      oh and i forgot to ask, can coco husk harm a T? Because if i fail to find coco fiber anywhere i'll have to use the husk only by itself.

      For a burrowing T, I would do my best to get the Eco Earth. I would worry too much with the course husk, especially as it dries out.

      *Please note that ALL tarantulas have a certain amount of venom. Although most people are not affected, some people may be allergic to the venom, or just more sensitive, making it a dangerous situation. Some species of tarantulas can rub urticating hairs off of their abdomens, which can also cause a reaction, depending on the person. Affects of tarantulas' natural defenses may vary between people. If you have decided you are still going to handle your T's IT IS YOUR RISK.*

      If there's no sharp edges it SHOULD be ok, just make sure the T can't climb and fall in the cage it's in (shouldn't be much higher than 1.5 times her legspan or so). If there's sharp edges I'd find something else.

      It should be okay, if you get the fiber I would mix some in with it and use it up: )

      It appears to just not be ground as finely as other brands. +1 on mixing with something else, eco-earth or sifted/screened sphagnum peat, to even out the consistency.

      I've had bricks of Eco Earth out of the same 3 pack that 'reconstituted' differently. Some bricks poof right up in no time when adding hot water. I've had a couple that I kept adding water to and trying to break apart with my hands for days...
