Chile Rose TarantulasHabitat & Handling

Where do Tarantulas Like to Live?

A small tank is suitable for Chile Rose Tarantulas. The width of the tank should be two to three times wider than the leg span of the spider, and only as tall as the spider's leg span. Peat moss, soil, or vermiculite can be used as a substrate. A hide will also be needed to keep your Spider happy.

Handling

The Chile Rose is fast on its feet and quick to run at the slightest sign of danger. They have a quick self defensive system and can often be seen raising their front legs to expose their fangs when confronted with danger. The small and spiky hairs on the abdomen of the spider stand up when it senses danger.

These Tarantulas are quite docile and low maintenance. While they are not very venomous, they can inflict a painful bite, and severe allergic reactions to their venom are possible. Caution is recommended. particularly if allergies are known.

Regular handling of tarantulas is not recommended since they can be seriously injured if they fall even a small distance.
