The Pet Tarantula is a members-only land pet that was originally the October 2012 Monthly Member Gift. It returned to Jamaa during October 2013 when it was sold in the Diamond Shop. It has since become a seasonal pet that can be purchased in the Diamond Shop every year around the Night of the Phantoms.
When a tarantula is clicked, it spins a web and begins to flip and hop on the web as if it were a trampoline. When the owner walks in to a source of water, the tarantula hangs from a web in the sky to avoid the water.
Dance: The tarantula stands on it's four legs, the other four going up and down. Similar to the slang: "raising the roof".
Sleep: The same as it's stand, but hunched down and eyes closed.
Hop: Hops up with it's legs spreading, and repeats.
Play: Throws up a plush fly, catches it, and repeats.
