PostSubject: does my tarantula need a water dish ???   8/11/2012, 5:00 pm

my tarantula (medium size rose hair ) was in a ten gallon tank with a hide, water dish, and fake desert plant, but today i moved it into the adult terrestrial tarantula cage from www.tarantulacages.com..... the cage is a little smaller, rite now it just has a hide in there, i didnt put the water dish and fake desert plant back in becuase i wanted the tarantula to have room to walk around and dig.....but is my tarantula going to dehydrate with out the water dish ????? i think it comes from the desert but im not sure, i have the tarantula keepers guide book but i didnt get that far into reading it yet..... when the water dish was in there the tarantula would just dig and fill it with dirt, thats what is going to happen if i put it back in there becuase the cage is a little smaller, or should i put the water dish in anyway ????

Yes, all tarantulas require a water dish......the reasons for this are explained in the book you purchased.

There's a section in the back of the book specifically for G. rosea btw.

It all comes down really to the "personality" of the T. My auratum does it all the time, but my Grammostolas have never done it.

Yes keep a water dish in there. I have an obt that I have a constant battle with. He always webs up the dish or moves it across the enclosure,even battles me when I refill it by pulling the watering tube for a game of tug of war. The constant battles are all worthwhile when I saw him drinking. cheers
