Why We’ve Selected These Items:
Exoterra’s 20x20x20cm terrarium allows your spider plenty of space to burrow, molt, and explore, without ever losing its livefood. Equipped with both top and front openings for cross-ventilation, this secure habitat allows plenty of air in and out of the enclosure to prevent mold-growth. Pro Rep’s 150g coco-coir block can be soaked in water to create a moisture-retaining loose substrate. Or, mix with other substrates such as sand if recommended for your species. ZooMed’s terrarium moss adds vibrancy to your enclosure, but it can also be soaked in water to keep your pet’s habitat humid. Scatter the floor with woodland leaves for a natural feel (also a brilliant food source for any isopods and spring tails, if you plan to add them) , and add in the two tropical plants, golden pothos and fern for extra cover, making your pet feel safe, secure, and at home in its natural habitat. The cork-bark hide gives your spider a place to build within, around, and a place to huddle down in for shelter.
For environmental control, we’ve opted for affordable, quality options including White Python’s combined hygrometer-thermometer, and a 15 x 15 heat mat. The heat mat should be attached to an external side of the enclosure (not inside the tank, and not on the base) to provide a gentle heat gradient that your spider can move closer to or further from as it pleases. The hygrometer-thermometer should be attached to the inside of the enclosure, and will give you an accurate reading as to if you’re keeping your habitat warm and humid enough.
Juveniles Under 7cm (Tarantulas need at least 3x their body length in free space to moult).
