Hi

Tomorrow I'm aquiring two 1 " slings. Ornithoctonus sp."Koh samui". I am having a terrible time finding specifics on them. Can anyone please tell me how I should keep them? Heat, humidity, how a nice enclosure is setup for one. etc. Thanks

Keep them exactly the same as Haplopelma or other burrowing members of the subfamily Ornithoctoninae.(So deep substate kept on the moist side!)
This species does not get very large and males tend to mature around the 2" size!
Hope that helps!

Thank you. That does help. I had no idea they are that small. They are really awesome looking though. I'll give them an enclosure like my two Cobalts, but smaller.

changed mind

I changed my mind on getting these.... I got an A Urticans and a new OBT sling instead.

Chris...... I want to buy a couple of slings from you when they are ready!!!!
