    I'm just excited about my Gbb enclosures, very happy about how they turned out :)

    Awesome setup. What kind of background is that? Looks like the ones they keep with them but actually natural and cool.

    It's just a piece of corkbark that I cut to fit (roughly) and then hot-glued in there.

    I just rehoused one of my Euathlus sp Red slings, and he has already dumped the moss onto the water dish like always.

    Also this little A. moderatum from an expo got rehoused out of its vial into a small condiment cup. So far it actually uses the hide.

    Just rehoused my unsexed. P. irminia almost-adult. Boy, that was five heart attacks. It didn't go that badly, but she did manage to get on the wall for a brief period. She needed the rehouse, though. The enclosure she came in was completely opaque with one air hole and a little oversized. Nothing like an adrenaline rush before bed~

    Rehoused my subadult p murinus and my subadult c versicolor this week. Both went super smooth and they’ve both begun webbing heavily.

    Waiting for my p miranda to harden up to move her into a new inclosure. Probably pushing 3.5 inches now!

    Technically counts as a rehouse moving my new A. chalcodes out of the deli cup it came in so here she is in her new home.

    And exactly how close is Charles to his ultimate molt? I know this girl... ;)

    He is 4 inches, so I'd guess at least a couple of molts.

    Well I've got a 6-inch young lady arriving next week. So call me Yente from Fiddler on the Roof, but "have I got a girl for you..." You can't start matchmaking too early. :happy:

    After my GBB sling moulted last weekend and doubled (at the very least) in size, a rehousing seemed appropiate. :D

    Before:

    After:

    And yes, it's a 'Ferrero Rocher' box! :D It was originally intended for my little GBB when it first arrived, but back then it was way too big for that tiny little sling. Now I hope it will last a couple of moults. ;)
    The little one already started webbing in the back... we'll see how long it'll take until everything's webbed over.

    @Dannica brought her Female A. avic for a pairing session....Prior I re-housed her into a larger enclosure, more conducive for pairing.

    Pairing went awesome btw.
