Hello All!

2cm B. Boehmei

I have question relating to heating them... In the winter months it goes below 0 degrees Celsius where I stay.

I currently have my Ts set up next to a heatpad. Here is the picture:

Do you think this will be sufficient?

Sorry about the image sizes. I will resize them smaller next time before uploading.

Hi there! Welcome to tarantula keeping :)
Your heating pad set up should be fine as long as you take care to not overheat your new fuzzy buttons! watch the ambient temps and as long as they dont get too hot you should be ok
Also consider only heating them overnight and on VERY cold days, I lived in PTA for 10 years and usually the ambient day time temps in my 'animal room' (north facing) was sufficient to not have to heat my snakes and bugs, but I had to keep everyone warm at night.

Good luck and enjoy your little bundles of fluff!

Some people are like a slinky spring, they make you smile when you push them down a flight of stairs!

Thanks Bernice!

I will switch off the heatmat during the day when I leave for work.

I hope they are fine when I get home and I didnt cook them today. :O

These hairballs facinate me so much!
