Comments: A tarantula's burrow


Today, in the afternoon, I decided to clean up the right part of a terrarium in which I keep two tarantulas. The right part, since the terrarium is split into two sections, each housing one tarantula.

Read the rest of A tarantula's burrow.


I thought those pictures were a little scary, but also very cool. I am doing a report on tarantulas and it helped me visualize their homes

Thanks Ali, glad to be of help and good luck on the report.

And yes, tarantulas scared me at first as well, but when I let finally walk an adult Brachypelma Vagans walk on my hand and arm the fear got much less. Somehow the large size of this tarantula made it easier.

I am still not very keen on handling small spiders.
