    Beautiful new tarantula! What can I expect from a tropical species?

    Enclosure size

    The size of the enclosure isn’t important.(no walls in the wild) a small secure place to hide is required thou. Over exposure can cause a T stress and lead to other issues.

    My most gorgeous T

The 3rd locality is Ometepe Island. I’ve never seen an adult myself so if anyone who has a picture can post...

    Only thing I will add is that Albopilosus has 3 localities and this is from Nicaragua not Honduras as previously mentioned

    Question Regarding Choice of Hideout and Water Dish

    Tbh we use glass dishes but only because they had cheesecake in them and they looked good . Most of ours are plastic thou.

    The hazards of raising tarantulas in the Northeast (New York).

    I’m not a people person so that may be why I don’t like city life. :)

    The hazards of raising tarantulas in the Northeast (New York).

    “The greatest city on earth” to me is like saying “the best limb to have amputated”. Maybe not as bad as the others but still not ideal. Tried city living for a while, can’t do it :)
