What kind of cage do I buy for a Chilean Rose Tarantula?
When they are babies, tarantulas can live inside a Tupperware container with small holes poked on top for breathing purposes. Create a layer of peat moss, a ground sand, or top soil for the little ones. Once they grow into a full size a 5- 10 gallon aquarium is suitable for your pet, but some pet owners like to go for bigger containers or aquarium which is also fine. Being that this species is terrestrial or a ground dweller the spacing inside your cage or its length and width are far more important than its height.
