    So I made the leap and bought my first T, G. pulchripes, 6-8cm juvenile from TSS. Arrived safe and well this morning, and s/he seems to like the enclosure so far, was out exploring pretty much straight away. World, meet Anansi (Nancy if she turns out female).

    Congratulations and enjoy your first T baby. Welcome to the wonderful world of arachnids. :)

    I am sure you have done your research before this purchase but please don’t hesitate to ask a question if you can’t find the answer on here.

    Great species, one of the very best to start out with. I absolutely adore mine and you will too. The setup looks good, but I would do away with the rocks. There is a risk of them falling on your tarantula if they decide to burrow under them. I never put anything too heavy in my enclosures.

    Thanks, I'll keep an eye on her and take them out if she starts messing around too much. They're not heavy though, weigh less than the water dish.

    I know a lot of people don't advocate handling, and I understand the reasons why, but this curious little one crawled right out onto my hand while I was changing the water dish out. Super chilled, had a little wander and then went back into the enclosure. Both the enclosure and I were sat on the floor, catch cup to hand, wasn't taking any chances.
