Euathlus sp. red Husbandry Video

With school in full swing (I’m a teacher by trade), I’ve had less time to sit in front of the computer and write my blog posts. Writing time has basically been limited to weekends for the time being.

However, as I am always diddling around in my tarantula room, it is quite convenient to whip out the camera and catch some footage as I work. It’s been a bit of an awkward transition (talking to an audience you can’t see is a LOT different from teaching a classroom full of kids), but I’m actually finding it a lot of fun.

This video was particularly fun to film, as this cute little girl just did not want to stay in her enclosure! She is easily the most inquisitive tarantula I keep.

A little side note: if you’re interested in this species and you find one for sale, buy it.  With Chili closing it’s borders to the exportation of their species (many of the young adults offered on the market were wild caught) and with few people breeding them, the Euathlus is becoming very difficult to come by.

  1. You did this vid just to tease me. I have found a supplier that has a few, but my pet budget for the month is strapped due to a certain saltwater adventure I’ve been on. Pinged you on G+ for a funny one by the by. Keep keepin’! 🙂
