I rehoused my Cyriocosmus elegans (Trinidad Dwarf Tiger) tarantula into this acrylic enclosure quite a while back and everything about it was going smoothly. I then travelled to New Zealand for a two week vacation and as soon as I got back, I noticed there was a mold outbreak in her enclosure. I was only away for two weeks!! and all mold breaks loose.
If you’re wondering why the enclosure is damp; It’s part of my effort to help against the heat wave that is currently happening here. So far I’ve noticed that when substrate is kept relatively damp, the temperature within that enclosure is significantly reduced. Yes, I know that the mold was caused by the dampness, but my point is; It was fine for weeks on hand.. till I leave for vacation, pfft.

My TARANTULAs are getting an EVEN BIGGER ROOM than mine !!! [+BONUS tarantula FEEDING] ..
I put my TARANTULAs in SHOE BOXES [here's why] ..
A lizard WILL NOT fit in this cage, China. A dwarf TARANTULA, however ..

  • Anyone know where I can buy this enclosure? Or the measurements for this enclosure so I can get a similar sized one. I’m looking to buy a Trinidad Dwarf Tiger and worried about where to house the lil broski. If you know please let me know

  • You should probably take those moldy enclosures outside in the future to clean them off so you don't accidentally spread spores around inside and potentially contaminate other enclosures

  • Yo Exotic, I don't know if this may be in your interest, but on a old depliant of "science toys for kids" I saw a so called "insect catcher": basically a very mild vacuum that is capable of catching insect and stores them alive inside a little bottle, so kids could possibly watch and study them. I think a tool like this would be fantastic for you, as sometimes you struggle picking up small spiders

  • For some reasons when tarantulas are small or their babies they scare the hell out of me because they look like a regular house spider. I don't get it either. The bigger and what year they are the cuter they are in my opinion. The smaller they are they just like big giant house spiders. Oh I can't wait to get my little jumpies.
