First of all, please do utilize the ‘search function’ for this simply can be answered by searching.

Second of all, I do not think anyone would answer for all of the species you are asked for, for reason #1, which I mentioned above, and for reason #2, check the following picture, which previously answered by @viper69 for other member.

Thanks
I did a search, but most if not all of them are for T's at the current stage, like slings, juv, subA, what I am researching is for the minimum adult enclosure size, I understand the DLS ratio sizing, but I posted this, so I can start preparing and stocking on appropriate adult size enclosures, I do not want to go too small and have too many, too small enclosures, hope all this makes sense, lol

... I had this week off work. I have the time. :lol:

All recommendations, go bigger if you want, just as previously mentioned, NOT with the substrate to lid height. The bigger you go, the nicer the enclosure might look, but a lot of space will go to waste and will just take up room in your house... Which could be used for more T's ;) Of course, if you can't find enclosures with these measurements, go as close as possible. Size of the specimen may differ according to sex.

A. seemanni - Average size 5 inches (12.7 cm). Enclosure - 9 x 9 x 7 inches (24x24x18 cm)

B. boehemi - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

B. hamorii - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

G. actaeon - Let's say 8 inches for argument's sake (20.32 cm). Enclosure - 16 x 16 x 12 inches (40x40x30 cm)

G. porteri - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

G. pulchra - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

G. pulchripes - Average size 8 inches (20.32 cm). Enclosure - 16 x 16 x 12 inches (40x40x30 cm)

LP - 11 inches (30 cm). Enclosure - 24x24x18 inches (60x60x45 cm)

N. coloratovillosus - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

P. sp. mascara - Average size 8 inches (20.32 cm). Enclosure - 16 x 16 x 12 inches (40x40x30 cm)

P. irminia - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - Arboreal species, ultimately, the height you provide is up to you as long as the enclosure is suited to the T's needs. Floor space should be considered but I'd allow a fair amount for when they come down to hunt/drink.

T. albopilosus - Average size 6 inches (15.24 cm). Enclosure - 12 x 12 x 8 inches (30x30x20 cm)

T. schroederi - verage size 5 inches (12.7 cm). Enclosure - 9 x 9 x 7 inches (24x24x18 cm)

God it's a good job I go back to work on Monday. @BoyFromLA I think I might need to borrow your custom title.

Holy Cow, I really appreciate your effort and help, I need to stop getting babies and start buying their adult enclosures, I have enough for juveniles but I do not have enough for adults, so I have to start investing in the enclosures.

@HeartBum you Rock!!!!!

Again Thanks a lot

I would like to point out that this statement is well overused. People don't realize when they say this that in fact a search as brought some people here in the first place.

Many times I've searched on here and on Google for AB and the search brought me to a thread that then says "use the search function," when in fact that's what I did.

But I would say that most of the things have been answered already, but a deeper search is recommended for the basic questions most people have. But when I search often I still find the "use the search function," answer when it is what I was already doing, which that led me to a specific thread, only to find others saying "search for it" when I just did.
