    New A. mauretanicus setup

    I used my last bowfront for an Andro colony (still some growing to do before theyll be housed together). Basic decor with a good amount of hides.
    The heating is via 2 ceramic elements on 2 thermostats (timed for nightdrop).


    Im working of making a little door to view under the hides, heres the proto (very slapped together)
    Two cd covers with cardboard...;)
  3. Nice enclosure. Like the burrow viewing flaps idea.

    Nice one, Tabor. Reminds me of the Flash Gordon movie. :D
  7. I like the wide open space you gave these guys, how big is the tank? So does the one in the corner have a mouse stuck to his face?

    I threw a small pinky in there and they all shared it and the larger male took it from the other and ran into the corner with it lol =) other than that they get along just fine, i picked the tank up at a thrift store for 10 bucks i think its 25-30gal.

    will be posting some of my B. Jacksonii once they all get here !

    The big cage is where I plan on keeping a breeding group of T. falconensis (1.2), the small ones are for housing my 4 T. asthenes. They haven't got here yet but are supposed to be here by 3pm today :}

    I use under-bed sliding storage bins with latching lids for my emps; I find that they are out of their hides and active much more often when provided with darkness rather than the brighter environment of a glass aquarium - though obviously the bins aren't as good for viewing. The lid is drilled for ventillation. The floor space is larger than a 10g, with significantly less height, but enough for a good 4" of soil/peat/coco fiber. Each bin has one hide, one log, and one sphagnum moss area. I keep the moss wet, which tends to keep the humidity up as it evaporates into the bin. Plus the scorps seem to like hanging out in there when shedding.
    Here are four of my bins; I have more, but these are the only ones I have pics of. Most only have one adult per bin, but I do have one with two emperors and it seems to house that number comfortably.

    Those are the same enclosures I've been looking around for.

    Where did you get them and how much did they cost you?

    Thanks a lot.

    Urodacus manicatus female enclosure (male could probably fit in here with her too)

    Urodacus macrurus (?) enclosure. Currently in a sample jar awaiting ecdysis, though. (For obvious reasons)

    Urodacus elongatus female enclosure
