I am interested in caring for giant banana spiders. Is there anywhere I can start?

Banana spider is usually the common name for the Wandering Spider. The one I'm never lucky enough to find.

Nephila pilipes is the species I am mostly interested in. Now I hear they need like a net cube cage.

Nephila, Phoneutria... no big difference :rofl:

You need a very large cage frame for them, or else a door frame for it to web up if you don't have other pets or kids. They make a huge web. You can catch wild Nephila clavipes in Florida.
