***EDIT (11/22/15)***
I just want to make some things clear before you comment on this video. First of all, I do not and have not ever disliked the Rosies. I have five of them myself, and, trust me, I know how to take care of them. Second, everyone keeps their tarantulas differently, so no, my ways are not 'wrong' or 'stupid'. Third, before you leave a rude comment, think about what you are actually saying and if it is constructive criticism or not. If it is not, your best bet would be to just not comment at all.

With that being said, I have had some extremely rude and inappropriate comments on this video, which I have promptly removed due to the user's ignorance and general troll-like nature. If you do not have experience in tarantula-keeping, do not tell me how I should be taking care of my own. Any and all rude/ignorant comments will be removed...Thank you.

Rose Hair tarantulas are known for their docile temperament and are thought to be one of the easiest species to handle. Because of this and their ease of care, they are recommended as a budding hobbyists first tarantula.
My experiment in this video demonstrates why the Rose Hair should NOT be your first tarantula.
Several of my personal recommendations for first-timers:
Brachypelma smithi (Mexican Red Knee)
Brachypelma albopilosum (Honduran Curly Hair)
Aphonopelma chalcodes (Arizona Blonde)
Grammostola pulchripes (Chaco Golden Knee)
Grammostola pulchra (Brazilian Black)
