We've all experienced it: You're on social media, and you see pics from a keeper who is not practicing correct husbandry with his spiders. Maybe it's the old sponge in the water dish or an arboreal species in a terrestrial enclosure. Or, it might be a moisture dependent species kept too dry or a death trap enclosure filled with sharp decorations. Whatever the case, you want to offer advice, but you don't want to come across as a know-it-all. In this episode, we'll discuss some tips for offering unsolicited tarantula advice in a way that doesn't offend.
