Advertisement I see. Well, it makes a lot of difference to know what species you are dealing with. It is not wise to prepare for 'just any spider' and than go ahead and purchase something. Congratulations! Never had one myself, but they are not too difficult to care for. It is perhaps not the very easiest beginner tarantula, so you need to keep a few things in mind. Keep its enclosure slightly damp. Please be warned that you should not try to handle this species!! They grow very quickly and have a very healthy appetite. This means that - unless in premolt - they respond to the slightest movements and attack anything that comes close. They are not aggressive per se, they just don't differentiate between a cricket or your finger. They get fairly large and so will their fangs. Although not any less painful, at least he did not mean it when he bites you They also have a tendency to kick hairs, more so than other 'typical' beginner species. The scientific name of this spider is Acanthoscurria geniculata, by the way. It is much appreciated on this forum if you use the proper scientific name (and you look more knowledgeable ). I still strongly suggest that you do some extra reading on this particular species. Feel free to post some pictures for others to see if they have some tips on your enclosure setup. Success!
