Another trick that work is to pick three or four B.dubia and start to scream: "Fossoriaaaaals, come out to plaaaay"
No problems. If it's a warmer day, the top of the cone of the lid will fog some right after a misting, but the rest stays clear. And in the case of molding, I have dwarf pillbugs and forest springtails in there. My tarantula has been great about throwing food and waste out of her tunnel, but I've been keeping an eye out for mold in there just in case.
I'm not sure I understand that face lol. But the bandanna is a gift a Christian group sent to me while I was out of the U.S.I swear I love this. Praise the Lord! :-s
awesome cage. would be concerned about vent though..My E. cyanognathus is always visible, whether she is digging and throwing her dirt, sitting at the entrance of her burrow, or unknowingly being peeped by me
What species are you talking about? Well from where I live it rarely gets below 30 degrees celsius. Its usually about 32 at daytime but it may reach the mid 20s when it rains at night.As someone in a dorm with a tarantula: my tarantula is definitely more active when she is actively being fed, and she'll go through visibility/hiding phases depending on the temperature. If it's colder, she'll hide in her hole more. If it's warmer, she's out in the open more. But she does tend to be actively moving and digging during the night, though. I just happen to also be nocturnal and so I'll see her doing things.
Wow thats some really thick webbing. Maybe we could say that fimbriatus isnt much of a pet hole at all? They look gorgeous thoughYou'll love this species, I've 3 juveniles and an AF, heavy webbers of Chilobrachys. AF made shallow burrow as sling, then as she got bigger became terrestrial. Floor webbing is thick, 1/2", and dense silk tunnels around the enclosure perimeter. Out in the open quite often, disturb the enclosure and she'll hide quickly. Very good eater, takes all prey types, juveniles do also and keep to their burrows most of the time. Of the 3 species of Chilobrachys I have, fimbriatus is out most often in daytime. Hours after the light goes out, nearly all can be seen at the burrow opening. On rare occasions on the surface but within a body length of their burrow.
Took a photo of the AF, bolted for cover, but you can see the webbing.
Also a C. andersoni I caught on the surface.
The sp. Kaeng Krachan were in their burrows.
Yeah my man, I can't understand Southern Italians when they speak using their (according to their Region/Area etc) language only, and btw viceversa North to Center/South.I thought you could barely understand southern Italians! Not much conversation involved?
I have an Aphomopelma chalcodes, and I live in a place where the temperature is between 0-20 Fahrenheit (-5ish Celsius) during the winter but in the 80's and 90's Fahrenheit during the summer.What species are you talking about? Well from where I live it rarely gets below 30 degrees celsius. Its usually about 32 at daytime but it may reach the mid 20s when it rains at night.
I assume you use additional heating through winter temps? I can't see them surviving on -5°C....I have an Aphomopelma chalcodes, and I live in a place where the temperature is between 0-20 Fahrenheit (-5ish Celsius) during the winter but in the 80's and 90's Fahrenheit during the summer.
Mine's not a pet hole either. Sits in full view every evening, except on feeding nights. Then she just snatches the food from the entrance and is gone. My E.murinus is the same.Good grief... my E. cyanognathus is doing a terrible job of being a pet hole. She just went out of her way to grab and carry her water bowl (bottle cap) to her burrow and try to shove it inside.
She gave up though, and is now webbing it to the side of her hill.
I'm not looking forward to her reaction when I take it back.
Or maybe I could keep supplying her with bottle caps so she can make a plastic fortress?
