An OBT you say? Well you better find it if you have cats, dogs, other pets, or small children. Good luck.

They usually turn up in a bed once they get larger.

Sorry to hear that...my obt has been in the same deli cup ever since I got it for that same reason. You have to really be careful with these especially as a sling.

My 1" sling is still on the run. I think it slipped in a crack between the floor and baseboard. I scattered egg cartons around and I look under them twice a day.

You might want to check your modem or heater or heat pad. Wherever there is heat in your room or house.

Luckily it's winter so you can more easily entice him to be near heat. I think this is your best bet. Give us an update soon buddy! I love OBT's btw.

Sucks to be you... Both for the reason you lost a T, and the fact you have an Orange Bitey Thing roamin your halls late at night, snatchin yo people up! Nuhmmm nuhmmms!!! {D

Good luck though!

ummm, just a little bit of advice... do not underestimate the speed of any of your tarantulas, especially with unexpected disturbances. thats how i ended up chasing my B. vagans around a counter for thirty minutes, and tearing apart my stove looking for a still MIA 2" G. pulchripes.

every single one gets 100% attention now when the enclosure opens, whether it be pokie, brachy, etc.
