Care sheets are notorious for being inaccurate. The best thing that you could do would be to research the area from which these are found in and geographic and climatic conditions that exist there. I don’t have this species but I spend a week in Arizona every year and know the state quite well. I’d say just off the top of my hat that this species could be kept dry with a water source. If you want to see it then don’t allow it to burrow. If you want it to live a natural life style allow it to burrow. You can make a nice pre-made burrow by simply digging out some soil leaving about two inches in the bottom. Insert a paper towel tube held up right in that space. Gently back fill in around the tube compacting firmly but not too firmly until the hole is level with the rest of the substrate. If you’ve done this correctly then a gentle twist of the tube as you pull it up and out will leave a nice sized pre-made burrow that your spider will find and use. Room temperature should be fine all year around. Don’t mist these, as they are a dry environment spider. Feed it and enjoy what it does naturally.

Thanks for the info buckwheat. It is believed to be a flagstaff orange, found in Yarnell,AZ.
jager, If I tape a fake eggsack underhim, do I still get a million? HA. Yeah, if I don't get a female then I will send him out on loan:)

the male will get hooks on the tibia like the rest of the aphonopelma and get bulbs on the palps. if he dont have those he isnt mature yet...

Hey jager, yeah, I figured that but what does the web look like? I don't really see the hooks yet but haven't really examined him. He is a beauty though.

its possible, if craig slows his down by not feeding and keeping cooler and you keep the female warmer and feed her more... the male amy slow down enough for the female to mature first...

you would slow the feeding down to 0 crix 0 times per week for 3 months lol and cool him to say 70-75 F (like bring in the house in A/C)

and the female would be warmed to say 80-85 F and fed 2 crix every other day or more if it eats them fast
