Hello everyone, I just ordered my first GBB 1". This will be my first smaller T so I have been preparing for her arrival.

Is there any advice you all could offer?
Thanks!

Keep it dry! Give anchor points and water dish. Sit back and watch it web! And read this whole thread if you haven’t yet!

People have posted a lot of useful information to this thread. But generally, dry substrate, nicely ventilated enclosure and a water dish. Make sure that the enclosure has attachment points for webbing, and I do include a hide to get them started.

Pandora finally started webbing up her enclosure a week after she was rehoused. I'm absolutely fascinated by her and have never watched something like this before. She's hypotic. :astonished:
Also, no issues with itchiness/allergies from hair kicking now she's in an enclosure with ventilation only on the back half. I'm so relieved because I've totally fallen for her.
When we rehoused her the first touch on the butt with a paintbrush made her leap two inches in the air :eek:

Thanks! Just finished reading this entire thread as well. I'll be setting up the enclosure within the next day since she will be here tuesday. I'll post pictures when I get her settled.
