I actually came to arachnoboard because it was recommended as a reliable source for proper information like this regarding T care other than just googling because in doing so I've come across various different information. Also WHY I stated that this may have been asked before but I haven't figured out how to navigate this site and there is NO HARM in asking. So if this is only for people who know all about them then I'll take my questions elsewhere usually it makes more sense to ask people with experience than to read everything you see online ESPECIALLY when not all information is the same everywhere1. All life needs water.
2. Not all Avics will drink from a dish, OR they will, but later on seemingly "forget" it's still there. Read my link below, come back to this thread with SPECIFIC questions. Don't come to me at least with general questions like "what tips can you give me". No time to type crap you may already know. That's fine for other people, not I.
3. There's no conflict of opinions for Avic husbandry. There is conflict between accurate information and ignorant/stupid information. As a new person, one cannot always know the difference, hence NEVER USE CARE SHEETS.
4. You haven't seen them drink- so what- keep the dish. I haven't seen you drink either
5. Mist- not necessary- but adding water drop wise onto webbing or vines etc so they can DRINK- necessary
6. I keep mine dry for very specific reasons, damp is fine. But damp is a relative term. Most new people go over board and kill all their Avics with moist/stuff cages. Don't be like them.
7. If you chase humidity values YOU WILL kill your T.
They aren't hard to care at all, but they have a narrow range of husbandry, and they aren't forgiving of mistakes like many other species.
Truthfully there's not a beginner/advanced question about Avic husbandry you are going to ask or think about that hasn't already been answered. I use google to search specifically within AB. Learn how to do that, and you will get good answers. Come back here when you READ the info, do the RESEARCH (usually before you get the animals!), and have questions about what you read.
Lol that's what I'm waiting for.... I guess you can say their "forever home" is already on its way to being set up they just need to be big enough to go inside lol just need them to make it that far
