S. Cal
I got 3 S. Cals and 3 P. Murinus and this one is the craziest out of the bunch. I’ll be updating their enclosures soon!
What size are they? They look to be a decent size, but both my adult female and juvenile male had black undersides by 3-3.5" DLS.
 
@Jmore Gotcha, I don't think the underside was black just yet at that size. Very cool species, definitely gotta show em some respect. :)
 
@Arachnophoric I’m excited to watch them grow! So far the other 5 have been really calm. This one starts running around it’s enclosure as soon as you touch the cup or even turn the lights in the room on. I’m gonna have to rehouse them soon (because I believe there’s some mold in their enclosures) and I’m trying to decide how I’m gonna pull it off :anxious:
 
@Jmore Mold actually isn't a huge issue if there isn't a crazy bad outbreak. If mold is growing in the enclosure though, you may want to add more ventilation.

Those enclosures would be good ones to rehouse using the bag and cup method, where you place a catch cup in a clear bag and attach the end of the bag to the old enclosure with a rubber band. Then you just poke a small hole for you to fit your paintbrush or straw through to coax the t into the catch cup, and repeat the process into the new enclosure. Makes it a walk in the park to rehouse teleporting OW arboreals, no chance of escape. :)
