Hey, new poster (and long time lurker) here. I've been eyeing Hogna schmitzi for a long time and I just saw that Spidersworld.EU carries a few slings for a very reasonable price. I cannot find any info om them, besides that they are from Madeira? Anyone got anything?
Keep them more dry on sand /soil mixed with sand. The don't dig/burrow unless they make an eggsac

I keep 2 H Schmitzi and both have been observed to burrow and stay there for undefined periods. They usually go in there and hide out to molt, but I have also seen them go in there after being well fed and wanting to be left alone.
They clearly enjoy to burrow, and creates a nice web bubble underground, and even hangs upside down in there.
Growth rate is extremely fast, one of my < 0.25" sling has grown to about ~1.5" (or bigger) and showing some adult colors already in less than 3 months.

My juvenile made a burrow/hide. I call it a sub bubble. Has made it larger with each moult. Moults in the sub bubble and shelters in it too.
