plenty of threads about pokies burrowing as youngsters available via the search engine (points to top right corner of page...small white font in the blue cross-screen bar )Anyone else seen this behavior? Fun to watch, but im wondering if the little guy is unhappy with his, IMO, very cool arboreal set up (Temp/Humidity regulated very carefully). Anything?
Yeah. My P. ornata made a shallow hide under the branch and moss. It just moved some of the top substrate to squeeze in under the moss. I'll try to get a pic up in a bit.By "burrowing" do you mean a channel under its hide? A lot of arboreals do this, as the Lograkor states, "as juvemiles". My P. Regalis does this as well. She is a sub-adult female.
If you mean a full-fledged burrow in the dirt, no, they are not suppose to do that. Care to elaborate or have pictures?
