Even expensive TARANTULAs can be so STUBBORN !!

As someone who has encountered my fair share of expensive TARANTULAs, I can attest to just how STUBBORN these creatures can be at times.


Hey there! Today, I want to share an exciting journey with you all. Recently, I decided to rehouse my beloved Megaphobema robustum tarantulas into brand new enclosures. These stunning creatures deserve the best habitats to thrive in. Join me as I walk you through the process of moving these magnificent beings into their new homes.

Getting Ready for the Move

As I prepare to rehouse my Megaphobema robustum tarantulas, I make sure to set up their new enclosures with care and precision. The new setups feature a simple design, with a deep substrate and a pot for added height. This design mimics their natural habitat, ensuring they feel comfortable and secure in their new homes.

Setting Up the Enclosures

  1. Filling water dishes: Before moving the tarantulas, I ensure that their water dishes are filled to provide them with access to fresh water at all times.
  2. Collapse burrows: To prevent the tarantulas from hiding during the transfer, I collapse their burrows carefully but effectively.

The Rehousing Process

Now comes the exciting part – moving the tarantulas into their new enclosures. Armed with tools and a steady hand, I carefully transfer each tarantula to its upgraded home. The Megaphobema robustum species is known for its breathtaking beauty, featuring striking orange and black colors that mesmerize anyone who lays eyes on them.

Dealing with Stubborn Behavior

While these tarantulas are truly captivating, they can also be quite stubborn. In some cases, they may kick hairs when agitated, showcasing their unique personalities. Despite their occasional defiance, I approach the rehousing process with patience and respect for these incredible creatures.

Ensuring Safety and Comfort

Throughout the rehousing process, my top priority is to ensure that the tarantulas are safely and comfortably transferred to their new enclosures. By taking the time to handle them gently and with care, I minimize stress and ensure a smooth transition for these remarkable beings.


Rehousing my Megaphobema robustum tarantulas has been a truly rewarding experience. As I watch them settle into their new homes, I am reminded of the beauty and resilience of these creatures. By providing them with a safe and enriching environment, I hope to see them thrive and flourish in the days to come.
