Here’s my enclosures for Selenotypus, Phlogius and C Tropix (Terrestrial/Burrowing species)
I use Coir Peat and Spag Moss, I have pretty basic enclosures but I put a little bit of decor in because they are all in my main living area, I am also currently propagating some pothos for my juvenile and adult enclosures. Still trying to find what I like as far an enclosures/substrate etc in future I would like a bit more elaborate bio active setups for my T’s
If anyone has any concerns about my husbandry please PM me I’m happy to here suggestion :)

Terrestrial Slings in AMAC boxes

One B. Smithii and one T albopilosum. Acrylic boxes are 4” cubes from the Container Store. The blue card stock is to give them a shaded area in addition to the hide.

Gorgeous... A nice vibe, a true piece of nature. I'm a huge fan.

I wanna copy cat the best I can, this is my first terrarium, I don't mind building it from fake materials to host a Mantis, or build it with real stuff and make it work

I'm a Newby, this would be my first.



Would you be so kind to share the *recipe* for one of those please? I'm in awe

This was originally set up for my Singapore Blue. I'm still working on ventilation along with sorting which plants will be staying. I am not starting a second that will be more"locale" oriented.

Once my lights are on, I will post an updated pic with a bit more grow in.

Those are super nice! After looking at them for a bit, I decided it was almost like a "Where's Waldo" puzzle. The attention to detail was impeccable and entertaining too, lol

I don't keep jumpers but have in the past. To me, they are just fun and nomadic. You've given them lots of room and more than plenty enrichment

That's my hope, especially since this was my first time keeping spiders or mantids as pets and I am too nervous to handle them still.
I am actually redoing the enclosures before I get my second set of spiders, I don't have a plan yet but I am sure they'll be like another wheres waldo/eye spy book lol

This should look pretty nice once grown in. The central cork bark has 3 entrances/exits and is open all of the way through. My female Singapore has closed off the front facing one. I have tried a different substrate mix so we'll see how it goes.

Apart from the sand used as the drainage layer in the bigger tanks, and 3 or 4 cheap driftwood pieces, and some decorative substrates bloke black sand, everything used to make them was collected locally for free
