New DreamCo terrestrial 16x10x6in. Picked up 3 on sale.Just got them yesterday.They are backed up because they also do plex screens for retail stores during the pandemic.
Normally 6 to 8 weeks out,but now 10 to 12 weeks out. These have the 1/4 in plexi vs the 1/8 in.Laser drilled vents.Will be rehousing my T.blondi and A.chalcodes.

This enclosure is for an adult A metallica female. The enclosure itself is from Tarantula Cages, not sure if they're even still in business. Size is 8x8x16. Wanted to make a display quality enclosure since she's my first adult.

My dad and I just got into the hobby, and drilled our own vents in boxes we found at local art store, all drilled with 5/32 bits (time and lots of patience).

Next is our terrestrial vivraium with a medium box 2-5/16"² x 6-3/16" still 90 holes on 4-sides and top for our H.Gigas (Red Baboon).

Thought I'd share pics of some acrylic enclosures I just built. These are 8" x 15", sized to make the most efficient use of my shelf. I am currently finishing up 3 more same style enclosures sized 11" x 15". All are 12" tall to give enough soil depth for burrows and proper "soil bioactivity".

Just posting my setup. Nothing fancy, but looks nice. And no, I never leave those LEDs for more than a couple minutes.

Details are as followed :

Top Left : Maintenance tools
Middle Left : Music collection : Mostly albums with Ronnie James Dio (RIP), some various Sabbath releases with the other 4 singers, some Priest and a couple of video game soundtracks.
Lower Left : Various books about Ts, Dio or Final Fantasy III, Spider-related movies and various metal concert DVDs.
Upper Right : G. porteri and T. albopilosus.
Lower Right : B. boehmei and B. hamorii.

Not bad, huh ? ;)

Work in progress. This will be for my C. cyaneopubescens when it's finished. Not much left to add. Just a few smaller sticks and a water dish (which I will re-use from her current enclosure), and some dried leaves. Don't want to overload it. Size of terrarium: W 50cm, D 35 cm, H 30 cm. Soil and moss from a nearby beech forest (as are the dried leaves), completley dried. Model is a WW I Fokker D-VIII by COBI (Polish "Lego" - has a lot of awesome kits). Let's see how that scene looks in a few months.

Waiting for her to molt before I rehouse. She's due pretty soon, I expect.

My first terrarium build from scratch, for a Heterometrus cyaneus. I used some old glass panels and went crazy with the dimensions 40x32x32 cm IMG_20210308_201957.jpg IMG_20210308_202031.jpg

Found a few exo terra 8x8x12 brand new on the cheap. Decided to try my hand at drilling glass. This is still missing a few items, but I'd appreciate any input. 20210314_113436.jpg 20210314_113447.jpg
