Looking for information on this species, as I'm looking into getting some.

I keep mine (around 1" dls) on dry substrate, they don't seem to burrow much but they do web and it's quite often either up the plant or on the lid of the container.
Be warned though they are fast and will attempt escape at the slightest opportunity.:eek:

Noted, thanks for the advice and warning. Already know how I'm going to deal with the speed.

Wow, didn't even know they were available in the hobby! I remember seeing a video by bugsnstuff where they were found hiding in dry stone walls in, I think it was Cyprus. If I've got the wrong species, I'm happy to be corrected! Trust us Europeans to have a cranky Houdini tarantula!
