    Default The Tarantula Times...

    0 Not allowed!
    May as well start a log of the experience! It's totally new for me!

    Went shopping today...went to Michaels and got 2 small containers...just have to drill a series of ventilation holes in them (hopefully they don't shatter). Bought some ExoTerra 'Plantatation Soil'. If that's not suitable I'll keep looking for something better.

    They had their decorative pebbles on I bought some of those to put in the water dish (so the babies don't drown - as well as the crickets).

    Bought two tiny 2 oz ceramic bowls at PetSmart...will fill with pebbles and water...should be easy to clean out and sanitize and should hold enough water to evaporate for high humidity levels.

    Then I bought a tray to put the containers on...impulse reason it can't look purty...

    The tray is beautiful. Maybe just put a flower in each container and skip the spider altogether? Haha

    How exciting to watch your tarantula adventure progress. Can't wait for more pictures. Nice setup.

    LOL..or a spider plant? Maybe you can find one in Blue?
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    I could buy another plastic cube for a flower...put it between the two's that for compromise?

    The cheque went in the mail this morning... now I have to restrain myself from asking every 15 minutes "is it there yet?". Then I have to restrain myself from asking "is it warm enough to ship them yet?"...followed by restraint in asking "has the mail arrived yet?"...

    ...which I'm sure will be shortly followed by "have they moulted yet?" and "have they come out of their burrow yet"?

    The T afficionados affectionately call the burrow entrance the 'pet hole'.

    I think I need to learn a little meditation...have some Zen moments...T keeping is not for the impatient...

    Or for the spider-phobic >> You can keep the creepy-crawlies

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    There were quite a variety of baby tarantulas at the reptile show we checked out the day before we flew down to Myrtle Beach last month. First show we'd ever been to, and couldn't buy anything because we were outbound. There were even some of the bird eating spiders available, and like the snakes the prices were shockingly low compared to an lfs. Hatchling corn snakes of just about any color morph were $20-25, yearling regular red tail boas were $30-40. Planning to go to the Hamburg show in 2 weeks, apparently it's much bigger than the one we went to.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.
