Meet “Queen Tarantula”, An Indonesian Woman Who Lives With 1,500 Pet Spiders

If the thought of sharing your home with a few spiders gives you the creeps, imagine what it’s like to step into the house of Ming Cu, who lives with 1,500 tarantulas, which she breeds and loves very much.

Ming Cu didn’t always live in a spider-filled home in Bandung City, Indonesia. What started out as a business opportunity with a friend in 2010 turned into a very different way of life.

Cu says she has spent more than $55,000 on her spiders so far, and now has 1,500 tarantulas living with her.

Despite her love for her furry friends, Ming Cu admits that it can be difficult to look after so many pets, especially as she is responsible for making them breed.
