My husband and son have been begging for a tarantula for years now. We have snakes, lizards, tree frogs, etc. So exotics aren't anything new to us. But I'm terrified of spiders. So I've been doing research and I think I'm finally ready to give in. We live in southern middle Tennessee so my closest large cities are Huntsville, Nashville, and Chattanooga. Atlanta is a far drive but if they had what he wants I might venture out. Where to go? Or can they be ordered in the mail? And what kind of enclosure is best? He wants a Cobalt Blue one, but after doing research I think they may be out of my price range ($100). What are some other colorful ones that get large-ish? He is color blind so pink toes are out as they just look brown to him. Also will it be okay to display this with our frogs in the living room? Or do they need more privacy? (After the adjustment period) and how long do they typically live? Thank you!
