is that your first T? And by that I mean how detailed do you want these instructions to be :) If you're familiar with T-keeping, then this will suffice:

Keep the substrate dry and provide only a water dish.. Once every couple of months you can overfill it a bit. And provide about 4-5" of substrate because they might burrow.

sounds like you did zero research beforehand... dry is a must for Grammostola. a 5" pulcripes like that could be fed maybe once a week to once a month, no more than once a week though.

1. get rid of the sticks, they look sharp and she can hurt herself
2. give her way more substrate - they like to burrow - and keep it dry
3. give her a water dish
4. keep her between 70-80 degrees
5. feed her, though she looks quite plump so she may not be hungry - don't be surprised if she doesn't eat - once a week should be more than enough
6. use the "search" function :)

I'd go for a 30cm by 30cm enclosure, and one super worm a week will suffice. You can do 2 but it's not necessary.
Which is about 12 inches

There's a lot of conflicting (and false) information on youtube, facebook, google, etc. Generally this is the best place to be :)
You will have a very cranky Chaco if you mist her every day :D

Stop going there for advice please.

Dry sub, never mist..in fact, never mist any terrestrial....also never keep any t on wet sub...some require a certain degree of moisture, but that should never be accomplished by misting and it should never be wet. This species has zero moisture requirements unless theyre under an inch.

Adopt the metric system already, Americans! At least Celsius! It makes a hell of a lot more sense than your F :p
Oh I agree, I work with Japanese cars all day long which are metric so it makes more sense to me than our US system... someday we'll figure it out over here :banghead:

Acuras are the best, I love my TSX :D

Sorry to derail your post OP, back to the Chaco. Can we maybe see a picture of the whole enclosure?
Funny that that car is known as the type R accord everywhere on the planet but the us.

ha-ha-ha :D I don't need a computer to convert your units into ours :D Maybe farenheit :D I'm just saying! :p 1/8 of an inch vs 3mm :p

@Paiige I drove a 99' mazda 323F with half a milion kilometers for 5 years with NOTHING being wrong with the car ever. I changed the car this november because Mazda was too rusty.. Engine-wise - flawless. Indestructable car.. Aside from rust :p
