Even if you add water drops to the web I'd still provide a water bowl of some sort. I've seen almost all of my Ts drinking from their dishes at some point regardless of their size. Dehydration can quickly become a big problem for Ts if they can't get water when they need it.You guys are so lucky, i havent seen my A.metallica juvie drink water from the droplets i place on its webbings.it worries me since i live in a much drier area than its natural habitat, plus,i havent given it any food for 2 weeks now(i have no choice,it has a big tummy already)
I give mine a deep enough dish that it keeps water in it at least a few days. If it's so shallow that it doesn't keep water that long I trade it out. The ones I use for my Avics/arboreal Ts are usually on the ground and they have no problem finding them. I don't see them drink often but I do see where the leave dirt foot prints in the water dishes. That lets me know they were down by the water and would drink if they needed.Do you guys got any idea how Ts even detect their water source(the water dish)? Cuz i dont,and i could really use some info. .
most if my arboreal slings, whom i dont see drinking any droplets of water i placed on their webbings, really worries me cuz its really hot in my area right now which is very different from their natural habitat.i provided a small water dish,a centimeter in diameter at the bottom of the enclosure,but given how high they are from the dish and how hot it is,the water,which is in small amount only,might've already evaporated before they even know there is water there.
