First pic is my selenotholus secret squirrel, adult female.
Second pic is my selenotypus platinum, female, she is a little shy, very placid
Third pic is my little selenotypus sp3
Forth pic is my phologius rubiseta had her since she was basicly transperant she actually got out while I was doing some husbandry. Caught her in the catch cup🙂

Awesome T's! I laugh so much every time I see secret squirrels, I kid you not that was my joke name suggestion for them that somehow stuck on :rofl:

Out of curiosity, how much vertical height is there between the substrate and the top of the enclosures for those adults? Looks like a bit of a fall risk from those pics

Yea I know I red your post, man the secret squirrel was hissy when I housed her, pretty fistey must be the kotzman in her I think? But the platinum so placid. They have eaten and are settling in ok. Enclosure ramps up will attach pic. The lid is mesh I have taped up 90 percent of it is that not enough air for these sp? Ps will be adding some greenery shortly

Hey bro, while I have you on the thread, I have them in dark conditions in my room is this suitable? They all seem active and happy, just a bit concerned to let in to much if any natural night. I only ask because I feel you are an expert keeper🙂

I think they will be okay in the dark, but I would still recommend allowing light through during the day for the sake of their internal clocks. Although, you could also achieve the same thing with LED's on a timer I believe. I only keep them dark for prolonged periods of time when initially letting them settle in. The only real negative impact I could think of would be them becoming overly adjusted to the dark and then never coming out if you flash a torch in there

Thanks. What do you think of the enclosure pics
Id probably raise the substrate height on the larger ones, ideally you want no more than 1 and half time the tarantulas legspan of space between the substrate and the lid, as fall damage can very easily kill a T. The setups overall though look great mate, excellent job
