: Comprehensive Information on Care, Housing, and Feeding
Terrarium hobbyists interested in acquiring a truly exotic pet as well as life science students will find virtually everything, they need to know about keeping a tarantula in captivity. This book includes detailed information on the natural history and biology of these fascinating creatures, and the care chapter has been completely updated and revised. The book is filled with color photos and scientifically accurate line art, most of which examples are new to this second edition. Since its initial publication, hobbyists have come to consider this book the "Bible of Arachnoculture."
Review "For the keen enthusiast there is one book that is regarded worldwide as the bible of tarantula keeping and that book is The Tarantula Keeper's Guide...The book is in reality a keeper's manual as well as being a very enjoyable read for the enthusiast. It will immediately become your first port of call for reference purposes. It is suitable for beginner through to advanced enthusiasts...I cannot recommend this book too highly. Every tarantula keeper should have a copy in their library. If you only buy one book on tarantulas this should be that book. Run, don't walk to your computer and order a copy now."
