    I’ve read that H mac are arboreal but I never see mine hanging at the top of the glass. It’s either hiding behind it’s cork bark half on the substrate, chilling on the substrate, or hanging just above it’s water dish. I’ve consider rehousing it to a vertical enclosure like my A avic but she seems content. Any opinions?

    3 pics of my H mac and the fourth is to show comparisons of the two containers. A avic is second from the right, H mac is top left. As you see the H mac has more surface area but is shorter.

    I am not fond of these for arboreals as they do not have cross ventilation

    I agree. That was another reason why I wanted to change it.

    My H. mac never uses much vertical space. Generally is on the ground, which she has webbed up pretty well.

    I guess she thinks she’s an OBT

    Unless you want to switch for better ventilation everything else seems ok. They like to hide behind stuff like that cork bark leaned against the wall.

    Your H mac is on the ground because the hiding you have provided it is on the bottom, exceptions to ever "rule".
