I am struggling to find some good husbandry advice on the internet.

How do you keep yours??

I'm guessing they are terrestrial due to the size they get, just wondering about temp, humidity and whether they like to burrow??

Really nice looking spider. Love how cute mine is at the mo but it'll look amazing when it gets those colours. They're meant to be quite aggressive aren't they? How do you go about handling yours?

Hi Jamie,

This particular T has made itself a pretty cosy hide, burrowed downwards. The dry coir substrate is 3-4". Temp is 78f day and 70f night. I never worry about or measure humidity but as with ALL my T's, it has a constant supply of 'fresh' clean water, which is 'slightly' overfilled as and when.

Otherwise they are a hardy species, great feeders and subsequently, fast growers.

Good Luck

Back on topic, here's my little HB which I hope will grow up to be a very nice spider :)



If it'll sit on my hand without biting me when it's bigger too then that'd be a bonus!
