Pet Tarantulas

Pet Tarantulas

In this photo taken Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, A Chromatopelma Cyanopubescens tarantula, a green bottle blue colored male originally from Venezuela, is one of Dee Reynolds' collection of 50 tarantulas she cares for at her home in Los Angeles. Tarantulas are the heaviest, hairiest, scariest spiders on the planet. They have fangs, claws and barbs. They can regrow body parts and be as big as dinner plates, and the females eat the males after mating. But there are many people who call these creepy critters a pet or a passion and insist their beauty is worth the risk of a bite. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
