Giant White Knee (Acanthoscurria geniculata) is large and easy to keep beautiful tarantula species.

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 a terrestrial type of enclosure of 30x30x30 cm or similar size, younger instars are perfectly living in any containers of suitable size. There must be a formidable layer of substrate and water dish.
