Hello Forum, I've added a very tiny M. Balfouri sling to my collection, I would like to know what the best way to raise this little one would be, any advice on what substrate, enclosure, and setup to use?

So I flip on the Tonight Show just in time to see a guy put a B. smithi on Jimmy Fallon's shoulder. I really wish the animal guys that appear on talk shows wouldn't play with the critters. But of course I continue to watch. The guy goes on to place another spider on Fallon's head, explaining that...
I hope $15 was a good price could I could not resist. It's about an inch.
I went to the shop to get crickets and roaches and came home with a B. vagans.
It has recent become a curiosity to me how others organize their collections. Size of the T? Temp/humidity requirements? Do you quarantine your new arrivals? My collection started out being a mixed up mess of things wherever they would fit, but I'm currently working on creating a shelf...

A recent trip to the Eastern Cape, South Africa revealed one of the most beautiful baboon spiders we have seen. Dimitri Kambas and Taki Tsonis managed to find a burrow that looked very similar to that of the Namaqua baboon spider (Harpactira namaquensis). Digging only a few cm of the burrow allowed...

Of course you may need that bottle cap, and that bendi-straw. These old peat pots (reading, hmmm, no chemicals -- possible hide? better keep). Stouffers entree containers -- add some substrate and I bet the crickets could lay their eggs in there, better keep. Egg cartons -- you betcha they're...
