It can take fossorials a couple weeks to start burrowing into a new enclosure. Never seen anyone use a Exo Terra for a fossorial tarantula before as they are used for arboreal tarantulas but whatever floats your boat. I can see you have more substrate towards the back of enclosure and your substrate is moist so all you can do is wait longer for it to settle in man. Once it takes to burrow good luck seeing it, I rarely see my girl.

A kritter keeper or a faunarium would be great for a fossorial tarantula.

Get a 13L (pictured) or 21L hobby life tub (you can order them from plasticboxshop or Amazon).

It’s perfectly normal for Fossorials to take some time to adjust to their new environment.

As many people here have said, not the best choice of enclosure for this species. I house all my Fossorials in 5.5 Gallon Critter Cages. Here’s a pic of my E. murinus setup, but all of my other Fossorials are setup EXACTLY the same....

Start your own thread please. This question has absolutely nothing to do with this thread.

It would be really helpful if you showed us a picture of your tarantula’s enclosure but you should make a new thread.
