I disagree with that. For a juvenile or adult yes, a week or so is adequate. For a sling, you can try feeding them after 3 to 5 days.
Perforate the sides of the enclosure for ventllation, all around, starting 1" above the substrate and stopping 1" below the lid/roof and NO HOLES in the top.
Ok so I just joined this forum and was so excited to go through all the threads and possibly learn a few things. My girlfriend just called me and said that our sling has been on its back since 930 this morning, it's now 5 in the afternoon, can moulting take this long. I'm really nervous that it didn't make it through it. Please someone have some good news
Arboreals need consistent humidity in captivity. Holes in the lid expedite evaporation in the enclosure. Keeping the top 1" and lid free from venting creates a humidity cap, of sorts.I'm curious as to why no holes on the top either, my enclosure has holes on the side and on the top, and I think I have been doing just fine and my T, if anything I find that the water dish just tends to evaporate faster and I'm filling it more often.
Just wondering cause if there is a reason as to why no holes on the top I would like to fix it then
Sorry I know this is an older post already too just popped up on my thread
So the only thing that I can say for certain is
i have a Avicularia. Thanks Chubbs, you always have good info.
