Pet of the Week: Terry (not a llama)

Meet Terry — not a llama!

If you’ve read Terry’s profile (ID 34130788) on our website, you may be scratching your head. Why on earth are we calling him a barnyard animal and llama?!? Well, the database that we use to showcase adoptable animals unfortunately doesn’t offer a “spider” option. But don’t worry, Terry CAN fit into your home as he is, in fact, an adult Chilean rose tarantula.

Terry is stunningly gorgeous! He is quite calm and can be handled easily. He’s the perfect match for a tarantula-lover who is committed to providing him with a great home. He will need a five- to 10-gallon tank with a heat source, a place to hide and a shallow water dish.

If you’re interested in meeting Terry, come by the Seattle Animal Shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., Seattle. We are open from noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday, for adoptions and licensing. Check out our website to learn more about the adoption process.
