Knowing nature, as soon as the eggs have hatched and the frog has served its purpose, the tarantula is going to eat it.

Apparently true: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiasmocleis_ventrimaculata One source that Wikipedia points to: http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2009/07/03/tiny-frogs-and-giant-spiders/

They actually play with the frog and pet it too like we do with dogs

Frog to Tarantula: "If a scorpion come by and says I promised him a ride; don't buy that s**t and sent that fool in his way."

Wait.... why doesn't the spider just eat the insects?

Ok.. which tarantula does that? Because most tarantulas are spinning their eggs in coccoons, attaching them somewhere or taking it with them.

That's sounds less like a pet and more like the staff. Which is a distinction even human companies fail to make at times.

Cases such as this one occur all over the animal kingdom and it has convinced me that animals have a completely different set of senses humans do not possess that facilitate language and behavior. How else could an animal make a conscious decision to align with a natural predator? I understand the mutual benefits each species get from the relationship but how would it begin in the first place without some form of communication between the creatures? Would love to get more information on this from someone knowledgeable on the subject.

We have doggos, they have froggos.

Wouldn't this be considered symbiosis? The two creatures working together for their mutual benefit.
14 Aug 2017 01:27 - +5
Symbiotic relationships aren't the same as owner/pet relations.

If this was posted on a wednesday you could've had it all

Unfortunately a few irresponsible pet frog owners have mistreated their frogs causing an increase in fatal tarantula hatching deaths and a growing mischaracterization of the Pit Bullgrog as a dangerous breed.

That's the bro-est thing I've ever read! Hey r/spiderbro! We need more tarantula bros.
14 Aug 2017 01:56 - +2
that's called "[symbiosis](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbiosis)", kids.

That is the sweetest case of Stockholm syndrome I've ever heard of

This is how humans got dogs.

More of a symbiotic relationship than an owner-pet one...
