Care Tips For Brazilian Black

A ten gallon fish tank or terrarium tank with a locking screen  makes a great habitat for the spider. A heating pad ought to be placed under one side of the cage to keep the temperature around 80F while the cool side can remain at room temperature. The tarantula will likewise need a little water bowl and a location to hide. Around four inches of substrate should line the bottom of the tank. Eco-Earth works great as a substrate which is ground up coconut shells.  A piece of cork bark will certainly act as an ideal hiding place (half a coconut shell won’t be large enough for an adult!)


A diet plan of big crickets, cockroaches and locusts ought to be supplied. But as with all tarantulas, feed prey products of a suitable size (no bigger than the spider’s abdomen).
