Hi all. I'm looking into adopting my first tarantula and currently have my eye on an A avicularia sling. I've been looking through the threads here as well as asking questions in some other locations. But several of you seem like real experts and I'd like to get the rundown on this species particularly before bringing one home. I'd like everything to be perfect before I get the little one. I have nothing right now, so will be starting from scratch. But I've kept reps and amphibians for years so I'm familiar with the requirements some exotics come with. The T will be kept in an upstairs bedroom which holds a pretty stable temperature of around 70 F. It does get very dry in this room in the winter and very humid in the summer.
