Which species of tarantula should I buy?

If you’re a beginner keeper, the recommended pet tarantulas to buy typically belong to the genus Brachypelma. This includes everyone’s favourite, the Mexican red knee, along with the Mexican fire leg. Members of the genus Grammostola, such as the Brazilian black and chilean rose, are other popular beginner tarantula choices due to their weak venom and docile temperament. The green bottle blue, curly hair tarantula and Arizona blonde are other brilliant choices.

What do tarantulas eat? What should I feed my spider?

Tarantulas are carnivorous spiders that primarily feast on invertebrates such as insects and other arachnids. Some species, known as “bird eaters”, have been known to tackle larger animals, both birds and mammals in the wild, however the bulk of their diet consists of other creepy crawlies.

My pet tarantula just arrived, what's next?

The wait is over! It’s time to carefully unpackage your pet tarantula from its transport container. Ensure you’ve prepared your tarantulas enclosure ahead of time so it’s ready for your pet to get straight in. Make sure you have a clear place to unpack your spider where it can’t run away. You can either place the transport container in its habitat as it comes, or gentle unwrap any tissue and ease it out. Contact and handling of any kind is not recommended. Then, leave it to burrow and settle in.

How do I care for a tarantula? Are they easy to care for?

Yes! Tarantulas are one of the simplest exotic pets you can keep, and are super low-maintenance even as far as invertebrates go. Terrestrial tarantulas require a habitat at least 3x their total leg-span in substrate depth and width. Enclosures can be acrlyic, glass, or even plastic, as long as they’re secure. Tarantulas will need regular weekly feedings of livefood items like roaches, crickets, locusts, grubs, and more. A shallow water dish will allow them to drink, along with regular misting of their substrate and enclosure to keep humidity high.

Do tarantulas make good pets?

Tarantulas make excellent display pets, and feeding them is always entertaining. Naturally, they’re not going to provide the same experience as caring for a cat or dog, but they’re brilliant fun, and have a huge community of spider keepers to vouch for them.

Can tarantulas be kept together?

In 99% of cases, no. Tarantulas are highly aggressive save for a few species that, at best, tolerate company. Housing multiple spiders together will result in cannibalism, so each should be kept separately. Even mating-time is a highly dangerous situation for male spiders, breeding should be heavily researched before attempting, and always supervised.
