I put the TARANTULAs in SHOE BOXES [here's why] ..

    Weather’s been pretty hot these couple months, and it has claimed the life of a few of my tarantulas. With that, I’ve came up with a solution to combat the heat within their enclosures; and that is transferring them into plastic shoe box tubs. On the tubs, I’ve made two ventilation holes on opposite sides, which should retain coolness and slow down the rate of evaporation as compared to holes on the top lid. Substrate is also kept relatively damp to lower the chance of dehydration. Also, their water dishes stay filled much longer this way.

    What I’m doing for them is based on the surrounding conditions over here. It will be very different for other countries that have different surrounding temperature surroundings/humidity. If anyone has any further questions regarding why I’m doing this, feel free to Tweet me on Twitter (Social media links down below), as I’m unable to keep track of every comment on this video.

    (Oh, and of course, a short update on my Flower Horn, as some of you requested).

      I kind of understand why you put them in shoeboxes, but I can't help but feel bad for them. I am a huge animal lover and I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to tarantulas, but like that they look more as a storage unit than beloved pets. Although you seem to love them so much and know them very well... I am so torn on how I feel about this.

          Can you please make the tank more lively for your fish with hiding places and plants? I feel so bad for it being in such a bland tank. It makes me sad

                    i wouldn't put those plastic tubs on top of each other... at least not more than two or maximum of three. The substrate... is basically dirt, and heavy as hell. You don't want to squish your big butt spooders (hahahahah) when the bottom tub is gonna give out.... Just saying.
