Is this enclosure fine for G. Pulchripes?

    Hi, I'm pretty new to the hobby and this is my first T. is there something wrong with this enclosure? He/she usually stays still in front of the hide and sometimes on the sides... the substrate I use is dried Zoo Med eco earth.

    AgentD006las Arach-how about..NO

    The spider will avoid wet substrate. Over all I see no problems.

    All looks okay to me. Although, what is the hide made out of? Kinda looks like slate which could cause issues if your T decides to climb and falls onto it. But if it's not slate and it's soft then should be fine

    Congratulations! One of the few times I’ve seen a newer keeper post a picture of an enclosure that looks good. @Potatatas concern about the hide is something I thought also, however even if it is slate, if you know it to be secure it ought not be a concern. If you could, or desired to adjust anything, that should be it.

    What @FrDoc said. Also, the height of the enclosure doesn't allow enough of a drop for it to be an issue IMO.

    Looks good to me. As for the hide I don't think that is an issue there isn't enough height for it to fall anyway. What size is the T
