So people think i am weird for having T's which does not bother me. The thing that bothers me is when they tell me to get a "real" pet that shows emotion. Anyone have pictures of T's showing their "feelings"? angry, happy, sad?

I know a bunch of people have pictures of their T's being angry in their defencive stance. Anyone have a picture of a T while its on its tippy toes preping for dinner. Any pictures you could post would be awesome, i will point them to this page. Thanks.

i doubt it has anything to do with them showing emotion

i've had more like, success, thinking of the spiders in terms of satisying or frustrating drives, rather than having emotions

i picture personalities arising from different like, tolerance levels for all the different drives

it might just be symantics, but it seems like anthropomorphizing to say a tarantula is happy or sad.
