Hey can anyone tell me anything about the Cameroon Red Baboon Tarantula? I think i might like one but i really know nothing about them!
With mine, I just pour in enough water periodically to keep the bottom portion of the substrate wet/very moist. The one in a picture was a tiny sling when I got her, so obviously it's been working well so far. As for mold, unfortunately these conditions are very conducive to it, but it hasn't been a real problem so far, perhaps because I keep my gigas on 100% peat. I have got some interesting mushroom growth, but that's about it.Originally posted by Vayu Son
Nice pic joy. Would someone care to elaborate on the correct method of flooding substrate without removing the t/creating conditions conducive to mold.
I had to dig her out of her old tank to move her to a newer, larger one. I figured she'd come out with legs upraised and fangs bared, in which case I'd never have thought of handling her, but she was quite calm and seemed interested in walking around exploring. I think myself that body language is a much more reliable indicator of temperament than speciesOriginally posted by Alonso99
How did you approach to handling that H.Gigas?
Thank you for the compliment! But I refuse to either confirm or deny the pork-rind thingOriginally posted by Vys
I Think you have some supernatural way of feeding them pork rinds from your fingers and mesmerizing them to walk slowly and gently around your hands, bowing and scraping at every which turn [this is 90% compliment and 10%wonder]
