cuz I spent quite a little while on that but kind of a hard hard few hours on that and you guys also said that I should make them like caricatures and make them more cartoony looking so I'm looking into that as well so we've any kind of information and suggestions you guys have that you want me to know about for the shirts down below so if you don't know already this video is going to see about do tarantulas make good pets and you know do they are they fishes are they sweet what can I expect when I get a tranche Allah so this is my tarantula is my Mexican Reggie now I am usually never really I'm not nervous as far as holding her when it comes to is she going to bite me I'm not really worried too much about that especially when you hold a tarantula like this like if you're just holding it like this and nothing's going on usually a tarantula I've never betrayed you honestly biting you just from holding it like this but um what I'm more worried about usually is dropping her if I drop her and yes sometimes you gotta watch out I'm more worried about dropping her because dropping her could be literally a death sentence though I don't handle her too much always be sure that also when you're holding these guys do not breathe on them whatsoever because breathing will scare them quite quite often but yeah as you can see transfers aren't really – most ranchers aren't really known to be aggressive you just gotta it's a matter of picking the right one so there's my girl Talon all right now the best trance was that you can get on the market today our number one in my opinion Mexican red knee which is what I'm holding here as you can see she's still growing and she's going to take some time and then the second one I would recommend is a Chilean rose here Chilean ro tears are very sweet I had one my own myself unfortunately key with a male he didn't live very long and I think possibly the reason why he might have died is because I did not check on him when he was molting and I think possibly he basically got stuck in his moles and died I think that's a possibility or maybe you just with the short leg to do with a male I believe what I have here is a female um I'm still not 100% sure it's very hard to know if you have a female or a male tarantula usually you have to look for something called the tibial hooks it was not usually what they used for breeding and you know they're very sweet though it's very uncommon to be bitten by a tarantula now I'm not saying it won't happen and I've never been bitten by tarantula so I cannot tell you is it is really hurtful or not but I heard it stings like a bee sting which would suck all right now I am going to put her back in her cage because tarantulas typically don't really enjoy being handled they are wonderful with handling but they don't exactly enjoy it and it can't stress them out of it and transfers are almost as simple as leopard geckos the only reason why I don't recommend them right off the bat is because tarantulas if they do bite the bite can be extremely painful and sometimes now that's extremely rare but it can even be fatal now the reason why I say that is because if you're allergic to a bee sting then you will be allergic to a tarantula if not you will be 100 percent fine and all they will do is they will just draw blood and most of time they won't even inject their venom into you and basically the only thing that could hurt you possibly if you are allergic to bee sting is their venom if they don't release their venom though and it's just a normal bite it should be fine because the thing is is tarantulas only want to release their venom on things like their prey because what their venom does do is it moisturizes a lot of things so that means that when they kill a cricket and they eat it they release their friend and they inject their venom into the cricket to make sure that it gets moistened up and that it you know it it bakes would come food with the venom so touch your initials don't really want to waste their venom on somebody you like us humans usually injecting the venom is made just just to kill the press so I think you won't be okay say I have the 1mc yeah why yeah yeah anyways strand Chile's are a really great pet also because the maintenance is super low I don't have to clean my tarantula very often and I don't need a heat source for my tarantula I don't need a light source for my tarantula you really should never have a light for your strangelove only big Alaia hole like here is so that you can see the enclosure but as soon as I am dealt this video I am going to turn that light right back off and yeah they don't you keep or if they don't need light and they actually prefer to be in an area that's a little bit darker sometimes this area if I push it back a little bit it will get pretty dark so heating lighting and all that crazy stuff is definitely not needed for a tarantula provided that you don't live in a super cold climate next we have feeding feeding is also very simple believe it or not tarantulas only need to eat at least this once a week I feed mine once a week a large cricket even when they're pretty small you can use even large crickets I realize when I try to feed small crickets to my babies my baby trenchless you went through the baby basically small creatures didn't work out because she could barely catch them but a nice big one will do the trick I wouldn't say super large but you want to go for something like a medium cricket next what makes them a great great pet for kids and for people in general is the handling the handling is actually really awesome tarantulas don't like to move around much I don't know if you notice but their stairs and invert that just doesn't want to move around a lot and even when you hold them they don't do much moving as you saw she was not really moving that much on my hands so um you know she she's just she's a very sweet girl she has her day if you got to also remember though tarantulas what makes some of the advance is when you're handling you have to make sure that your tarantula is not going to go into mold slides the moulting is eating kicking the hairs if you don't know what kicking the hairs is it is basically when a tarantula will flick the hairs on its plot area it will flick them off and they do that due to stress and things like that and often when molting they will do that too I noticed that every time I trench Allah is going to multi my side I've ever had a tarantula when they're about to molt they'll kick the hairs off a lot on their butt area and they will also kind of have a black area they're like instead of it looking like a skin color expect what it will look like when they switch the hairs off when they're about to go into most it will be a blackish color and handling.when molting time is about to come up is extremely important you don't want to hold them when they're about to molt because they are truly stressed out and they may just they may just kind of take it but some tarantulas not so much some tarantulas will definitely let you know that they do not want to be touched and if you're lucky they'll just run away but some transfers will act out in biting you often this is not the case but I have heard some stories I know that when I had a transfer in the past month one of my other ones my Chilean rose here when I wanted to touch him before molting time was coming it was a pain it was a paint even getting him out of this cage he really did want to bite me and also a big thing is when multi-time is coming up you do have to make sure that the moisture in the cage is too icky at least when multi-time it comes you need to make sure a certain moisture in the cage because because of my mistakes I have made these mistakes a lot of my tarantula is my transyl in the past might have Dyson I'm not positive but basically if they don't have moisture in their cage their molt will come out very very dry and that could loot that could lead to losing a leg being stuck in the holes and dying or it could just mean that their molt is going to come super dry and at most it also taken while to get the most often I know I had a problem with this little guy here with that luckily I was able to save him and I just moistened the part of the malt that was kind of dry and we were okay after that but you may not be so lucky so always make sure when all the time is about to come you have moisture in there if you don't know for sure if they're fat Smoltz just always make sure if there's moisture in the cage and you'll be fine now you don't want too much moisture but at least make sure that the substrate is damp and just not straight up dirt dry or what you can also do is make sure that the cage is misted down once every day and then once moulting time has come you most likely won't have any molds to come for the next like three or four months so they grow super slow keep that in mind I just Oh God instead the cat it's a cat part coming off the whole thing comes off and you I mean the whole thing first world problems anyways um tarantulas in short terms make great pets for kids just make sure that when hosting time come you are super prepared make sure that you have a nice to Angela and that you can handle it and also make sure that you do have a kid taking care of the traditional if they are very gentle with it believe it or not one big drop to a tarantula can kill it you have to be very careful when holding a tarantula I wouldn't recommend to a close for very young kids unless you don't plan on letting such the kid hold the tarantula often then it's fine but when it comes to kids that are not as mature some kids are different some do they're more mature some kids aren't I don't know you have to know your kids but they are great pets for kids provided that you teach them to be gentle with every set that they touch and you know provided that you give them supervision I do not advise that I could hold the tarantula alone anything could happen you could drop it you could accidentally lose it and of course it could bite him you want to be there when you holding a tarantula or shoot wholly entrench 'la or even a leopard gecko or anything but especially to especially a tarantula because they can they're very sensitive they're almost like glass animals so typically I don't use my transfer too much for holding it's more of just a look at pet for me and I don't mind that at all but if you're looking for going to handle all the time tarantulas aren't exactly for you like I said they are handleable but they're still not the type of pest that you want to handle all provided I've never been bitten by a tranche look most of them don't act out aggression when they're scared most them run away and in my opinion and I think most people who have kept her Angeles they make great pets and we got you gotta accept something a little bit you going to try it out before you say no if you are looking to get a transfer after this video or maybe even before and you just weren't completely sure if you wanted to do it and you need an extra push transients are super cheap pet so if you're looking for also expensive trance Allah if the a tarantula is the easiest simplest cheapest pet I have ever owned in my entire life yet I cannot remember the last time I really had to spend any money on my tarantula all you need is an EXO Tara you can use an excess hair like me something like this well maybe even a little bit cinder if you like but not too big they don't need huge enclosures they are they are going to be getting bigger but they're not huge animals you know you can also just get a custom tub you can go to Home Depot right now and get a medium sized tub this about this long and this tall basically if you can find a child around this size or so you can do that too just make sure you put plenty and plenty and plenty and plenty of air holes at the top and on the sides but um yeah they can live in that too and they just need to coco peat the dirt substrate a little tree as you can see in there there's a little tree that they climb on and there must be a high 100% must be a high in their enclosure they do like to hide especially when molting time is about to come and just in case you don't know what hoping is you may not be completely sure it's basically where they shed their exoskeleton off and what that means their skeleton is on the outside instead of the inside so you got to imagine that a lot of stress going on with them when that time has come if you're just a reptile person you'll know that it basically likes shedding shedding the outer skin if you see a tarantula if you see your tarantula flipped upside down do not throw it away do not bury it is about to molt that is how they multi with upside down and they hold it should not take more than a day okay it's been more than today I worry so it should take a few hours some are shorter than others but you also want to keep an eye on them when moving time comes keep a good eye on them yeah that's just basically it tranches are super cheap any pet they can be on a desk if you want them to be they can be in your room anywhere it's more than degree they don't take up much space there not a lot of expenses they just eat the insects worms or crickets most of the time line just like to eat crickets but you could try warmer too and I would just go to the Mexican red knee or the Chilean rose here those are the two I'm familiar with there are some they're a little bit better but those are the toffee they talk to beginners that I would pick you should be able to find either one of these online or at a pet store if you guys think I left anything else feel free to leave it down in the comments below and if you have any more questions on tarantula also leave the comments down below I'd love to just interact with you guys and know what kind of stuff

other merchandise you want to see on my shops are you going to want to speak back are you going to want to see you like stickers let me know down in the comments what you think I should do is my merch brand is coming out soon and it's definitely emphasize on the sizes that you want what kind of sizes are you guys and what kind of designs are you looking for are you looking for an all pets design or

  1. What do you reccomend for a first time tarantula? But I'm scared of spiders……….. but there is the problem………..
    I WANT A TARANTULA NOW
    Because watching videos on them (thank you exotic layers) I have gotten over my fear of tarantulas they are pretty and I've wanted one for a wile but my dad is afraid of spiders as I'm over here getting over my fear of them

  2. I am a sad person lately. A few weeks ago I had to get rid of all my rats because all the sudden I turned allergic to them. I found good homes for them but I hate not having them. I love my ball python but I miss Jay and Bob.
    Maybe I will consider a turantula.

  3. amazing video! is there anything i can do to prevent a tarantula from dying while molting? it would be so scary if they were to get stuck 🙁
    also, can you pet your tarantula?

  4. I got two tarantulas. I got both of the sorts which you called "sweet". My are ultra aggressive. They are trying to bite me and pulling off their burning hair every time I open their enclosure. These aren't my first tarantulas. I never had a quiet or "sweet" tarantula. Why are they so aggresiv, am I just unlucky and picking the wrong individuals? ?

  5. Tarantulas are great pets. You just gotta respect them and know their boundaries and yours as well. They all have different personalities so there is one out there for everyone

  6. I had a male rose hair it only lived for 4 yrs I think that's average lifespan. He bit me once (my fault) and after freaking out I came to find they only have about as much venom as a bee sting the sight of the holes was the worse part

  7. Wait so i gotta spray my T or his cage with a spray bottle every time i think he is gonna molt? also my T before he molted he blocked up his hide and like a LONG time later we removed the web because we was worried and he was looking ok is that something bad?

  8. I know a few who have the Chilean rose and they were skittish as crazy and threat postures galore . Not every one is the case, but they can be just like the Cyriopagopus lividus or the Thailand Cobalt Blue, Phantom, my Sub Adult female Grammostola Pulchra – The Brazilian Black is so docile, who happens to be yet again, in premolt stage.

  9. have you had your Redknee  kick hairs and if so. how bad is it when it gets on you. kicking hairs is my biggest concern, not to worried about it biting me.

  10. Very nice video. I used to be scared of spiders… but now I think they are so awesome. So I have a couple of questions… I heard that they actually don't have mouths… but the "Bite" they do is actually their fangs injecting into their prey. Then they inject their venom to liquify the food and then drink it back up thru the fangs. Is that true? Do you know of a place (store) where you can go and actually handle one to see what it is like before you get one. It is one of my goals to handle one to overcome my final fear of them… but really… I think they are so beautiful and fragile… so I never would want to hurt or kill one. Did you say this was a Mexican Red Knee Tarantula? Just making sure I heard you clearly…. because she is so pretty! Thank You for the awesome video.

  11. Uhhhhh i thought tarantula bites wasnt deadly…you said in the video it can be deadly..there was no records of deaths from the bite before

  12. Snakeaphobia XD only continued watching after that moment for the luls… Well that and cleavage. Ophidiophobia for just snakes or herpetophobia for reptiles as a whole

  13. I am in college to become a vet, and am already an equine dental technician, so I always love to see people who also appreciate animals. and I LOVE tarantulas and snakes. I also love your eyebrows. very Cara Delevigne-ish.

  14. Look… I am arachnophobic .. but for some weird reason I am purely fascinated by T's.. I have a feeling that if I get one (mind you a docile one) that I could probably take pretty good care of it. Think it's a good idea?
