Spider Terrarium: Frequently asked questions

What types of Spider Terrarium are there and what determines a good product?

There are two main types of spider terrariums; the glass aquarium and the plastic box. The differences between these two options is that a glass tank will be easier to clean, but it can break easily if dropped or knocked over. A plastic container is less likely to break, but may not look as nice in your home. It also won’t hold humidity very well so you need to make sure there are holes for ventilation on top of the lid and bottom of the base (if applicable).

A good Spider Terrarium is one that has a large enough space for the spider to move around and hunt. It should have plenty of hiding places, but not so many as to make it impossible for you to find your pet when needed. The terrarium should be secure from other pets in your home (cats or dogs) who may want to eat them.

Who should use a Spider Terrarium?

Anyone who has a small to medium sized spider or tarantula. The Spider Terrarium is perfect for Tarantulas, Wolf Spiders, Jumping Spiders and other smaller spiders.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Spider Terrarium?

The first thing you should consider is the size of your spider. If it's a large species, then you'll need to get an appropriately sized terrarium for it. Also make sure that there are no gaps in the lid or sides where they could escape from and also check that all air holes have covers on them as some spiders will try to climb up through these if given half a chance.

There are a few things to look out for when comparing Spider Terrariums. The first is the size of the terrarium, as you need it to be big enough for your spider and its web. You also want one that has good ventilation so air can circulate through it easily, which will help keep humidity levels stable in there. Lastly, make sure that any glass used in the construction of this habitat is UV-resistant because spiders can get sunburned just like humans do.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Spider Terrarium?


The Spider Terrarium is a great way to provide your pet with an environment that closely resembles its natural habitat. A spider terrarium will allow you to observe the behavior of your pet in a safe and secure environment, while providing it with plenty of room for exercise and exploration.


The main disadvantage of a Spider Terrarium is that it can be difficult to keep the humidity high enough for your tarantulas. You will need to spray them regularly, and you may also want to consider using an additional water dish in their terrarium. Another potential problem with this type of enclosure is temperature control; if you live somewhere very hot or cold, then it might not be possible for you to maintain ideal temperatures inside your spider’s home. Finally, some people have reported problems with mold developing on these types of enclosures over time – so make sure that yours has plenty of ventilation.
