1st off I have a 1.5" sling I gave him a cardboard tube as a hide which I change every week. For the last 2 weeks she totally webbed the tube up. So I left it in there , I didnt see her at all night or day . What was bothering me is that I put a small cricket in her cage and the cricket roamed free. Yesterday I had enough and tore the tube open . I began to freak bad as I saw what looked to be a dead Green Bottle. Then I saw her , she had no doubt molted. Do Slings of this species need water dishes? What type of enviorment do they need? I have her in a smaller plastic house . Lots of air , on a soil/peat bedding with a small plastic cap as a water dish. I never mist her enclosure , is this correct? I really wanna take GOOD care of her.With this molt she seems to lost alot of the tiger stripes on her but still has no real signs of green or blue colors yet. Oh yeah Ive also noticed if I get near her she flicks massive amounts of hair ! Is this normal ?
