    Very calm compared to trying to rehouse my C lividus. This guy just calmly walked to this temporary enclosure from the shipping vial. With a few nudges from a small paint brush. It’s on a cricket in this photo. I’d say it’s close to 1 3/4 inches in DLS. About half the size of my B. Hamorii sling that is over 2 1/2 inches DLS. Got this one from Jamie’s Ts. I also got an A geniculata, but it’s a tiny 1/3 of inch sling. Very hard to photograph with an iPhone camera.

    Nice! Hope you enjoy your new T and make sure to take some photos of it as it grows! Maybe that'll convince me into thinking that arboreals aren't so bad :troll:

    Maybe bc there is glare in the pic so I can’t tell but do you have something for it to web up against that’s a little vertical? Like fake leaves on a plastic vine or a piece of cork bark?

    There is some bark right above it. It took the cricket to the ground after catching it. This is only a temporary enclosure until I get the vertical Amac container from the container store tomorrow. Was hoping it would arrive at the same time but it didn’t.

    Pro tip: If you want a step up from the AMAC boxes, I suggest going to your nearest Hobby Lobby and buying a $6 (they always have a 40% off coupon) model car display case.

    Aww I love baby pokies! They're just so cute with their miniature sized markings and always interesting behavior.
