    Enclosure for new T stirmi

    Congrats on the new sling,nice looking enclosure I'm sure he will be very happy in there. Is that the T.stirmi slings that TSS have in stock just now? I was thinking of ordering one along with a P.vorax, as it's been a few years since I've had a stirmi sling and would be fun to raise one again......

    P. Muticus likes being sealed up...normal?

    +1 For what Nicolas C said,the only thing I would add is althought P.muticas is the second largest Baboon Tarantula in Africa their very slow growers,therefore don't get to worried if your T dosent take food every time you offer it as long as you offer food every week then it will eat when it's...

    DISASTER! :(

The best way I have found to apply the glue is to use a plastic drinking straw and only use a very small amount of glue over the wound,this way the glue drys in a minute or so and by only using a small amount it helps prevent any...
