I'm Les 

 

In Oxfordshire, I will have a year old Hermann in about 2 months time.

I have experience with a spur-thigh and just doing some research to see what differences there are in keeping the two (doesn't seem much) so far.

As a family ( I have 5 daughters), we have a varied array of animals from chickens and rabbits and guinea pigs to snakes geckos and tarantulas.

Hi Les, welcome to the forum. You are right that care is the same for both species, but behaviour is different, also they both carry different pathogens, so they should never be kept together. Providing they are kept separately, they will be fine under the same regime. Hope this helps :)

Hi Les welcome to the forum. :) 

Sounds like your kept busy with all these animals, you'll love the little Hermann when he /she arrives, I don't know how your daughters can keep tarantulas :ohmy:
