Id love to see/read what types of enclosures people use for fossorial T's...adults in particular.

I use plastic shoe containers with self drilled holes. They are literally perfect for my tarantulas, especially fossorials.

Darn, I couldn’t figure out if it was that one or not because of the orange markers on the feet
Man, you have to start looking at more T pics to confuse those two from those pics. Consider yourself on notice, and receiving 1 demerit point.

In his defense they are both...black. They're also both tarantulas so really not sure how you could possibly tell the difference. Not everyone has the fine tuned observational skills you acquired through decades of experience of Where's Waldo practice.

Firstly, I was joking, I thought that was obvious with the garbage I was typing. Secondly, how to tell the difference, easily. Irminia do not have orange on the lateral sides of their legs, also the orange on irminia are lightning like bolts of orange, located dorsally.

If that was an irminia, instead of orange on the side of that leg in the foreground, one would see a nice orange bolt. I've never played Where's Waldo, and irninia are very distinct looking. Saying they are both tarantulas is not a reason on this one.

Now, if one was comparing certain species out of Brachypelma, or even better Avics, I could see how ID issues would arise, but not here. They are not remotely similar other than being arachnids.

How did you get the obnoxious sticker off the side.
