H_albostriatum1h_albostriatum5Cyriopagopus albostriatum, also known as the edible spider or Thai zebra tarantula, is a moderately large fossorial tarantula species from Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia (rainforest areas). This species’s name comes from the Latin Greek prefix albo, meaning white, and the Latin word striatus, meaning lines or striped. This species has white stripes going down each leg, and a white zig-zag pattern on its opisthosoma (abdomen). These patterns on a black background have earned it the common name “Thai zebra tarantula.” This tarantula is very skittish and defensive, although it can also be very aggressive. It is an Old World tarantula and, therefore, has no urticating hairs. So, its only defenses are biting and fleeing. This tarantula is known to have venom that is more potent than that of many tarantula species.

WINTER IS HERE, KEEP YOUR TARANTULAS WARM

It is very important to keep your tarantulas warm in winter. Especially those tiny slings you just bought from the expo!

Most tarantulas come from tropical or sub-tropical areas, so unless you live in such a place, you’ll need to supply additional heating (unless your house is heated at a constant +25℃).  The most practical kind of heating for our purposes is the “heat-pad.”  This is a thin silver heating element which you put on the side of your tarantula tank (never underneath). This gives the spider the opportunity to regulate its own temperature by moving to the hot or cool side. Thermostats are available to regulate the heat, but they are not essential.  Many people leave heat-mats on all day or have them on plug-in-timers to come on at half-hour intervals.  Remember that household summer temperatures are sufficient for most tarantulas (so you can turn heat-mats off during the summer months).

An ideal temperature to keep tarantulas at is between 22-30℃.  Below this temperature they become sluggish and may stop feeding.  It’s best to avoid temperatures over 30℃. When using your new heat pad make sure your spider has water, as the peat can dry out very fast leafing your spider dehydrated and it can die.

Remember, tarantulas have Photophobia (hypersensitive to light), so don’t be tempted to use a light bulb to heat the tank. Avoid placing your tarantula tank near a window, the sun’s rays can rapidly turn your tank into an oven, killing the spider in the process.
