    Yeah you are right, kezy said that, not you, but what you are saying here strikes me.
    If you honestly believe that a GBB has NO humidity requirements, then you can never ever water your GBB or baboon aside from having a water dish at any stage ever

    Yes, this is 100% correct (aside from the smallest slings).

    Supplying water to drink is not in any way shape of form related to humidity levels...heck I leave a dish for my dog for the same reasons...so it can drink...not for elevated humidity.

    You should read my post, i acknowledged you didnt say that, im referring to something entirely different here. Tell me, do you ever water your baboons or gbbs, aside from having a water dish, ever?

    This thread continues to entertain and still is not even close to what I expected when I clicked on it. Just for fun I'll leave this picture here:

    Being quite a newbie I'm always worried with my slings if they don't have some kind of little bottle top with a wee bit of water in , because what one person may think is enough water , may not be enough !

    Hey @SchubertHelm, was just wondering how things turned out? I recently also got a GBB sling and she (hopefully) also likes to hang out at the top. Gave plenty of room to build webbing, anchors, etc, so not really worried about the setup.. but just wondered if yours has filled out the rest of its enclosure over time and doesn't hang out at the top as much? Thanks! :D
     
  12. Hope you're loving yours as much as I love mine. Definitely one of my favourite new worlds now. My GBB sling must have settled in because its cup is a matrix of webbing. Sometimes I find it inside the web hut it's made, usually after it catches prey, tho most of the time it sits on top of the web. image.jpg

    Great to hear! We are loving ours as well, they are amazing webbers! Reassuring to see your progression as our sling is very similar in size at the moment :D

  14. They are quite beautiful aren't they? I bought this species because of the colouring the adults have not aware at all of how striking the slings are. I imagine you're having the same trouble as me deciding which you like more. I'm happy I got it at this size because the markings on the carapace are clearly visible which I don't think they would have been had it been a few molts smaller. Glad we are both enjoying our new additions.

    They are! Getting them as a sling is the only way to go! The color of slings is amazing, but no picture or description will give it the right justice until you see it for yourself. Glad you're sling is good! Ts continue to amaze me :D
