    Hello I'm a little new to the hobby I started with a obt sling and recently added a pink toe to my collection I was wandering why he/she won't web is there something I'm doing wrong I mean he/she eats and everything but won't create a home any ideas or opinions why?

    Tank pictures please! It could be she just doesn't feel she has enough strong anchor points. How big is your pink toe? Even if you're doing everything right, it may take a few weeks for it to adjust to a new environment and begin to web.

    How long ago did you rehouse? It might still be in its transitional period.
     
  6. O got it about a week or 2 ago from a local pet store

    Tarantulas usually need a few weeks to settle into their new enclosures, seeing as it's only been in there a week or two I wouldn't be surprised if it's still making itself at home.
     
  8. They also said it had just molted prior to me buying it

    Does it make any difference if it's cage is next to my obts?

    It looks a bit cramped in that enclosure. Avics do appreciate a bit of space. They don't just need 'plants in there' but a kind of tree like structure with a substantial piece of bark or wood placed upright to hang out on and fake leaves surrounding the top of the bark/wood to make a web in between.

    Mine took over a month to start webbing, the enclosure isn't ideal but I've seen much worse.

    How do you do maintenance on KK terrestrial style enclosure when you're using it for arboreal?

    Why not just spend the same money on a proper arboreal enclosure?

    Not related to your question but just to be certain: you do realise that an OBT has a very nasty bite that could send you to the hospital, right? I am asking because you bought your tarantulas from a local pet shop. These shops are not known for giving accurate information to their customers.

    The avic....like boina said, wood is pretty important. And remove that light!!!

    The OBT needs significantly deeper sub, what you have is inadequate.

    I notice my avic doesn't seem to web a lot except right before a molt. When I rehoused mine, it went a while without webbing and then it webbed up a storm and molted shortly afterwards.
