A really small flower pot half buried should do.

Either that or a small half log hide, it that's too big you could always cut it to the correct size.

I used some pottery, of some kind, which I bought at a gardening centre, and got the hamer out. Smashed it and made the pieces into a hide Smile

the set up is pretty basic

its a pastic kritter keeper

with dirt filling most of it so the tarantula cant climb and get hurt falling

and there is a round piece of cork bark in there to hide

I don't have a water dish cuase the tarantula isn't that big yet

I might be able to get a picture but the tarantula and the set up but the tarantula is on lid right now so I don't wanna open it to disturb it

its been hanging out up in the corner of the lid
