there is a photo I am using the plastic cups I guess that will do. I had the intention of putting more things but my t was inside the terrarium because I didn't want to take it out so as not to stress her. luckily I put the hiding places very slowly and he didn't get angry or scaredGreat! May I see a picture of what you're using? Also if it doesn't seem like the T is using them, chances are it is, it just might be when you aren't watching.
As for pushing it, I don't do it, even so that it doesn't get stressed every time I pass on the furniture where its terrarium is placed, I walk more slowly to avoid any strong vibration. I also never handle my tarantulas to avoid unnecessary stressLooks like your little guy is in need of a proper hide. The other responses in this post did a great job giving examples of what would work well. Another suggestion would be to not nudge it. I completely understand the urge to make sure your new T is okay, I myself go though a helicopter parent phase with any new critter where I constantly check on it to be sure it hasn't randomly died, but by nudging it you may be contributing to it staying still. Ts can't tell the difference between a predator and their owner checking up on them, so by doing that you could be making it more nervous.
There are lots of posts on here about keeping different species, so I would suggest going through and finding some for your T's species and getting some tips. Some of them even have pictures of their setups so you can get some ideas on how to decorate. It's great that you care about your new T, all you have to do is make some improvements to your setup. I promise you that even though a lot of people on here tend to be harsh, they care too and want to help. Learn from other people's mistakes to avoid making them, and read as much as you can. This site is a treasure trove of information
Hi guys, the t came out from where it was and began to investigate the terrarium, now it is hidden in the hiding place that I put in it
