• New Classifieds - Open Beta

    The New Classifieds have entered Open Beta status and are now viewable to all registered users.

    Our New Classifieds can be reached by clicking "Classifieds" in the forum toolbar or menu. Any ads posted in the New Classifieds should be considered "real ads" and must follow our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules. Ads that do not meet our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules will be deleted, and warnings, without points, will be issued. While our current Classifieds forums will remain viewable during the Open Beta period, and current ads posted there can be bumped, new ads must be posted in our New Classifieds so you can familiarize yourself with the new format. The Classifieds forums will be closed once the Open Beta period ends.

    A tutorial on how to use the New Classifieds has been created and can be found here.

Odd I. mira
This I. mira has easily been the oddest T in terms of behavior that I have in my collection. Despite being offered ample substrate, it has never fully taken to the signature trap door life the species is known for. Here it is, taking a drink after I added more water to its substrate.
That is odd indeed. Captivity and specimens vary, who knows why it isn't doing the trap door.
@viper69 It's made a burrow on a few occasions, but has abandoned them every time without fail. Currently, it has a little dugout on the one side of the enclosure and has made a web-cave of sorts. I'm going to let it molt once more, and if it doesn't molt out into a MM (still not sure on the sex) I'm going to rehouse it on a different substrate and see if that may be the issue. I can't really think of anything else at this point, unless I just have a truly broken mira. :confused:
@viper69 I'll have to try that then. I think that's actually what I had it on originally, but I used something different the last rehouse. I'll just assume that I have an odd individual. :rofl:
