good find as hide for both tarantula. problem is how will it fit the enclosure. actually not how to fit because it really need some trimming. the tools for trimming is the problem.

i would imagine that any wood cutting/trimming tool would be fine. i used a wood saw to trim the driftwood piece for my A.Avic's enclosure

I wish I could find wood that looked that good in my area. I agree a saw would be perfect.

Ummmmhhhh????
Wood branch.
Wood.
Cut wood with scissors?? NO NO.
Cut wood with a knife, no no that's not right.
Cut wood with a razor blade, no no that will never work.

OH YeAh!! Cut wood with a wood saw!!!! Woohoo!

This is why we are one step ahead of Chimps!

Now about that Theory of Relativity.....

It is a beautiful piece of wood. Just cut it in a size that will fit into your T's enclosures, and then move it so they can hide under or behind it.

shoot, i'd cut it up into several pieces so i could accomodate a few more arboreals. you could easily enlarge your collection with several smaller sections off that large piece.

Indeed, a beautiful find!!!

Was it purchased in a pet store? If not, should one freeze it for some time to prevent any parasites??? Or would you bake it?

Just curious :?

Great find! It looks good, did you find it outside or at a petstore? I find all my decor outside. It looks much more natural.

Cut it. Boil it for at least 15 minutes. Boiling is the only way that is guaranteed to kill everything.

found it on a local garden supply. they export thse kinds of wood for landscaping. that one is consider a reject, so i can get as many as i want :D

i dont usually buy from a pet store, since they usually have faked wood.
