Rosey

 

Rosey

Rosey is a gorgeous Rose-haired Tarantula.  These tarantulas are commonly found in captivity because they are easy pets with a non-aggressive personality.  The brown spider is covered with reddish-orange to pink hairs over its body, hence its name.  Rosey is rather young in age.  We were very excited when she had her first successful molt during the 2011-12 school year.  This summer, June 2016, she molted again and is a lovely pink.  We hope that color will last a while. Come visit and you can see her exoskeleton!
