Tips for Handling Tarantulas

There is always a certain measure of risk that comes with handling tarantulas. So the very first question you should probably ask yourself is why do you want to do it? Most keepers and hobbyists recommend against too much handling of tarantulas – not only do you run the mild risk of being bitten or having urticating hairs flicked at you, you also run the risk of your tarantula escaping, being injured by a fall, or simply experiencing the stress of being handled when it may prefer to simply be left alone.

You may never need to actually handle your tarantula by hand. Even when you are moving your tarantula to a temporary container in order to clean out their cage, this can be done quite efficiently by prodding them with a brush and a cup. Some advocate learning how to handle your tarantula, while others feel it is unsafe and completely unnecessary. Whether you need to or want to, always use caution and safe practices in handling this beautiful but wild and potentially dangerous creature. In all cases, use your best judgment, and if you feel that the tarantula will not be tolerant of being handled, always err on the side of caution. Show More
