Advertisement So my husband has convinced me into getting our first Tarantula(Well as a couple he had one years back). He wanted a Goliath bird-eater Spider (Theraphosa blondi) but I am not comfterable with a Spider that size. So We haggled and aggreed on Brachypelma smithi which is the only Tarantula to date next to the cobalt blue(Which I would never keep as it is SUPER fast and aggressive, Ive met one close up at a private tour of our local zoo in the back room). That I woud keep as I like the look of them. And other than being a bit nervous Are known to be a bit slower moving. Our friends husband Asked for A Tarantula as well so we are going to be going in on an order with the wonderfull Tarantula Canada(Only place I vowed I would ever order from If I ever did get one) and Both of us have decided on the same Species. Now when we get them they will be around 1/2" and We were wondering what to house them in at first(We were thinking a Critter keeper of some sort) and what substrate etc). A good in depth caresheet on them as well as Tarantulas in general would be welcome also.
