    New Spider.



    A Chile Rose, large, fun to watch, aggressive eater and active. I also bought a spiderling for £4 to watch it grow.

    Next I think I will buy a King baboon spider, they are seriously bad tempered and can eat live mice.

    I have just been looking at some at lunch time, they look like fun.

    So that would be 5 kids, 3 cats, 3 dogs, 6 chickens, 3 spiders and plus the bearded dragons.

    I think I should move into a trailer park.

    Sorry to be a pain but don't you think exotic pets should stay in the wild where they belong?

    So should any pet? To be hoenst some animals can only survive in captivity.

    Maybe we should let some edugeek members back in the wild

    It was born in captivity, and besides, it does not want much out of life apart to be warm and fed. brain the size of pin head and all that.

    It does not have a name yet, but I am pretty sure its a girl (but is aggressive enough to be a boy). It could live for up to 14 years.

    the only thing i dont feel happy with in captivity are birds...dont like seeing them indoors in cages...

    I think if you are going to keep them, they should be in a nice big aviary...

    5 kids ICT-GUY! blimey!

    Bearded Dragons are brilliant. Had one at my last school who i nursed back to health. Wonderful creatures!

    I really want one, but its not like the snakes who we feed once a week and are all temperature controlled, they can be left on their own for a few days....i'm not too sure about beardies...

    I've also been considering rats...

    I like the bird eating spiders as they are big enough to cuddle (sort of!)
    I agree about birds though, even in an aviary I don't like it as they can't fly for long distances.
    I also don't like big animals in cages - I have seen enough unhappy elephants, lions and tigers to know that they are not really meant to be in captivity.I know there are good breeding schemes and that's great, but the whole thing makes me uncomfortable.
    As you say though, small animals, snakes and insects don't seem to suffer or know any different.
