Still to this day, I am not quite sure how I came to take care of Wicked, but she sat in a moss covered ten gallon aquarium and drew the attention of everyone who visited my studio. The spider, although nervous around a great deal of activity was very easy to care for, until she started preparing to be a mother, and then I knew she had to go to someone who could better care for her new family.
Taking care of a spider is easy: feed crickets, make room for them to crawl around, don't let them get too cold.
Some people are sensitive or allergic to spider venom. I do not recommend handling for children.
