    A. Geniculata Clinging to The Enclosure Corner.

    Hey all, My 6cm-7cm A. Geniculata arrived two days ago. since then, it has only stood on the side of the enclosure. I know it takes a few days for them to settle down, but I think something may be wrong since this is the only location it is hanging out in. When it was first put in the...

    Black Widow Egg Sack

    Hey guys! First time here as I'm newer to the hobby and am in deep here. I have a very happy healthy female Latrodectus Mactans (southern black widow) who has just produced an egg sack. She is guarding it pretty heavily and it's beautiful! I just am at a loss as to what I can or should do with...

    My T. Albopilosus hasn't been coming out for the last month or so.

    My T is about two years old, female, and has never hidden away this long after I first got her. Her tank has the right moisture content, she always has access to water and (dead) food supply in case she molts and needs food/water, and none of the wood in her tank is rotting as it's checked...

    Feeding trouble

    Hello :] I know this is very silly, but I recently got a new tarantula, a Trinidad Dwarf juvenile, and I've been having some issues/concerns about feeding her. She's my first tarantula old enough to eat live food, but I'm not super sure of how to do that? I don't feel comfortable leaving live...

    Dubai roaches left in with T for a while?

    I’m very worried and lean to be more on the safe side when it comes to stuff like this but trying to get her to eat, six roaches ending up burrowing under the substrate two are pretty close to her and on the surface of the substrate but It’s hard to get them out since they are stuck to the web...

    Advice please

    I've never posted on any forum before, and have no idea if I'm doing this right? But if so, hi :] I just got my first ever spiderling, a little Tliltocatl albopilosus and have a probably silly question, but I cant seen to find anything elsewhere. A few days ago when I went to spray her moss...

    Feeding a new sling

    Hello all, After months of deliberation, I have finally acquired my first tarantula. It’s a B hamorii that’s about a half inch, I would say. Its abdomen is bigger than I expected it would be, and now I’m squarely conflicted on whether to feed it or wait a week or two. I need some more seasoned...

    Is this okay??

    Hey guys, I just got a new pink toe a couple days ago. I just noticed the T to be curling up one leg like a death curl but no other legs do this. When I lift the lid the T goes back into a normal stance. Is it just chilling like that or should I be worried? It hasn’t eaten yet but im guessing...
