In a back corner of Exotic Pets, the tanks are filled with the stuff of nightmares: hairy spiders the size of an adult’s palm, with names like Mexican Fireleg and Goliath Birdeater.

Exotic!” Ken Foose is comfortable among these creatures. He’s middle-aged and slightly disheveled with a thick, raspy voice, and he seems simultaneously harried and in total control of the shop, which he’s owned for 25 years, the past six at its current location on North Decatur.
