Nope never had one take off out of the tub. Their little feet can't grab anything on the smooth surface of the tub........ And plug the drain I forgot to say that. I did back in the day have a little guy shimmy down the hole and stay there for a while before coming out when I turned the lights off. I learned my lesson.wow, thanks for the advice!! i had the same question cause i need to rehouse my H. lividum soon!! haha, so they FOR SURE can't climb the sides of a tub? you know, i don't want to find out the hard way!!!
I had my G. rosea out today I decided to test to see if it could climb in a vinyl tub. it stayed in one corner for like en mintues trying to climb and never made it an inch..On the subject of bathtubs; It may make a difference whether you have an old fashioned porcelain tub or new-school vinyl tub. I haven't tried this method, i change my spideys out in a large plastic storage container (wal-mart). Can someone who's used this method say for sure if they can/can't climb new vinyl tubs? I'd imagine that porcelain would be pretty slippery tho'.
Also, anything to worry about regarding soap/detergents present in the tub?
