Arachnid & Tarantula Cages

There are so many different species of arachnid,that I could not possibly cover all of their housing needs in this section.

However there are a couple of important things to remember when buying housing in this section,is your arachnid arboreal or terrestrial, knowing this will help you decide upon a vertical or horizontal style of enclosure.

The other thing to remember is that most spiders are ambush predators, this means they wait until an item of prey walks past them,so the same thing applies to housing arachnids, as it does with preying mantis, and that is, you grow the enclosure with the spider, this makes it easier for the predator to catch it's prey.

Now most of the enclosures in this section are aimed at slings (young spiders) or juveniles the exception is wolf or jumping spiders for example. 

We recently supplied a well known zoological  society with some small enclosures to house some jumping spiders in their spider exhibit .

Most large tarantulas are best housed in converted aquariums or reptile vivs, I have a couple of salmon pink bird eaters housed  in this way.

If you are looking to house arboreal arachnids, please refer to the two links below, where the taller enclousres are displayed
