Bob's Info...

Bob's Story...
Bob is a Brazilian Black Tarantula that came to us through a large confiscation. We do not know the sex of either tarantula, but are referring to him as "him"! His "buddy" Jim and he were the only 2 survivors of the group. After rehydration, feeding and proper set up, they have now blossomed into healthy happy critters!

Brazilian Black Tarantula. (Sex is unknown)
Range: Grassland areas of Brazil and Uruguay.

Type: Terrestrial.

Diet: Spiderlings eat pinhead crickets, and other small insects. Adults eat crickets, other large insects, small lizards, pinkie mice, and an occasional fuzzy mouse.

Full Grown Size: 5 to 6 inches.

Growth: Slow speed.

Temperature: 75 to 85° F.

Humidity: 75 to 80%. All tarantulas that have at least a 3" legspan may drink from a shallow, wide water dish.

Temperament: Docile and calm.

Housing: Spiderlings can live in a clear plastic deli-container with air holes. Adults can live in a 10-gallon tank. Floor space is more important than height.

Decor: No decorations are really needed, but you can add a log, or cork bark

The Brazilian Black Tarantula has often been called the "best pet tarantula", with good reason. Brazilian Black Tarantulas are very docile, impressive, and hence the name, jet black tarantulas.

Females of this species have been known to live for over 20 years!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bob, a Windsor Tarantula was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Tarantula for sale in Windsor, or seeking a Tarantula from a breeder in Windsor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Windsor already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Windsor breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Tarantula breeders who help with Tarantula rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Windsor paves the way for another one to be saved.
