I have 6 H Maculatas around the 3/4" to 1" range. All but one of them prefer to burrow.my H. Maculata has made its self a burrow, do you reckon i could have been sent a Pterinochilus murinus by mistake, as my one is also brownier, than a
Hetroscoda maculate. or is this usual behaviour ?
Not always. I have had 2 adult (males unfortunately) maculatas before. They always had a burrow in the ground. The good news about this is that it is easier to get the lid off to throw food in.Its normal for arboreal juvenile to have burrowing behavior. It change a little as time go.
