Tarantulas are not considered true spiders, instead they belong to a different group called mygalomorphs... Dec 25, 2015

    36. Married for 13 years. Small tarantula collection of two spiders who are spoiled and just the sweetest tarantulas I have ever been around. Then again I think that about all our family pet spiders.

    I can admit ignorance, take advice and follow a reminder of caution.

    I read all advice given, unless of course I missed your post somehow.

    Thanks.

    Here is a bit of fun factual. excerpt from a magazine publication in 2010. Out of Texas Parks and Wildlife

    "Tarantulas are ancient arachnids, as old as dinosaurs. According to West, fossil records show that tarantulas have been crawling around, virtually unchanged, for more than 20 million years. The oldest known ancestral tarantula-like fossils date back 235 million to 240 million years."

    "“Tarantulas have figured in indigenous creation stories and fanciful myths throughout the world,” says West. The Nahua peoples of central Mexico, for example, called tarantulas Tlalueuetl. “Tlal” comes from the word tlalle, which means “owner of a big piece of land,” and “ueuetl” means old. Think of tarantulas as “the old owners of a big piece of land.” "

    It was in an article written by a Dale Weisman
