easy.. but freaky!! :shock: :lol:
i dont dare even think about starting to look into keep inverts. they seem kinda cool, but they also make me a bit nervous. i cant imagine finding out that a tarantula got lose in the house!
thanks for the neat pics.

I would worry MUCH less about a tarantula loose than a centipede, they are scary and FAST.

I don't worry about any of my pets getting out, as i keep them all in secure containers.

that sounds great... in theory. i secure all my cages too, but i recently lost my opal corn due to a lack of concentration for 30 seconds. i had him out for a few mins while i was filling his water dish and then i put him back in i didnt secure the top. i didnt see him for a few days, but i assumed he was in his hide... it wasnt until 3 days later when i went to feed him that i realized my mistake. :(

i agree with on the centipedes. i know they have a nasty sting and are slightly venomous, right? what do you do when you want to clean the tank? do you have any millipedes? they seem less intimidating. lol

all my lids either snap on, or have a cliplike device as part of the container itself (i use the lrubbermaid sterilite show-off containers for my bigger inverts).

when i clean the tank of my centipedes I give them food, its as simple as that, ,when munching on crickets or mealworms they are content (usually) to allow me to do whatever i want, so long as I don't touch them. They are more venomous than tarantulas, but not deadly by any means (assuming you are a healthy adult)

I don't keep millipedes, i prefer my animals to eat insects, not veggies/fruits.

Nice P. irminia!!! sun tigers are my favorite spiecies! actually the only ones I keep any more.
I think i read this somwhere but i m not sure. i think they removed C. fasciatum from all tarantula families and put it in another group. so in other words its not a tarantula any more.
i could be wrong but im prety sure i read it in a book or a magazine.

If you are looking for some more, my friend had a sac hatch a little while ago, and has a bunch.
