    Default HELP ASAP. ROSE HAIRED TARANTULA BREEDING QUESTION. PLEASE HELP

    Hi. So I have a female rose haired tarantula who is 10-11 years old. Is this too old to breed? I need to know ASAP cuz the reptile show is tomorrow and I really wanna buy a male to breed them but if she can't breed I don't really want a male. Please help...

    Thanks.

    Here's the ultimate care and information sheet about the Chilean Rose: http://people.ucalgary.ca/~schultz/roses.html
    I suggest you read it thoroughly before deciding whether to breed this species. One thing it mentions is that the lifespan of the Chilean Rose is unknown, but estimated at 20-25 years for a female. The vast majority in the pet trade are wild caught and imported as adults or sub-adults, so it's hard to guess their exact age.

    Another tip: join Arachnoboards. There are lots of nice people there who can answer your breeding and other tarantula questions. .)
