    I have a LP about 4" atm. I have some ideas for a adult home for it and even have a 20g long tank I cant figure out something else. For those who have adult LPs what are you useing? Or of you are in the same situation as myself and raising your own?

    I bought my 2 LPs purpose built terrariums, they are 24" long x12" deep x10" high and front opening.
    Mole in the top one is an MM of 7" dls, while Pip in the bottom is female and around 6" dls.

    They were made for me by spidershop.pl and the front opening makes life so easy and means they are stackable.

    Thank you! Those Jamies enclousers are nice but super pricey. I have one of the normal large ones for my c.versicolor

    They are very pricey. I bought several of the large ones when I was new and just bought an XL one on Craigslist for $70. I like the display look of them. I only plan on having maybe 20 Ts so I can fit them all on 2 shelving units

    I wish she had a specialized enclosure for fossorials. I even asked if she can offset the ventilation holes an inch or 2 higher so I can get another inch of sub in there. She gets them made in bulk so she would need a bulk-sized order to do that. Oh well.

    But I guess I don't really need a display case for a pet hole.

    I have my L Klugi and my smaller scorpion in 2 of these enclosures. The professional series is what you want. They are reasonable in terms of price and the repti-lock system will give you peace of mind.

    It's rated for venomous animals. I got my first enclosure at repticon when I got my first invert.

    I'm sure you can find whatever size you want.

    How big is you Klugi? My only concern with mesh is bigger Ts and chew through them. I have a 10gal like that my friend trash scored for me well two of them. But my knee went accidently went through one of them and I got a gnarly gash on my leg. But anyway i thought about using it for one of my Ts. I suppose i can always use plexiglass with holes drilled out in it as a replacement for the screen. Thank you for the link

    Scorp badass3a.jpg The L Klugi is a juvenile. There's no way that enclosure will work for an adult that might be anywhere from 7"-10"!!

    I'd estimate its size at about 2"-2.5".

    I just love the professional series of enclosures!!

    The screen positively locks into place with the repti-lock and it's very sturdy. My juvenile has burrowed to the bottom and hasn't even once walked onto the screen.

    The screen is supposed to be snake proof, lizard proof etc. Some of those monitors have knarley claws!! I would like to think that a T couldn't get out. My Malaysian Forest Scorpion has very powerful pinchers. She hasn't even tried to break through.

    I'll put a pic of the scorp here to assuage any concerns about that.

    They also make a 12x24x6 which is probably wide enough but might be too low. With an inch or two of substrate, you only have 4 inches left. I'm speculating, but if they flip on their back to molt, they might need more vertical height then that might allow.
