Are you referring to superworms or mealworms? Be wary of petshop advice, its nearly always off. Mealworms and supers can certainly chew on a molting T, if she's not interested in eating right away remove them, don't leave them under her hide with her.Ive put them maggot type bugs in which was highy recommended by the pet shop not crickets as i was told that they can nip her but ive not actually witnessed her eating as her food is always in her cave
You can, but most keepers dont recomend it. I personally dont mind it because I usually mix sand with excavator burrowing clay substrate (1:1) for semi arid and arid species (ex: Chromatopelma, Ceratogyrus, etc.) Also, if you use sand, it is very loose and unstable for burrows. If you want to go with the sand and clay mixture, just be sure to add less water than the recommended amount and dont pack the mixture down as hard since it will harden when it dries. Good luck!Can you use just dessert reptile sand for substrate for a mexican red knee ???????
Desert sand is terrible substrate for a B.hamorii, or pretty much any T for that matter. I have heard of some people using it as an additive to mix in with eco earth or peat moss, even then it's a very slight amount. I would never house a T on pure sand...Can you use just dessert reptile sand for substrate for a mexican red knee ???????
If it is right outside of her burrow it is probably a silk mat to improve her chances of registering prey that passes by.Hi ove just bought a mexican red knee female juvinile she comes out of her cave only at night she turns around lifts her back body up and moves around in circles then gos back in her cave. Can anyone tell me what shes doing or why. Thanks
