elvira the rose hair

In other news today, we bred Tarantulas for the first time.

On Black Friday, our local reptile shop was having a sale so we decided to pick up this nice Rose Hair (closet to me) that they have had for awhile. When we got him home, I noticed that he was in his Ultimate molt. That means he was ready to breed and will only live for maybe another year.

After talking to our Tarantula guy (I got the Red Knee from him last night) he said we should breed him to Elvira (our female Rose Hair). We talked to him for quite awhile about it and decided to go ahead and try it. They bred with no problems. Elvira didn’t even try to eat him!

So in a few months, be ready for a lot of Tarantulas!
