I've been moving a lot of Ts to larger enclosures recnetly. It's been pretty fun to see how all the Ts have grown especially the ones I don't get to see often.

Last week I rehoused my 6 C. sp. Hati Hati slings from their 2 oz condiment cups to a 16 oz deli cups. Over the week I was not pleased with they way they were taking to the new containers. They primaraly made burrows in their old cups and though I gave them some moss/plants on one side to use for a home 3 took to making webs on the cup lid join.

Last night I decided to rehouse them into 32 oz deli cups and give them some more options. I had a lot of miscellaneous plant pieces laying about from older projects and decided to use some of it up.They seem to approve and have all started a nice home web at the base of the cork.

I always love your setups. Only the necessities, but it still manages to look decorated.

Another one of those Nazi owners making demands on their pets I see :clown::clown::clown:
Yeah, I'm strict with them. How dare I not allow them to web up the lid so I can't feed or water them. :D

Usually they get free reign on most anything but I hate lid webbers. I've been adjusting all the setups so they can do as they please without the door/lid becoming an issue.

My bamboo skewer enclosure taught me a big lesson. That my GBB juvi male likes to web high unless you give a lot of lower clutter to web in. He had access to a nice burrow hide and a lot of skewers and he went up and webbed a hammock and then webbed the lid.:shifty: Now he's made a lot of web tubes between the skewers which was pretty cool. The next one though I'm going to do a hide and bush setup and see what happens.

Thanks, I like for them to be functional. This species liked to burrow so far but they also like something to web off of. That's why I tossed the round green thing near the bottom. Other than that I just smear hot glue on some wood and stick fake plants on till something works. :D

Just 4 days in and this T has really been busy setting up it's new home. That is a lot of dirt moved and placed and webbed. I don't think I'll be seeing this one much from now on. :)

Rehoused in the evening on the 27th (Thursday).

I've got about 10 Chilobrachys babies in 4oz containers with the lids throuroughly webbed and I cannot wait to get them in bigger containers where they won't web the lid.
