Hi "Golda",

E. cyanognathus will need a tall container with moist soil and enough room to burrow. As "kitty_b" stated they are more moisture dependant as spiderlings and to extend on that, if you don't provide them with the required moisture, they will parish. I have lost two spiderlings myself from not paying close attention to this.

This species is also an aggressive eater and will need to be fed often. If setup to allow a burrow, they can easily take down prey a bit larger than themselves. Other than those two main points, keep like any other moisture sensitive species.

These are also "have to" diggers so if you were thinking about not letting it burrow it will stress it out because they are obligate burrowers. As others has stated be prepared you will not see the T unless @ night (if it decides to come out @ night) Oh and forget about sexing them to cause if yours is like mine its a moult destroyer.
