia) and Dozer (my Grammostola pulchra). He likes to feed them and says he likes having them as pets "as long as you do all of the work."
You'll love the ladies here, mate. Everything's bigger in TexasI don't need to worry about that since I am SINGLE!!!! and will continue to be until I move to Texas. I do look forward to the day a lady asks me what my hobbies are, that way I can say "oh, nothing special, typical things like playing an instrument, watching the Dallas Cowboys, raising live tarantulas, you know things like that"
