Great for beginners as they are a little larger in size than some other beginner species and unable to climb smooth surfaces, so hard for them to escape. They exhibit a calm demeanour and are easy to look after. Also have a fascinating trait of cocoon-spinning, which adds an intriguing aspect to their growth and development.
