#1- One inch Curly Hair was purchased from Travis Jenkins who is rearing  the babies that are offspring of Nicaraguan imported  male and female.

This tarantula is a great burrower and has a good size cave at the bottom of the container as of June 2018.  The substrate excavated was stuffed everywhere, even the air vents which had to be cleaned out frequently.  As of the end of July 2018, the excavating activity has stopped and the spiderling seems content to just maintain the "cave".
