Welcome to Tarantula Care

There’s something rather odd about writing the first post on a blog.  Virtually nobody will ever read this, since at this point the site is brand new and nobody knows it’s here.  Hopefully over time this will grow to be a valued and popular resource for tarantula enthusiasts, but even if it grows to be a large and popular site, how many people are likely to search back through the archives and read this first post?  Not many!

Anyway, I hove you write a first post so here it is… If you did somehow find yourself reading this page then thanks for dropping by, and I hope that by the time you read this the site has grown from this little spiderling into a real goliath, and that there’s lots of much more interesting and useful content here for you ;)

Tarantula Caresheets

Below you’ll find an ever growing list of care sheets for various species of tarantula, commonly available to the pet trade.  Before looking to species specifics, be sure to read the general tarantula care page.  Specific information on keeping slings (spiderlings – baby tarantulas), arboreal (tree dwelling) species, and more advanced species with specific requirements will be added over time.
