    A. Hentzi and live plants

    I just acquired an a. hentzi last night from my parents' property in southern Colorado. Our local climate is very dry and arid (we've had 100°F + temps for the past week) and prairie/desert like. I'm curious if I could put a few live plants in the enclosure with it, to more closely mimic our...

    Removing food

    Hi all! First time poster here. I have a T. vagans sling that I got back in November. It molted on Feb. 2 of this year, and I waited about 6 days before I fed it for the first time after the molt. Since that time, for about a month, I fed it regularly (about once every 4 or 5 days) and it would...
