2 shots of my Euoplos turrificus tank now that she's finally made her signature turret entrance. You can finally actually see where she is in the tank

Semi-serious question here. At what point does a "tarantula room" cross the line and become a "tarantula facility" lol? Maybe two or three more shelving units to go still?

Just some super cool shots of one of the enclosures above showing a snapshot of what the setup will look like when the spider finishes it's unique structure. This is my Arbanitis sp. Coramba 1, in the wild they will build a vertical camoflauged tunnel against a plant/tree that in some cases can reach to around 1 and a half feet (45cm) in height. Unlike the photo above, these ones show the spider at the entrance, after only a few days into constructing her tube.

For all the people who don't understand why I go to the lengths I do when making enclosures, this result is why.

My attempt at recreating a bit of Brachypelma smithi's natural habitat. I have a 5" female on the way next week, and I wanted a nice display piece.
