    Not trying to step on anyone's toes, mass. Systematic phylogenetics I know, but I don't know derp about tarantula captivity or breeding. I'll leave that to more experienced people.

    "All tarantulas belong to the Theraphosidae family, which resides in the Mygalomorphae infraorder. Like the mygalomorphs, araneomorphs (true spiders) are also included in the spider suborder Opisthothelae. They are however easily differentiated from the araneomorphs (true spiders) by the articulation of their chelicerae or jaws. In mygalomorphs the jaws are positioned in such a way that they strike downwards towards the ground whereas araneomorph jaws close together in a sideways pincer movement. The second suborder of spiders (Mesothelae) has mygalomorph type jaws, but uniquely possess an abdomen covered dorsally with ‘armour’ plates. "

    @chibae: thanks for the clarification. so all spiders are Araneae, but the true spiders are found in the subfamily Araneomorphae and so are called something completely different all together.

    The joys of taxonomy....

    I was scouting out terrariums today. Would a regular 20 gal with screen top be best or should I go with an Exo Terra? The Exo Terra low terrariums would allow for better side air circulation, but they're much more expensive.

    You don't want to encourage the T to climb, as she could hurt herself with a fall.
    She's a New World terrestrial.
    So just a regular ol' 20 gallon with a screen (clamped) lid.
    More ground space the better.

    I have my chilean rose hair in an exoterra cube tank with about a square foot of ground space. It acts more like a scorpion. It makes huge extensive burrows in the coco peat substrate I gave it and has made pretty much the entire ground his web. I drop 10 crickets in the tank every week. I would love to give it more give it a bigger tank but with all my CPs and a reef aquarium I cant. I have found tarantulas extremely easy to take care of. Good luck with your specimen, I hope everything goes well for it.

    They actually just came out with a new Low series. They're only 12" tall. It looks like I won't need to get it for a while since the little guy is only 1.5" wide right now.
