The Pet Tarantula is a members-only land pet that was originally the October 2012 Monthly Member Gift. It was later re-released in the Diamond Shop starting during October 2013. It has since become a seasonal pet that can be purchased every year around the Night of the Phantoms. It was released again on October 1, 2020, as part of the Chilling Black Cat Bundle and was later sold separately.

Appearance

The Tarantula has the obvious eight legs with four on each side and a slight bend in each. Its torso is round, similar to that of a sphere, whereas the head is a small cylinder shape. The size and texture of the Tarantula's torso can be changed when buying your pet. This pet has four eyes instead of just two and can be changed to be in different places on the head.

Trivia

  • Like all other pets, once a tarantula is obtained, additional tarantulas can be purchased for only 400 Gems.
  • There was a glitch in June 2015 that allowed pet tarantulas to be purchased from the pet maker for just 400 Gems, even if the player had not previously obtained one. This glitch has since then been fixed.
