I admire them the same way I do any predator. They have a purpose, it is evident that they have been designed to do what they do. They do it beautifully. BUt, truth be told, I’m not real fond of their whole "Chew the males head off after mating" thing.

Yeah..I love watching them hunt. Its really something. Though I sometimes with Bart wouldnt start eating the poor crickets by their like...legs or mid-section. Like 5 minutes into eating, they are sometimes still squerming. Lol. If the male gets lucky, hell escape. But! Males are like mal tarantulas...Their life expectancy is about 12 months. Not long at all.....

Yeah..I needed to mist his tank..Already done..:)

Nice I want one... lets just say their mating practices are a little more intense then just eating the males head. I caught one that had three breeding it at the same time! I was like WOW! Anyways, if I find one I’m defiantly keeping it. Watching their egg sacks hatch is AWESOME too.

Sadly Bart passed away 2 days ago. Not sure what happened. I found him struggling to stand and move and just died a few hours later....:/

They are really awsome critters though, Id get another in a heart beat! Lol...

Yeah, I know they dont live very long. 6-12 months. I mean, Im guessing he was already pretty old when I got him(eventhough his tiny tiny size)....They do start out asVERY small nymphs, so Im guessing he was 2-4 months old before I even got him, and I had him for another 2 months....He was cool though, Id get another in a heart beat. Id like a Orhid Mantis..Very purrty...Lol...:D
