Why won't my tarantulas burrow. I've tried giving them hides I've tried taking away the hides. I've Tried starting burrows. Non of them seem to want to burrow. Even the cobalt blue when it was still helthy. What is going on.

Give them time - - my H. lividum spent two solid months out and about before deciding to construct a huge burrow over just two days, didn't see her for two months, and now she splits her time between the burrow and being out. All Ts are different, just enjoy them for how they are.

Adopting their new home maybe? Keep them in a dark place for a week or so, i sure they'll finish making holes/burrows. Disturbance is not a must, old world T's or all of the T's spent their time, alone. Just provide a source of hydration.

A tarantula will do what it wants no matter how you change things around. Just give it time they will surprise you one day haha!! Also my obt webs like crazy too it also goes from it's webbed hide to it's plant hide which is webbed so you can't see her really clever!!
