Hey hey

A few days ago I bought some new T's and got this little black-ish female along with my order. I did a little poking around, but having been able to find a good caresheet for it. After failing to find the info online I've written the seller about it, but havn't heard back from him yet and I'm quite keen to hear if anyone here has some good tips.

Keep them like Selenocosmia or other Asian burrowing species and you should be fine ;]

That was my guess, so I gave her a burrowing terrarium with somewhat moist earth. However she spends the day just sitting in a corner and the evening/night climbing to the top of the 10x20x40 cm enclosure. Currently she's hanging there on the terrarium, acting like a wannabe arborial. :confused:

Maybe try starting a pre-made burrow for her.If that doesn't work you can always make a hide or retreat with some bark.

I guess the same way phlogiellus inermis are kept, moist with deep substrate.
And then you'll never see them again.;P
They're pretty hardy, I've had them very moist and quite dry.
Can't say that sp "palawan" are exactly the same, but I would suspect though.

Just give it a hiding spot and it should use that, or burrow under it.
