what kind of enclosures do you guys use to raise pokies, i'm talking like 1''-1.5'' do you think raising them in the viles they come in will be to small?, just worried about them being able to catch food, and being able to keep a close on them, thanks--Jeff

I use the clear Rubbermaid plastic spice jars. They come in all sizes. Currently, the 1.5-2" range slings are in the 10oz tall square ones. The P formosa, at well over 2", is now in a 1/2 gallon one (I think), as is the A versicolor

Jeff,
my other half took off with the camera for the weekend, so I can't take pics. I will go through and see if I have any already, and if so, I'll post them.
Prices vary, from about $2 all the way up to $10 or so for a large pickle jar.

here you go, not the best pic, but it will give you an idea. Just measured the P formosa, and she's 3"

Jeff,
i use all the different size viles from thorton plastics.
they work good pokies untill they are about 2".then i use
the tall 4" deli untill they are about 4".then they go in a tall custom made tank.
hope this helps

It's not a stupid question:) . Pokie is short for the genus Poecilotheria. These are the spiders sold under the common name of ornamental tarantula.

I've seen spice containers that would do the trick near supermarket bulk spice cases.
