OBT Owner: Mackenzie and Cassandra
Time in enclosure: About 5 months
Humidity: No water dish, but our room is humid, so about moderate
Approx Temp: Usually around 80

We keep ours in an arboreal set up. He's about 2.5"-3". When we first put him in, he built a sort of trapdoor burrow, but abandoned it after his first molt with us. Then he really started to web up a lot.







And a shot from the top

OBT Owner: xsyorra
Time in enclosure: About 1 month, give or take.
Humidity: Bone Dry, lightly misting once a week.
Approx Temp: High 70's to low 80's


This is my OBT's primary retreat entrance.


This is the secondary one. There is a third one in the back behind the second hide, but that's a tunnel-system.


Compare the OBT webbing with one of my GBB slings who have been in their enclosures for only about 3 weeks.

Here are my guys... no one has ever burrowed. Aidan has always built web tunnels, I just LOVE how cute Kubota's little hide is.. and the "middle murinus" (lol) just hangs out, though she started a little webbing in the bottom corner.

Sorry for the crap pictures of the larger two... I am currently losing a battle between me and my camera haha

For all of them...
OBT Owner: Teal
Time in enclosure: Almost 2 months
Humidity: Honestly, I have NO idea. Frequent misting
Approx Temp: Room temp (in the 70s)

OBT #1 - "Aidan", 2.75"

View from the front:


View from the back - That is a hollow log of wood, and his web tunnel is down into it


View from the top, it is solidly webbed:


OBT #2 (no name) almost 2"



OBT #3 "Kubota" 1/2"

The web tunnel goes all the way through, with an exit in the back. There is the obvious round web opening, but also in the lower righthand corner is a "lower" exit

Wow, austen, that looks so cool! And in 5 days time as well..

One of my tiny OBT's always builds a tunnel web at the top of the enclosure so when I take the lid off, it rips it up -____-

Thanks Maitre. I hope mine covers the whole tank. It was in a 4X4X5 Michael's cube with 1" of substrate and completely filled it with webbing but this thread started right after after I switched them so no pics.:wall:

Imagine what this tank will look like in 5 months! Hopefully insanely webbed up. I used to not like T's that web a lot but lately.. it's really, really growing on me.

Yeah right. A 2.5g completely webbed. I hope it does. It really seems like a heavy webber too.

Ha! If you wanna throw em up here, by all means!

I'm going to be rehousing my two in a little bit to see if giving them an arboreal enclosure will make them lean toward arboreal tendencies. When i get around to it i'll post the pics up :)

Oooh, experimenting! Good job! lol

My "medium murinus" has actually changed where she hangs out... now, instead of on the sides or in the web tunnel she was starting to make.. she has make a through burrom underneath the foliage in her enclosure. Scared the hell outta me, because if you just look in... you can't tell there is a spider under there AT ALL LOL I thought she got out somehow or something haha
