    I'm so excited, him indoors has let me get a few more T's.
    I haven't told him everything, but I can't wait till tomorrow.
    I've got an OBT juvie, GBB sling and a Stromatopelma calceata sling coming tomorrow. I fancied adding aome africans to my collection.
    Got some money down on an Ephebopus cyanognathus (blue fang) 2" to collect on Friday.
    Also got home last night to freshly shed B Smithi. the skin was so fresh I got it into a great position without damaging it. Not sure on the sex, think its female.

    Is that tin foil?

    yes it is tin foil.
    it's mould resistant compared to the cork bark I kept putting in.
    Once they're bigger they'll get cork again. They don't seem to object to it!

    tin foil has a layer of slickness to it... I think its a oil of some sort.. might want to look into.. hate to have you lose a good A versi over it.

    surely though, its safe for our food to go onto, there shouldn't be any contaminants on it?
    I've had them on it for about 5 months now.

    id call it fine then... I just remember spraying that stuff when I used to dishwash and oils would come off it.

    Here they are!

    The OBT was very sluggish when I got him out, I even picked him up between my thumb and finger to put him in the tank as he was not moving.
    I hope he will be ok. He moved when I blew on him and has since moved to the top of the tank.
    The GBB is lovely and quite active, the Stromatopelma calceata was also quite mobile.
    Hope you like the pics!
    Going to collect a blue fange tomorrow.

    Your new babes are so cute! My A versi is at the exact same stage. I have live plants in with mine and she webs the leaves all together when she isn't busy dancing from leaf to another.

    Happy feeding and molting!

    If anyone could come up with a valid reason why something we wrap our food in could be unsuitable, then I'll remove it. It was just logical thinking on my part, trying to keep the humidity up and the mould down.
    I've seen people with all sorts of things in enclosures, such as dragon statues and plastic toys, surely tin foil is much safer than that?
    LOL!!{D
