    Keeping red back spiders

    Anyone keep red-back spiders? Because I'm interested in keeping one, what's their care like, enclosure, temp, substrate wise? Is spraying the enclosure a good idea for water? I know they eat crickets flys and that stuff. I know their extremely dangerous so I won't be handling it.
