The brown morph seemani's are pretty new to the hobby? That would explain the difficulties I'm having in finding any info on them.Originally posted by Spiderdad33
I know what you're saying Atrax, but like I said I have lots of these and some have very little visable leg striping, which really has nothing to do with ID anyway, but when you talk of A. seemanni, everyone expects to see the stripes, but this newer color morph, many individuals just dont have it.
Yeah that's why I lowered it to about 55-60%. He's been down on the substrate in his hide all day so maybe he's happy now. Still, if it is A. seemani, I thought they liked it a little more humid, say 70-80%. Very strange, but he's quickly becoming my favorite...maybe I'll call him mutt.Oh, and maybe it wants even lower humidity? It looks to me like it's too much for it if it's still sitting on the air holes.
Thanks for all the tips. I've got him on 4" of peat and had it moistened throughout although I've let it dry out a bit trying to see if that was the problem. He's also got a hide which he stays inside of all the time now. I think I'll slightly raise the humidity and see what happens because it seems a little dry for A. seemani and you might be right, he may have been hanging from the top for other reasons (escape artist wannabe). Thanks to everyone for their inputs.Also, A. seemanni is a burrower, so either give it enough substrate to burrow, and/or provide a shelter to make them feel more secure. Just a thought for ya.
