What's your preference and why? I am looking into buying some for hides and I am just curious what or why one would be better than the other? Maybe it doesn't really matter at all? Thanks

I always go for slightly curved cork bard so they can dig under it if they want to.

Yeah, i have tried rounds with several of my terrestrial Ts and they don't like them. I think they like to dig.

One time i put two rounds side by side that had extra openings on the joined sides thinking this would give the T another escape route and added hiding space. Nope. It did not use it. But a cricket did take up living in the spare bedroom until I removed it.

That’s kinda what I was thinking so if it’s terrestrial then possibly will use but chances are that the digger won’t?

That has been my experience, but even the same species of tarantula can act differently.
