Husbandry Recommendations - 5"+


This is a terrestrial spider, so it will require an enclosure which offers more floor space than vertical space. The rule-of-thumb for the width or length or the enclosure is 3-4x leg span minimum. We recommend this large spider be housed in a 10 gallon enclosure. We offer an acrylic conversion kit that will keep in humidity and allow for easy viewing. This enclosure will be suitable for the life of the spider. Our choice of substrate is a unique blend of coco and other organic materials - Hunter's Premium Substrate. This substrate will retain humidity, allow for sturdy burrows, and resist mold or fungal growth. Next, offering a cork bark flat creates a natural aesthetic and a safe retreat for your spider. Finalize the enclosure by adding Sphagnum Moss, Mixed Leaf Litter, or Magnolia Leaves

With this species,  maintaining some level of moisture in the substrate is necessary. Soaking a corner once a week should be sufficient. You can alternate corners. The substrate should never be fully dried out. However, we also want to avoid sopping wet substrate or standing water. 

Common tools which would be helpful in caring for this spider include tweezers. These are used for feeding, cleaning, and rearranging the enclosure if needed. Another useful tool is a Mister. This allows for controlled and purposeful watering. 

Our suggestion for feeders is large crickets. Other larger insect feeders also work - red runners, dubia roach, mealworms (smash the heads first).
