Dropped tarantula carpet 3 feet.
Their cage should be approximately 3 4 times their legspan so if you have a 3 inch tarantula something in the 9 12 inch range is completely adequate.

Tell me who dropped it mike or him.
Pet tarantulas don t require much space so please don t make the mistake of providing a large enclosure.
Remove your tarantula from its terrarium and place it in a secure habitat so that it can t escape.
Arboreals are better at surviving it though but will still probably kill them.

He isnt his normal self hes just sitting in his cage and wont move when poked or prodded or he is reluctant to move i called some vet hospitals and they said he may be stunned or dazed from the fall and i should give him 8 12 hours.
