Neoholothele Incei Gold & Olive - Trinidad Olive Tarantula


Neoholothele Incei: Gold and Olive Morphs - A Communal Delight

Introduction: Meet the Neoholothele incei, a stunning tarantula species known for its two beautiful morphs: Gold and Olive. These creatures are a marvel in the world of tarantulas, not just for their striking colors but also for their unique communal nature. I've had immense success raising them together, and I'm excited to share these beauties with you. Whether you're drawn to the radiant Gold or the serene Olive morph, or wish to experience the harmony of both, the Neoholothele incei offers a spectacular view into the communal life of tarantulas. Check out my communal setup and their fascinating interaction in this YouTube video 

Care Details:

  • Temperature: Ideal range is 75 to 85°F (24 to 29°C). They thrive in warmer environments, encouraging more frequent eating, faster growth, and quicker molting.
  • Humidity: Specific humidity requirement for Neoholothele incei is around 70-80%. Remember, water dishes are not necessary, but they pose no harm if used. I personally do not use them.
  • Housing: As a terrestrial species, babies thrive in a 1 oz to 4oz deli container with needle-made ventilation. Remember, free containers are available at checkout upon request. Larger tarantulas need an enclosure 2 to 3 times their size, allowing some flexibility.

Diet: I feed them a variety of crickets and cockroaches, including Dubia, Red-runner, Lobster, and Madagascar hissing roaches. For the babies, smaller prey like baby crickets and baby roaches are perfect. If you can only access one type of prey, that's absolutely fine. In cases where prey is too large, simply crush the head and leave it in the enclosure; your Neoholothele incei will handle the rest. Always remove uneaten food to prevent mold. And for an occasional treat, a pinky or hopper mouse is a nice variety, but remember not to overdo it.

Safety Disclaimer: Experiencing a tarantula bite is extremely rare, and there have been no recorded fatalities due to a tarantula bite. The venom potency varies, with Old World tarantulas generally having stronger venom than New World counterparts. It's crucial to approach tarantulas with respect and understanding. In the unlikely event of a bite, stay calm; discomfort is usually superficial. However, more potent venom can cause symptoms lasting up to a week. Please note that I cannot assume responsibility for bites. Handle tarantulas responsibly, prioritizing your safety and the tarantula's well-being. In my 11 years of experience, I've been bitten once, with symptoms subsiding after a week.
