Well....since this sounds like a terrible idea to me i figure i would at least ask first before anyone else flames me for my idea.
Be it that he lives in the same local as the GBB couldnt he in theory make a trip to the dry desert area of Venezuela collect some of the local soil, take it home, bake it all to hell and use that? :?
right, i understand that. yes they are from the Paraguana peninsula, and yes Venezuela is a big area so the chance of him living near there is slim. But, would a dry scrub land area in his neck of the woods provide him with a similar substrate needed to house his T? being that he wants to do it cheap and efficient?They are native from around Los Medanos de Coro, if im not mistaken.
Thats in the Estado Falcon, around the Peninsula de Paraguana.
Which means, if this guy lives in Caracas, for example, thats a long arse trip .
Hey erguayabero pana, como estas? Me encanta tu pais
I personally know that in Venezuela there are thousands of pet stores of all kinds.right, i understand that. yes they are from the Paraguana peninsula, and yes Venezuela is a big area so the chance of him living near there is slim.

I don't know that i would personally use that sand unless you really heat it up to clean it the easier alternative is just a Brick of ECO-Earth if it's available near youin venezuela is forbidden sell tarantulas an another animals like iguanas!! so in the pet stores you only can find dogs, cats and fishes!! the medanos of coro are like a desert, and near my city is my farm and in my farm is a river and the sand of the river when is drained is like desert sand, i thought to put some rocks and woods to make her environment!! note: falcon is almost 10 ours from where i live!!
No questions are stupid, friend.1 more question is stupid i guess: how i cook the substrate
I haven't got a clue about scorpions...never really been interested in scorps :8o. I've certainly read of the booklung issue and also the tendency of fine sand to clump around the Ts mouthparts causing a problem with feeding. I just wish I could remember where I read it :wall:.Don't scorpions have booklungs too? I know I've seen them living on sand.
