The largest tarantula species in the world by body mass and length!

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 really large it should be kept in a horizontal enclosure of 45x345x30cm minimum size, younger instars are perfectly living in any container of suitable size. Good substrate layer is advisable, up to 10 cm for an adult spider.
