 We here at Clark have just purchased and adult female Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula, She is 5 1/2 inches in diameter and will probably reach 6 1/2 inches over the next few years. Her name is Charlotte (Charli), Charlie is very sweet and new addition to the Clark family.

Charlie has been with us now for a full week now and has been great. She gets lots of visitors and enjoys her time chasing crickets. I would have to say that Tarantula's make great pets! We wil post updates regularly.
