Hi!

This is my female P. sp. "Peru, Iquitos" feeding on a roach.

Sorry about the pic quality, it is taken through the plastic.

Because we need a license in the UK to keep certain animals that are categorised as dangerous. The Dangerous Wild Animals (DWA) license can be troublesome and/or costly to obtain.

Here's a PDF of DWA species.

Aah, ok. I can definitely see why most of the spiders on the list aren't supposed to be kept as pets! I can't imagine why some one would want to keep a Sydney funnel web spider or the most dangerous spider in the world the Brazilian Wandering spider! The Black widow ( Latrodectus mactans ) is considered the most dangerous spider in the USA.

I'm not sure if you have to have a permit in some places to keep them or not, as I've never kept one. And I don't plan to, at least not any time soon! And the PDF is very interesting. I think every one that's considering having one of those pets and doesn't know the rules should get a copy. Thanks alot for the info!

She looks stunning mate!

Normally im a bit of a rebel when it comes to rules, if I think theyre silly. But in the case of DWA spiders I whole heartedly agree with the law!

Id love to keep one of those, but can you imagine if I was to lose it? Disaster! in somewhere with a climate like scotland, the only way it could survive would be to stay in the warmest part of my house - the T shelves,nice and warm with plenty of loose crix, thing is its right beside my bed! :S

No thanks!

I dont suppose itd be so dangerous having a latrodectus loose in your room as its web would be easily spotted, and theyre fairly docile,little balls upon contact. but what are the temperment with these wandering spiders?

Hi,
Great pictures. I agree with the DWA as well, though I'd rather keep a Sydney funnel web or two given the time and the money. As long as your doctor knows you've got them they can keep a store of antivenom on hand. Anyway, although accidents happen no-one in their right mind would pick one up and start playing with it. head.gif

Like when you remove a T. Just a container over the spider and put on the lid. Although they often lie under stuff hiding during the day, so its not neccesary to remove the spider every time.
