I just recently got 3 new T's....
Ephebopus Cyanognathus
Haplopelma Lividum
Poecilotheria Metallica
I realize all T's are different, but about how long should it take for these to get used to their new enclosures. I think the H. Lividum is getting there, it webbed up a little tunnel and I was able to get it to eat a cricket last night. The other 2 don't seem interested in eating yet.

Some take at least a month. Depends on the individual. You should worry after a few months. Just give them time, they'll get it eventually :D

Less than 35 minutes for the metallica! I had pokies eating and webbing not minutes after they were in their new home!

There is no set time. Just make sure you have the enclosure set up correctly and leave them to it.

I could understand that the individual nature of the T along with factors involving everything from whether the delivery guy went postal on the box, etc. could impact this. The handbook says to give it a week of not bothering them or attempting to feed. Just make sure the water levels are good.

It looks like none of those T's are considered as skiddish. Does the degree of skiddish for the T come in to play on this type of thing? I don't have much to go by at this early stage in my experience, but my G. Pulchripes and E. Campestratus were eating on their second night. It took my A. Versicolor a week. And my new Hapolopus Sp Col. has dug a hole inside the hide and sealed the door.

Congrats to you on the three nice T choices.
