I live in Bastrop,TX. My daughter and I caught a spider, either tigrosa grandis or tigrosa georgicola. I'm hoping it might be a gravid female. We'd like to keep it, at least for a while, but we've never kept pet spiders before. I'm getting a little terrarium for it. Right now it's in a tupper container with holes in the lid, soil (very sandy, insecticide free) some leaves, a damp sponge, and a paper towel tube to hide in. Is this enough for a spider? I haven't found any crickets around my house yet, but I've got a near infinite supply of junebugs. Can they eat junebugs? The petstore where I purchased the terrarium also sold me a half dozen superworms, just to get us started. Hopefully she'll eat them. What advice can you give a pair of novice spider keepers? Since we're now quarantined we have to mostly make due with what we have and what we can find. I live in a rural, heavily wooded area.
