Hello all, I am new here but very excited to be part of this community! I have been toying with the idea of getting myself a tarantula for a few years now, but have never felt as ready as I am now. My only problem is that I feel as though I'm going to be nervous to handle/put my hand in the enclosure. This is a worry for me as I really love and respect tarantulas and would love to see such a beautiful creature join in with my animal menagerie! So I guess I'm in need of some tips to get over worry of tarantulas, remember I'm a complete newbie so I don't know too much in general about these little guys (though I'll be doing much more research once I find a species I seem to like) so does anyone have experience and can put my irrational fears to rest?
