    Hello everyone,

    I'm having trouble finding adequate research on keeping this species, let alone any pictures of them! I ordered one off of Tarantula Canada because they were selling like hot cakes and vinegaroons are rarely available in Canada + I wanted one :p!

    Anyways, are they kept nearly the same as Mastigoproctus giganteus because I could only find caresheets on these guys. It's not normally like me to purchase a specimen without knowing it's care requirements but I have plenty of experience with other arachnids and really didn't think it would be this hard to find info on this species...:?

    If anyone part of the online community might have some advice, facts, etc on keeping these guys or some pics to share I would greatly appreciate the help! :) I have a 1 inch specimen arriving sometime tomorrow. :D

    Thanks, Dayyan
     
  2. We keep ours with deep coco coir substrate and moderately humid and a water dish.
    A very cool species.

    Thanks Mackenzie!

    How long have you had yours? Does this species get very big? How are it's feeding habits/how often do you feed it (once a week)? I saw your picture of your specimen on another thread. Is that a recent picture?

    Thanks :)
