Named for their distinctive purple hue, these tarantulas are more than a vibrant color. They embody the elegance and intrigue of the tarantula world, with a reputation for being captivating and docile, making them perfect for beginners and seasoned enthusiasts alike.
The Purple Earth Tarantula exhibits an exquisite display of purple and blue tones, particularly noticeable in the light, which truly sets it apart in the world of arachnids. These tarantulas are terrestrial dwellers, appreciating a natural environment of deep substrate for burrowing, which can also contribute to their humidity needs. Their captivating color and unique character make them a spellbinding addition to any collection.
Basic Care Information:
Purple Earth Tarantulas are not excessively demanding when it comes to their care. Their enclosure should be a secure tank or plastic box with ventilation, a deep layer of a moisture-retaining substrate like coconut fiber or peat for burrowing, and a shelter for hiding.
These tarantulas thrive in temperatures between 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit and require a relative humidity of around 70-80%. A water dish should be provided for drinking, but do not overfill it, as these tarantulas do not do well in excessively damp conditions.
They are carnivorous, with a diet primarily consisting of small to medium-sized insects. Feeding should occur once a week, adjusting the size and quantity of the food as your tarantula grows.
Always carefully handle your Purple Earth Tarantula, using a soft brush or your hand to guide it gently. They can be skittish and quick to bolt, so managing them in a safe, enclosed area is best to prevent accidental falls.
