WELCOME TO MERBET'S RIP GALLERY!
Regretfully, I have to announce that Merbet passed away in March 2006. He lived for approximately 6 years until sexual maturity, a
normal lifespan for a male Mexican Red Knee Tarantula. Please enjoy this
beautiful gallery created in his honor. There are numerous pictures of
his fangs–possibly some of the best tarantula fang pictures I’ve ever
seen–in addition to pictures of his enormous legspan, male emboli, and
abdomen. While some of these pictures may be disturbing, please
appreciate the incredible size (and beauty!) of the tarantula. All of
the pictures on this page are property of Roamingcattle.com. If you
would like to use any of my pictures from this site, my molting site, or
my pictures site, please contact me.
