Chile Rose TarantulasDiet & Nutrition

Diet & Nutrition

The Chile Rose Tarantula eats a diverse menu including grass hoppers, crickets, moths, beetles, cockroaches and mealworms. When Tarantulas are kept as pets, the best food that can be provided for them are crickets that have been gut loaded on vegetables.

In general your Chilean Rose should be fed twice weekly with a maximum of three food items. The tarantula is not fond of eating dead prey. It is also a good idea to dust the prey with a Calcium and Vitamin D supplement to ensure healthy growth and development of the tarantula.

The spider has the potential to fast for weeks, it has a rather erratic diet schedule.
