OK, So it appears I have my first T-tastrapophe tonight. Apparently some point in the evening, my C. fasciatum's cork bark fell over onto it (note to self - glue in place for the future) while It was burrowed. I hadn't seen it in a few days, which is no biggie, it likes to hide normally. It's on very shallow substrate, about an inch or so, and guessing from mounds that it made, and it's size, the cork bark had to land right on it. I see no visible burrow entrances, and I'm 99% sure it hasn't escaped. Usually I see it atleast once or twice a day, even though it is a burrower for the most part. I have uprighted the cork bark, and still no tigerrump. Cricket has been there since the morning, and is still living it up. Any suggestions?

If you are that worried about it there can be no harm in digging it up.

Good advice, Jacen.

I lifted the bark up, and with it came the top half of the substrate. Between the webbed, and non-webbed substrate, sat a very pissed off tigerrump, whose home I have unnecessarily wrecked. I put the 'carpet' back down, but it still has no exit. I'm assuming it'll find a way out when it feels like it.

Bill,
As for mine, I'm double paranoid, since last summer. My chalcodes was always buried. Well, mw thinking it was ok, I left it be. When I did dig it up, a cricket had killed it. So, my poor tiger got me digging it up nearly non-stop. After a week, it had gotten to the point of just sitting there, waiting for me to cover it back up.
