    Is my Exo-Terra enclosure good for my T?

    These look super nice! I agree with you, my T. Albo is 6" and I will wait to move my Grammostola Pulchra until she is a bit bigger.

    Is my Exo-Terra enclosure good for my T?

    I wish I could take a better picture but the vents are not covered, I made sure of that, it's just hard to tell from the picture, and the cave is 7" deep. Again, hard to tell. I will add some more soil to the sides and the mushroom ledges should help too once I get them :))))

    Is my Exo-Terra enclosure good for my T?

    Hear me out. I know the use of Exo-Terra enclosures for terrestrials is pretty controversial in this community BUT I have made quite a few modifications to my 12x12x12 cube for my curly hair and would like to get your opinion on it. First of all, the pesky mesh lid had to go. It's been...

    Arboreal tarantulas' owners: I need your help!

    Fair enough. I got used to my two terrestrials who just sit there while I move stuff around in their enclosures lol All these pictures of beautiful arboreals are really making me want to get one.

    Arboreal tarantulas' owners: I need your help!

    Yup, good point. There are just so many people on forums complaining of how fast these ts are and how prone they are to just jumping out of their tanks that I became paranoid.

    That's good to know, I was really worried about that. Thank you so much for all the information!!!

    Arboreal tarantulas' owners: I need your help!

    I read most arboreals tend to try and run out of their enclosure when it's open for maintenance. Would you say that's true? (Your c. versicolor is GORGEOUS)

    Arboreal tarantulas' owners: I need your help!

    I absolutely love pinktoe tarantulas, I've heard they web up a ton too, which is great. The only thing holding me back is their lifespan. I know 15 years is A LOT for most people, but...ya know...I guess I'm crazy lol

    Arboreal tarantulas' owners: I need your help!

    Hey, folks! My husband and I love our two girls so much that we are ready to get another one ("I don't want a tarantula," he said, "we might as well get a pet rock," he said). So far we've got a T. Albo and a Grammostola Pulchra—I think it's time for us to start venturing into the world of...

    A new (and bigger) home for my T. Albo!

    Will do! I'm expecting to wake up tomorrow and find all her nice leaves buried under 2 inches of soil.

    A new (and bigger) home for my T. Albo!

    I finally got around to moving Shelob to her new home! I wasn't planning on doing it this soon but the Exo Terra tank I ordered arrived early, plus today I went to a reptile store and found an amazing piece of cork (never thought I'd get excited over a piece of cork lol) and just couldn't wait...

    Best 5/6 gallon enclosure for a T?

    I watched a ton of videos by Serpadesign, their tanks are amazing. In the future I would love to make my own tanks, but I'm really afraid to mess up and stress out my Ts for no reason. I will definitely attempt when I have more free time though.

    Best 5/6 gallon enclosure for a T?

    Hey everyone! My T. Albo, my little bulldozer, has finally defeated all laws of gravity with her tunnels but she is not quite happy with her work yet. It's clear she finally needs more space and I've been looking for a tank everywhere but can't find exactly what I need. I'm in need of a 5 or...
