Trust me on the sub. I've raised a lot of Avic slings, they don't need that much. Decreasing the sub level, INCREASES the amount of vertical height they have.There's an angle I didn't take a picture of, but that cork bark pretty much goes from bottom to top. You may be right on the substrate though...the last enclosure I had this little guy in was webbed up a lot around a small hole in a cork bark I drilled for him. Pretty much stayed there unless I offered food.
Yes, its referred as "the jack-in-the -box effect ". A problem with top opening enclosures, 16&32 oz. deli containers, used by many keepers.I will also add that I housed my avic in an almost identical enclosure and he/she webbed along the top and onto the opening portion of the lid. As mentioned elsewhere this caused the webbing to be torn anytime I needed to open the enclosure. That's also where the sling hid out, so over the side it would go whenever the lid was opened.
