I'm new to the hobby, and about a month ago my girlfriend bought me a Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula (sorry, don't know the scientific names like everyone else seems to on this site lol :/ ) so naturally i've got a few questions upon how to raise it, and how i've been raising it! Pictures below are what i'm keeping it in! Is that a good habitat for her? Also, i've read on a couple sites that they wont eat unless they're hungry, and every time I feed her she eats, more than a couple times a week! Is that normal or is she just starved haha! Also, she sometimes after she eats she'll sit in her water dish and drinks most of the water! it's incredible, is that normal? haha other than that she seems happy. Do I need a heater of any sort? Please get back to me, I really enjoy my spider and hope to collect more, but only if i'm suitable to the hobby!
