Tarantula caresheet / Experiences

  • This is for people who keep or would like to keep Tarantulas, and to share experiences, problems and how they found solutions. I have colour coded these as green – docile and should be able to handle and for beginners. Yellow  – need to have some experience for these and can be semi aggressive or move quickly. Red – can be very fast or aggressive or both and should not be handled
  • If we can get people to put their experiences here, I am sure this will help others in what is the best  spiders to keep,  how to keep them, size of containers or space needed for the spiders , heating,  foods and problems. Everyone needs help now and again so this would help as a reference to these issues for everyone.
  • Breeding how you got on breeding, what spiders you have breed, how did you do it and were you successful.
  • Have you been bitten? By which spider, how bad and what happened?
