Lily the Brazilian White Knee Tarantula, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lily
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Unknown
Kind: Brazilian White Knee Tarantula
Home: Texas, USA
   This is Lily. She's a baby Brazilian White Knee tarantula. I got her as a sling (which is what baby spiders are called) and I was so afraid I would kill her because she was so tiny and fragile, just a little greenish white blob. Now she's getting quite lovely, but nowhere near her adult size/color. She hates to have her picture taken, though, and never cooperates. I have no clue if she's a female. Hopefully the girlie name and hopeful thinking will sway things in my favor.

     She's really skittish right now and this is one of the not as docile breeds, anyway. I have seen people holding them, but she's going to be more like a pet fish, a pet just to look at. I have had several I could hold, though, years ago. She's almost a year old, and it takes three to four years to reach full adult size in these guys. When she is full grown, she can have a leg span of about 9" if she's a girl. I have always been fascinated by how beautiful insects and arachnids are. And Lily is precious to me!
