well today i was holding my 1/2" Avicularia avicularia sling! my sister who is around 2 touched it, so it jumped in her hand, my sister screamed. I couldnt calm her down and she started whacking her hand up dont back forth trying to get it off, i thought my sling was a goner, after searching for hours i decided to give up, then i felt a tingling on my chest under my shirt to find my baby avic!!!:) i put her back into her cage and moisted up her cage, i hope she will do ok! just felt the need to share this with you guys! man people have serious arachnophobic reactions:eek:

I'd veture to say that most two year olds shouldn't play with spiderlings. Lesson learned atleast, eh James?

My 6 year old neice hates Spiders. I had to reassure her my tarantulas would not purposefully escape from their cage and target just her. I know how kids can be around animals they don't understand. I had a 4 year old girl I babysat almost freak out when I took my Guinea Pig out of her cage. It's a good thing this little tale had a happy ending though. :)
