Giant White knee Tarantula

By

Flemington, Missouri, United States

Posted Oct 29, 2016

This little Tarantula isn't a Giant yet....I love watching them grow and change with each molt. The A.geniculata is a tropical,larger species of Tarantula. It is considered to be moderately aggressive, always eager for it's next meal.
I provide a shallow water dish,( for this little one) I fill a bottle cap, and keep half the substrate moist at all times. I provide a small cork bark hide and a fake plant. I use coconut fiber as the primary substrate. It is called the Giant white knee, as it grows I will continue rehousing it to a larger cage.It may or may not burrow , and it occasionally likes to climb on the sides of the tank. I have many Tarantulas and so far this one has been a pleasure to keep.
