Spiders as pets?
Some people keep seemingly threatening animals as pets including pythons. though not all snakes are threatening. I am thinking about spiders as pets. Personally, I have arachnophobia and would cringe at the very thought of keeping a spider as a pet. Granted, I am familiar with many species of spiders which are harmless but the thought that comes to mind when I think of spiders is that of poisonous ones who would not hesitate to sink their fangs into your skin.

RE: Spiders as pets?
Neighborhood kids where I'm from had always kept spiders as pets but these are the non-poisonous ones. Since we're from the province where trees are abundant, beetles and spiders are always included in the roster of pets that children like to keep. I remember playing with beetles as a little girl. We have lots of fruit trees in our yard and summer would be filled with a symphony of cicadas that would play all afternoon. My brothers and our friends would climb trees to look for long-legged spiders they can keep in matchboxes and then pitch them in fights. They terrified me so I stuck to my beetle.
