I received a freebe baby h carassipes with a order I placed.
Have found very little to no information on them other than several pictures.
Does anyone own one and be willing to give me any information?

Thanks,

George

I imagine you mean H. crassipes. The search function works best with correct spelling. I think you can keep them similarly to H. gigas and be fine. They are burrowers and I think they're fine with dryish substrate as long as they have access to water. As slings, have the substrate a bit moist until its large enough for a water dish. If they're like H. gigas, they're large, up to 8" or so. Being African Ts, they can be defensive and have potent venom so respect it.
