lol me to George. When I was living in Queensland I couldn't have a rabbit, it is illegal to own/keep rabbits in QLD...stupid rule....so the first thing on my list when I moved to New South Wales was a....you guessed it....rabbit!!!! He is a English Dwarf hence the name Pommy
The spider is a she and doesn't have a name.....we didn't want to offend her by calling her something she didn't like ....would you with those fangs?? We got her as Shane is terrified of spiders. I hate to relocate any house spiders that I found in the house....gotta love tough men ..... So he thought what better way to overcome his fear then to get a spider! When she arrived I had to remove her from her travel capsule and pop her in the tank. Shane spent the next few hours making sure she was still in her tank and had not escaped Well it must of worked coz he can take off the lid and feed her with little fuss. She is fed small crickets. We don't handle her just incase she decides she is in a mood and takes a nibble They aren't venomous but her bite can cause a nasty reaction or make you very ill if allergic to the venom.
Oh, yeah, she is a Bird eating spider...sub species name Sterlingi.
One of my mum's friends had family from Queensland down for a couple months and they came round to my house to visit my rabbits! They had a little boy called Tom and I showed him my continental giant rabbit and his face was priceless! I think he thought it was a kangaroo! LOL!
Hehehehe, Shane sounds funny! Fancy getting a pet you're scared of! ;D
Awesome! A bird eating spider! ;D I've read about them but I've never known anybody with one! That is really neat, but getting one when you are scared of it doesn't really make sense to me. Ah, well, to each there own.
Can see your point with the name business, rather a delicate subject I can imagine!
I had a friend try to help me with my fear of snakes, never mind spiders..she GUARANTEEEEEEEEEED me the baby snake she slipped on my hand would stay still because it was sleeping the minute the slithery monster from hell touched my skin it slithered at warp speed up my arm! needless to say, after cussing her like a drunkin saylor,she decided the snake population & I could remain apart!! I almost had a heart attack!
Well, then it is only right that I share- I had a lovely little snake. He loved to cuddle. Yes, cuddle. He would ride around in my pockets where it was warm and then would curl up and sleep in my palm, with his little head resting on my wrist. I miss that little guy.
