Hi,

I just got a Theraphosa Stirmi sling from my local reptile/arachnid breeder. The sling is currently in a small tupperware (which is what she was sold to me in). Of course, I plan on immediately getting a better enclosure for the sling, but I'd love to see some suggestions and hear some good brands. Thanks!

I have my grown on T.blondi sling probably 6cm leg span in a 5lt tub.

It doesn't really matter what you house it in, it's the conditions you want to get right. They require a few inches of moist substrate and a proper hide, they will almost always burrow if they have what they need to get started. You can use cork bark and dig a crevasse underneath and your T should take to it.

Most importantly you want to have ample ventilation, as they need good moisture levels and without this you end up with a stuffy cage, next step is to feed regularly and keep a nice full water dish available. Some believe they are hard to keep but they have been nothing but easy for me, one of my all time favorite species.
