    Haha no you didn't,I was scared of an incorrect reply. Also,I agree fully with you on that. I have even posted videos here of how people treat their tarantulas on YouTube,no shame at all even showing fights.

    I apologise if I came across as being angry,I was just unhappy at the thought someone suggested that. Since I will never ever allow that,I respect every specimen I have and some way more than others.

    im glad someone other then myself sees how some people (nobody on here so far) treat their animals. Ts are beautiful creatures and whenever i see somebody excessively bugging their t i just tell em how would u like it if i sat here and proded at you all day lol

    Tarantula's interpretation of being 'threatened' may mean the owner who's doing cage maintenance. None of them are thrilled about intruders, as in the wild that can lead to a quick death.

    That applies to handling too. Nothing in the wild picks them up unless it's going to eat them.
