Special Considerations:
Keep individually, Always provide a hiding place. The ideal enclosure should have two hiding spots, one kept dry and one with some wet moss for humidity. If it is too dry when a Tarantula is about to molt, they can die. A humid burrow aids in their molting process. Heat pads can dry out and kill Tarantulas. ALWAYS use caution when handling tarantulas. Some people can have bad reactions to a bite.
