That's the cage I currently have him (or her) in, but ever since I put the hideaway inside, it's been either on the side of the wall like in the picture above, or else it's higher up, clinging to the wall... it doesn't seem to step down much at all except to poop. :? I'm pretty sure it isn't the substrate, I used coconut husk and it was fine walking on it when it was first put in it- it makes me wonder, is it possibly afraid of the hideaway? I'm not sure if that's a silly question or not. :8o I just figure to ask since it doesn't climb the wall near the hideaway, only to the left of the cage, opposite of the hideaway. It's a pretty basic cage till I try my hand with acrylic glass, but from what I've read on here and in the Tarantula Keeper's Guide, simple is good. So any thoughts?
Oh! It was a wild caught one... which I know no tarantula is "domesticated," however is it possible since it was used to wandering wherever outside, being in a cage does technically feel "different" to it at all?
