Curly Hair tarantula (Tliltocatl albopilosus) – or formerly Brachypelma albopilosum – is one of the most classical tarantula species for captive culture. It is very easy to keep, rear and breed, so this is completely obvious why it is so popular!
Young instars need a bit more attention and care as they are very small – they can be kept in pretty small containers and fed with very small crickets or roaches, also you can use pieces of freshly killed mealworm.
Larger instars are readily accepting even larger prey, so such feeders as crickets, mealworms, morio worms, Pallid, Lobster or Dubia roaches, locusts or even newborn mice can be used to feed them.
As adult tarantula is pretty large and should be kept in an enclosure of 30x30x30cm or similar size, younger instars are perfectly living in any container of suitable size.
