Spider care

Before buying a spider, ensure that you have done your research and can be confident that you can raise a happy, healthy spider.

They are relatively easy to look after, don't require much space, and can be a unique and fascinating pet to have. Read through our tips and advice first, and then think about whether you'll still be as committed to spider ownership as you initially thought.
