I'm new to the forum and just bought a pink toed tarantula! Its in a five gallon tank. The tank is horizontal, not vertical like some. I have a big log diagonal from corner to corner with a fake plant and a hollow log shelter. Is that fine to do or do I have to make the tank vertical? The tarantula seems young. It's not to big like in some pictures. How big do pink toes get? Same size as a rose haired? Does anyone have pics of their enclosures and pink toes? I would love to see some! What is their normal behavior? Mine just sits on the log and that it. It just sits their and isn't happy looking. It's not shriveled or anything but just stays still. Is that normal? Also, I had gotten the log/stick from by backyard tree. Is that bad? I'm freaking out because aren't you supposed to sterilize it?! How? My parents would never let me bake it in our oven! Im still freaked out by it in a way. I'm scared to death! Lol the pet store worker just scooped him up and the pink toe was friendly but I'm still jumpy around it. - let me know if you need pictures!
