"About a year ago I purchased a Rose Hair (Rosa is her name) for my 7 year old son. Spiders are not necessarily my *favorite* of God's creatures, but Rosa is absolutely wonderful and I love her. I do most of her care (because face it, my son is SEVEN) which is very minimal. She has never ever been aggressive, even when my 5 year old accidentally grabbed her from the top (like picking up a rock, ACK!) and has always loved to be held and interacted with. I limit, for Rosa's sanity, the amount of time the kids are allowed to hold her, so they're not in and out of her tank a bunch of times a day irritating her. She's never been moody ... she's just a GREAT girl! :) I have some questions about Rosa that I have not been able to find answers for. Rosa has a bald spot on her back. I saw that it said something about "high strung" spiders having this bald spot, but how do I know if Rosa is high strung? Also, Rosa has never, in the year I've had her, molted. I can't decide if she's grown at all. I am assuming she's eating, there's dead crickets all over her tank when I clean it. She's eaten a pinky mouse once right after I got her, but never since. Is there something I'm not doing right for her? Any guidance to make sure our little friend is comfortable and happy would be GREATLY appreciated. "
