    Orb weaver

    I LOVE these things! But before I get one, can you answer some questions? 1. Speed? I have heard they are faster than tarantulas, is this true? 2. Temperament? I have heard they are not aggressive but quite skittish, is that true? 3.Venom? I have heard it is quite mild, is that true?
