So you’ve decided a tarantula is the right pet for you. Your next decision would be choosing the right habitat for the pet. While it’s possible to let a tarantula roam around your house freely, it’s not a very good idea. Not only do you risk the chance of losing the pet, but the chances of it getting hurt are far too high. A terrarium is your best bet for keeping your tarantula safe and healthy.
Of course, you should clean the shelter of your pet regularly. Wipe the floor covering and remove the feces scattered around. Also, be sure that you set the temperature inside the shelter correctly. Proper iguana care requires ensuring that the iguana lives comfortably in its shelter, so you should mimic nature. One side of its housing should be cool while the other should be warm to mimic daytime and nighttime temperatures.
The two females are GiGi and Princess. Gigi is the dominant one, has a white stripe at times, and when she is stressed, she displays leopard like spots. Princess has a white stripe that shows a little, and she is shy. Yet, the two sleep near each other at night.

Mix some gravel and charcoal pieces together to form a shallow layer on the bottom of the vessel. I like to buy decorative gravel at a garden center with supplies for terrariums. You might find stones in attractive natural colors, brightly colored crystals, or tiny pebbles that can be layered. Charcoal is a must, and you can either get it at your garden center or any pet store that sells aquariums. Charcoal is a natural fungicide. The layer of gravel mixed with charcoal will help maintain proper drainage as well as keep any odors at bay.
Anole lizards make great pets, so get them off to a good start. Choose a healthy specimen that appears robust and active. Bring them directly home from the pet store and have their terrarium ready to go in advance. Finally, give them time to adapt to their new surroundings and get completely comfortable with their new home.
