lol thats a good one im kidding i just want some advice.
I tend to keep them without any added humidity other than access to a water bowl (a light spray every fortnight wont hurt) keep them warm, about 26-30°C plenty of ventilation and they're good to go :)

That's the best way to do it, read up on everything properly before you buy it :)

I have both of these Ts. They are both hardy Ts and eat like crazy. But not the friendliest LOL.

Pelinobius muticus and also the Lasiodora parahybana.
Pterinochilus murinus :D

Dry dry dry is the key with these. I mist both my P. murinus once a week, & just mist towards one of their tunnel entrances. The rest of the enclosure I leave dry. I started out with giving them bottle caps with water, but one kept filling it with substrate & the other webbed his so far down I didn't even bother attempting to retrieve it.

LOL ive noticed that one is high defensive while the other is mildly defensive. Im more worried about those hairs then the Baboon's highly defensive nature. LOL

Nope. He's referring to King Baboon, Pelinobius muticus.
