In a couple days I will be receiving a 1/3-1/2" A. Geniculata sling. This is my third T, but first of this species. Any tips on caring for and housing this particular T?
a 16oz deli cup is perfect. my fav for all terrestrial slings. id use that till shes about 1.5". yes a water bowl is fine, slings can not drown, they float due to their setae (hair) repelling water.Since she's only going to be around 1/2" when she arrives, would a 16oz deli cup work for the time being? And would you use a water bowl for a sling that small?
Yeah I love these guys but you definitely want to keep your fingers out of there. I have a juvie suspect female and she literally tries to eat anything that moves near her...whether it is water going into her water dish or tongs doing maintenance. Mine has never been much of a digger...she's always been out just chilling.As it gets bigger provide a good amount of substrate depth. Mine had a crazy digging stage and made a cool tunnel going from the back of its hide and coming out about 5 or so inches away from the hide.
They are almost always on display and never refuse a meal unless in heavy premolt. This is a good reason to not handle this species unless no other options are present. They think anything that moves near them is food.
What is a good substrate to use for Acanthoscurria geniculata?As it gets bigger provide a good amount of substrate depth. Mine had a crazy digging stage and made a cool tunnel going from the back of its hide and coming out about 5 or so inches away from the hide.
