    Oh, good lord... several years ago, I went into a local pet store to see what Ts they might have. The kid who worked there said that he would handle all the Ts, including an H. maculata. I was just starting to learn about tarantulas at the time, but this seemed like a bad idea, with obnoxious brats running around and such. It could get scared and bolt/lost. Of course he recommended a heat mat and a sponge in the water dish.

    Sort of related: I was at the local reptile fest. I went up to a booth with a few Ts in Critter Keepers with a dusting of substrate. None of the enclosures had labels so I pointed to one, looked like G. rosea, and asked what species it was. The lady looked around and said "um, rose hair?" I asked about another T, which looked like A. seemanni. The lady said "same as the other one". :eek:
