Curious as to how many here have rescued a T that was clearly in the wrong setup? To preface this, I normally always buy my tarantulas from a breeder. Tonight my girlfriend and I were getting groceries and decided to walk over to petco just to see if they had anything in. Sure enough, they had a 4 inch a.seemanni. Poor thing was on a half inch of dry substrate with a light beating down on it and an oversized hide for protection. Normally I would never purchase a T from petco, but they wanted $39 for it and apparently they had it in for less than a week. So as you probably guessed, I took it home. Currently it’s in a large keeper with 7-8 inches of lightly damp substrate. I’m assuming I’m not the only one has done this. Curious as to what T’s others have rescued?
