I came home from my dealer last night with a T stigmurus, H franzwerneri and an adult P villosus (black morph). My question is in regards to the P villosus, which I named Big Angry, and how to best accomodate its burrowing habits. I have read it is best to mix the sand with a bonding material, such as clay dust, so the tunnel/ burrow will not collapse after initial wetting and settling. My fossorial tarantulas (i.e. P muticus) has done well in a soil/peat mixture but I'm trying to keep the substrate and hides as reflective of the natural habitat as possible. Any suggestions regarding substrate composition and set up would be appreciated. Cheers.
