How deep should the coconut husk substrate be for a Honduran curlyhair? Our's loves to burrow and 3 inches doesn't seem to be enough. :) Thanks!

Depends how big your specimen is.

What size? Do you have photos of setup?

It should have much more substrate in the enclosure anyway to prevent injury/death from a fall.

You want to fill it untill there is only 1.5x the legspan of your T from the substrate to the lid of enclosure.

Once you do that it will be safer... and your little JCB can dig to his heart content. :)

When the abdomen is large like yours is it makes a fall even more risky. They are fragile. Terrestrial Ts like to climb sometimes and if fall can result in death.
