Cobalt Blue Tarantula , A Beauty for Adv. Keepers who have kept Defensive S

By

Posted Nov 07, 2009

I have female adult Cobalt Blue Tarantula , this species is not for beginner species it is a old world tarantula which Old Worlds have more potent venom. This is also a burrowing Tarantula so there is a possibility of never seeing it.  The way my tank is setup i can see her 24/7 unless she goes in her hide which she uses seldom.

My tank is setup to where the entire cage is covered with a towel(getting black construction paper would probably work better) and the top part of her cage is covered with seram wrap to enable the humidity to stay in. I give her half the tank filled  with substrate so she can burrow but seeing as her cage is dark all the time she thinks the whole cage IS her burrow, PLEASE NOTE if you use this method they will become more defensive so be careful, i have noticed if your tarantula hates the light just turn it on during cage maitence and you will be fine.
