Hey folks, what in your opinion is the best way to transfer obligate burrowers? The spider in question is a 2 inch C. fimbriatus that is in a medium sized vial right now. It made a 3 burrow chamber in the vial it was in, which is almost packed to the top with substrate. I am putting into a small kritter keeper, with substrate to about 3/4ths or the way up (roughly 3.5 inches or so) My original plan was to turn the vial upside down, and let t crawl out into the new moist sphagnum peat moss that's in the new container. However, it seems to utterly refuse to leave the vial. Any suggestions, or should I go with my current plan and just be more patient?
