So I've decided after much research and help from this forum that I think a B smithi would be the perfect starter tarantula for me. This is the adult enclosure and care plan. So basically here's what the basic setup would be. Exo Terra 12" 12" 12" (with modified lid) Eco Earth (coconut substrate) this will be made as high as possible to prevent falling, and allowing proper burrowing behavior if desired. Should I mix this with something else for proper burrowing material? Cork slab or half cork would be used as a hide. Small water dish Tarantula rock burrow https://jamiestarantulas.com/rock-tarantula-burrow/ As well as a few silk plants. I've also heard that a heat mat (with thermostat) may or may not be good to use. Any thoughts? My home is 68 F during the winter and 78 F - 80 F during the summer. Any thoughts? Thanks!
