i think it is a learned behavior also. my mom is afraid of snakes and spiders so i have always been afraid too. when i decide i wanted a pet lizard of corse she said no but with some convincing i got a mali uromastyx and when they took him out of the tank my mom would not even hold him but in weeks she would take him out on her on! i then got 4 snakes and still goin strong. my mom does not touch them but by her leting them in her house is a huge step. i admite i am still afraid of spiders (and all bugs for the matter).but a taratula is looking more and more interesting as the days go by!. so in conclusion i think it isa learned behavior but not impposible to out learn. sorry about the spelling but i mean come on its early in the morning.
