What these guys are trying to say is listen to IT_bit_me, grow some balls and save up some money incase you throw like Allan Donald. :smt006
If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won't walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”

I wouldve suggested holding them when they were a bit smaller so could progress and grow while being held throughout.But ja good luck :D

Read my favourite book again recently, its called Terrarium and I had a look at the tarantulas section and it said that depending on venom dosage, your allergies and your body size, etc there is a 1% to 5% chance that will have a serious reaction and need urgent medical attention. I think the most important factor there is your allergies.
