    Costa Rican Zebra enclosure

    Buckeye, our affectionately and poorly named A. Seemani got her permanent upgrade today. It's somewhat western themed, because even though we're planning on adding a red knee and an arizona blond i couldnt wait to do a western theme haha

    Favorite Arboreal t's?

    I have a fairly large exo terra that I had originally purchased for my pokie, but since she's got a ways to grow I think I'd rather put another t in it! So my question is what are your favorite arboreal species and why? Preferably mid level keeping...

    Finally got a pokie!!

    I took the plunge today and got a p. vittata, mostly by chance. I wasn’t planning on getting one for a while ( I was actually looking for a sun tiger on the rec of some more experienced keepers) when I found a 2" vittata for less than 80 at a reptile show, and I couldn’t say no (they’re banning...

    Wild feeding?

    I had a question about varying tarantula diets. Ive heard some people will catch wild insects to feed to their t's as a means of increasing diet variety. Is this a good idea? My T's live off a staple of dubias, with crickets and mealworms sprinkled in now and then. Should I be doing more to vary...

    New T Hobbyist :)!

    Hello! I'm a recent tarantula enthusiast from Fort Collins. I currently share a curly hair (Hemlock) and own a costa rican zebra (Buckeye). We also had a sling but lost her to dehydratyion, we believe. Any humidity/enclosure tips or links are really appreciated! I eventually want a mexican red...
