Here is the definitive word on tarantulas for collectors of exotic pets, and for life science students specializing in arachnids (spiders and their relatives). The book opens with a detailed description of the tarantula's origins, anatomy, and physiology. Comprehensive information on care, housing, and feeding is provided for all who want to keep one or more tarantulas as pets or for scientific research. And for those who prefer to do it themselves, there is even advice on where and how to capture a tarantula in the wild! Extensive tables classify tarantulas according to classes, orders, families, and subfamilies. Still another table outlines measures one should take in the event of a tarantula bite--though in many cases a bite is little more than a passing annoyance. Dozens of color photos and scientifically accurate drawings illustrate virtually everything the reader needs to know about these exotic creatures.

Authors Stanley and Marguerite Schultz tell exotic pet hobbyists and life science students everything they need to know about keeping a tarantula in captivity. They present detailed information on the natural history and biology of these fascinating creatures, supplementing their text with a wealth of photos and illustrations. The detailed chapter on the care of tarantulas has been revised and updated, making it more comprehensive than ever. Since this book's initial publication, hobbyists have come to consider The Tarantula Keeper's Guide the "Bible of Arachnoculture."
"For the keen enthusiast there is one book that is regarded world wide as the bible of tarantula keeping and that book is The Tarantula Keeper's Guide...The book is in reality a keeper's manual as well as being a very enjoyable read for the enthusiast. It will immediately become your first port of call for reference purposes. It is suitable for beginner through to advanced enthusiasts...I cannot recommend this book too highly. Every tarantula keeper should have a copy in their library. If you only buy one book on tarantulas this should be that book. Run, don't walk to your computer and order a copy now."
