Initially I don’t understand why this one year old, male tarantula was named Rose.
But my student (below) tried to explain in English why it’s named Rose.
“My mother gave to me… a gift!”
Ok, no further questions. 😀
But I’m guessing that this is the Chilean Rose Tarantula. I’m not sure though as this is the first tarantula I dared to see or examine closely and photograph. I am not a tarantula enthusiast or so inclined to crawlies, spiders, caterpillars, bugs and the likes 😀 I just had the nerve to take a photo because it looked calm and harmful as long as I’m few inches away. Besides my student assured me that it moves quite slow so it’s ok to take a photo 😀
The proud tarantula lover, Peragarn, who pets Rose during class discussion (below). This made me annoyed at first so he hid it under his desk immediately knowing that I confiscate things when they don’t pay attention. But yeah, I only confiscate ‘things’ not tarantulas! 😀
So when our time was up, he showed me his pet and he fed this arachnid with worms.
And speaking of worms, I hate worms! I’d rather stare at tarantulas than take a glance at worms!
So he never let me see those tiny crawlies, just this tarantula for a pose!
