    Loofah is doing fantastic, just molted again and her small leg has finally fully regenerated!

    We are excited for October! Loofah was kind enough to allow me to take her out for a photoshoot

    She's a beauty. I kinda want a tarantula but they are illegal where I live and I also don't like to touch bugs to feed which sounds weird because a tarantula is a bug, for some reason I'm not scared of them.

    Nah I get that! It took me a long time to be able to touch the roaches in my colony for my beardie and this girl tbh.
    Loofah's legs are so fluffy!

    Tarantulas are illegal in some places? That's pretty crazy. I wonder what the logic is.

    I have a lot of roaches and they're no problem to me, but no way would I freehand my tarantula. That thing is crazy.

    Some places make tarantulas illegal because of the venom potency of some species. I'm lucky this girl isn't medically significant to humans were she to bite!

    Iím super intrigued by tarantulas but spiders are typically a giant NO for me. These just seem different though. My wife? Thatíd be a resounding HELL NO lol
