Cool! We'd love to see some pics if you have any! and I love the story, I too have had Avics decide to parachute away from me, with no injuries thankfully.. just be careful. :)

How big is your baby? You may also try peat moss mixed with ecoearth as a means of keeping humidity up, but when they get larger you can just keep a water dish at the bottom of the tank for huidity. I used to mist the substrate for my A. avic until I boght a bigger water dish and it worked perfectly.

Thanks guys! We are really careful with our babies, we reat them like our kids we are even re designing the inside of their terrarium to look like their natural habitat in the quadeloupe rainforest.. I am excited to see how it turns out and I'll post some pics as soon as I get their terrariums finished! :):)
