Category Archives: Rosalita the Tarantula
My tarantula died the other day. She was a Chilean Rose-hair tarantula. I had always said that she was the most well-behaved animal in my home and to be honest I was only half joking. She was by far one of the gentlest animals I have ever seen. I would pick her up and she would walk as I did the hand in front of hand trick. Sometimes I would go too fast and she would slip. I know it scared her and I wouldn’t have blamed her if she bit the shit out of me. She never did, though. She always took things in stride. I named her Rosalita after the song by Bruce Springsteen. She was a gentle soul who helped keep me calm. She was a good spider and was as much a part of our family as our dogs and cats. I’m going to miss her.
