My school has a pet tarantula named Fuzzbut.:meow: Which was very strange because he lacked fuzz on his butt.

When I was little I found a spider and kept it in a small plastic box......I can't remember if it died of lack of oxygen or if it escaped?

The only one I ever had was a tarantula who's fangs had been broken so, yeah he was a bit creepy, but he couldn't hurt you if he tried. I never touched it anyway, it was someone else's and we were spider sitting.

My grandma had a tarantula named Dirty Harry, and I had a free range(?) spider that I let live under my window sill for quite a while.

My dad had one, it got out of it's cage, scared the bloody life out of me.

I didn't know it was his pet so I killed it.

He cried a bit and wouldn't speak to me for a while...

I used to keep Black Widows as pets, but my dad doesn't like spiders so he would make me release them in the woods. I also had a large spider that lived on my window (I fed her wasps) does she count? :D

BLACK WIDOWS. I love them so much.

Isn't it a bit dangerous though, to have them as pets? Aren't they supposed to be poisonous? D:

I love them too. :heart:

Yes they are poisonous (if I'm not mistaken all spiders are) though black widows are one of the most deadly and dangerous. So even though they are cute and make reasonable pets I don't suggest trying to do it. I'm mad though so I do stuff like that! :D

LOL I thought my dad was about to that to me and my spider. So I brought up the fact he was playing with a copperhead about a month before. (blackmail = :heart: )
My Dad: "... go let the spider AND it's babies free." :no:
Me: :devilish:
My Dad: "Oh and no more pet spiders." *leaves*
Me: TT-TT
My childhood was very insane, as you can tell. ;)

ehhh me and my friend pretended to take this spider as a pet once cause it ate some slug that freaked us out... so I guess I have, yeah. But I didn't like the spider, and I didn't touch it, if I did I'd probably pass out because I can't be in teh same room as a spider without wanting to run away.

I have one right now - more or less. I found this strange looking spider in my bedroom yesterday evening, and I placed a glass on it so it can't run over me while I sleep. Now I'm looking for a place where I can let it go without it freezing to death or coming back into my flat.

No, but I do have a rat that lives in my kitchen wall that we call Charleston. My grandma once caught him trying to steel an entire loaf of bread by pulling it through a hole in our wall XD

when I was little there was a spider web in my room, and the spider who lived there, and I didn't let anyone take it down of kill the spider because I thought it was my friend. and then after a while my parents called me down and showed me this news thing about how this spider had laid eggs in this boys ear, and I got so freaked out that I had them take down the web, kill the spider, and now I'm afraid of them to this day...

Just spiders I have hanging out on the ceiling, mostly dandy long legs in my bathroom or corner of my living room. Though a pet spider would be cool with the tank and everything but not yet.

I can't help but wait for the day where we have a Disney princess with a pet spider. Because I think they are running out of pet ideas.

Yes. He lived in the corner of my bathroom. His name was Wilson.

He lived there until he was cleaned away one day. : (

there was a time in my elementary school days where spider battles were popular and all the cool kids had a spider and a tiny spider case [with leaves in them and separate compartments] for the many different spiders that they'd buy. the critters weren't the furry, creepy find. they had large butts and were ticklish when they crawled on your hand. they were pretty easy to take care of, as well. :>

i think this is an inhumane practice now, though. :<

I don't, but a family friend did and she would sometimes bring it over and show us. She would feed it crickets or something and I remember watching it kill them and eat them. It really left an impression on me as a little kid. o.o

No, but my friend's little brother has a pet tarantula. He likes showing me this thing. I like wondering what would happen if I punch him for doing this. But he's a good kid so I withhold the urge to plaster my hand into his face...no matter how fun it would be:mwahaha:

I'm afraid of Spiders. Having one would probably give me nightmares. Or the obvious day when I wake up and the little bastard isn't in the cage O_O.
