Way too big-- 2 times by 3 times their legspan is plenty of room-- a 2 1/2 gal would be fine for it.

Skeletons don't get very big. I keep mine in a 5 gal. They love to web up the whole space.

sorry ask out of turn but, do these burrow?
To answer your question, yes, they do burrow. However skeletons are more fond of constructing a webbed hide near burrow entrances rather than digging. They will create extravagant webs packed with leaves, moss and substrate rather than dig a hole. Though some do dig on occasion.

mmmmmm......... i think i want one. thanks
Great choice. They are my favorite T's.

Just remember these guys move really quick. And if you get one with a temper it will flick hairs at you by rubbing its pedipalps on its chelicera. Mine is as docile as a kitten... but I've heard stories.
