Tarantula Lego City Tank

Introduction: Tarantula Lego City Tank

I wanted to build something unique for my spider to live in that has never been done before. I asked around to different reptile suppliers if they thought a spider would survive in a lego tank. My feedback was borderline from everyone but I did it anyway and made sure I still met all the spiders needs as in coverage and humidity. He has been living in there for three years now, eating and healthy.

    Severe mixed feelings about this. If he drops on those Lego's he will probably get a ruptured abdomen. Or break something. Isn't it just much more appropriate to keep him on spider/coco peat. I mean you can always construct a hide from the lego's

    Actually the smaller the area for spiders the better they do.

    Poor little guy. That can't be too comfortable for him. It's so crowded and smooth.

    As a tarantula keeper myself, I'd never consider putting a T in this.
    If the T fell it would injure itself badly, perhaps even die.
    They need substrate, wood bark, suitsble enclosures. Its hardly like they get bored. Their brains arent created they way.

    Nice enclosure, but... that's a terrestrial T, isn't it?

    It might be more suitable for an Avicularia.
