The Pumpkin Patch tarantula (Hapalopus sp Colombia) is a hardy, New World, dwarf tarantula. This species is interesting because it comes in two forms. The Groot (large form) and the Klein (small form). The small form grows to a max size of about 3in (8cm) while the large form can reach a size of about 4.5in (12cm). They are a little nervous and quick to retreat into hiding when disturbed but mine spends a lot of time out on display. They arent very defensive but can be very fast, so not an ideal tarantula to attempt to handle frequently. But with the stunning and unique color pattern and adorable size, they make a great tarantula to add to your collection. Check out my YouTube video linked on this post for more information and some cool footage of this amazing species.

scoville molted overnight! i had a feeling a molt was imminent because last night i found it hanging from the ceiling of its hide. it’s been two weeks since i got scoville and i’ve spent the entire time waiting for this to happen. now i just need to wait for its fangs to harden, and hopefully then it will finally eat!
The Arizona Blonde Tarantula is a gorgeous species endemic to the American Southwest as well as Northern Mexico. There are similar species found from Missouri to Mexico. This is a very slow growing species but makes for an amazing first tarantula. They are very docile, slow moving and spend a lot of time out on display once they’re larger than a few inches.

I don’t know what you want. I have stuffed you full of bugs. You cannot be looking for food. A mate? Do you want hot spide sex? No. And even if you did, I’m not sure why you think your Mr. Right is somehow on the ceiling of your box. Is it something more abstract? Are you telling me you want skydiving lessons? I can’t allow you to eat more. You’ll explode.
I assume spiders have two drives: Food and reproduction. Are you… are you looking for a man to eat? is that it? ARE YOU A MAN EATER?
With sincere worry,
