Aragog, named after the infamous spider in the Harry Potter movies. She is a stunning female Chilean Rose tarantula. She is not as scary as she looks, Aragog is actually very calm and very easy to work with.
Aragog has met hundreds of people and children as she has visited schools for fetes and educational visits, she has been handled by children as young as 2. She is very calm when being handled, this makes her great for work as she tends to stand still and is easily positioned.
Aragog is great for photography as she can be placed in different scenes and will keep still, whilst the perfect shot is taken. This is one friendly tarantula, she can even be held upside down and get her tummy tickled!
Can be handled
Happy to work with animals within reason
Tarantulas are an excellent animal to feature in advertising and more as they are one of the biggest phobias people tend to have. They are perfect for anything horror themed, making things dramatic. There are several films about with tarantulas, for example; Aracnophobia, Eight Legged Freaks, Home Alone & Jungle 2 Jungle to name a few. Aside from movies, tarantulas are always the "weird pet" in comedy tv shows, and they are also used in music videos, one of which is Rihanna - Disturbia, the tarantulas are very memorable from this.
Aragog is an incredible creature and would be perfect for many different projects. Hire a tarantula with Urban Paws UK.
