    Okay, I know tarantulas are perfectly happy being kept in plain old rubbermaid buckets of dirt. But for me, part of the fun of the hobby is setting up 'natural' looking enclosures and displaying my Ts. I know some people on here have gone all out on their enclosures, so let's make a picture heavy thread to inspire our members with future rehouses.

    I'll start with the enclosure I just set up for my GBB using excavator clay:

    Sweet thread...I'll have to take some pictures of a couple of mine.
    I'll leave this one of my Gbb though. 20180309_115414.jpg

    I don't think I'll be contributing to this thread, as I am getting to the point that if I want to get more adds, I have to stick with space saving enclosures, though I do prefer sterilite tubs over getting fancy. To top it off I'm not very creative at all.

    for more permanent enclosures I am going to fix them up nicely, at the moment mine are almost all slings, so its function over form till they get some size,

    Belinda tanks 1.JPG Goliath 1.JPG Goliath 2.JPG Rubiseta.JPG I thought I'd share a couple my wife set up yesterday, not my style but why not have fun with it? We have plenty of natural style enclosures. I have a lot more miniature stuff for her to play with later, even a flock of sheep (including my favourite, Shaun the sheep! ).

    The first one is Timothy, my OBT (P. Murinus), second is Rose, Chilean rose hair (G. Rosea). Neither of them use their pretty accesories :’)

    They didn’t upload first time. Here they are, nothing elaborate but still makes nice displays IMO

    This looks awesome! I wonder if I could do something similar for my LP once he's full grown. His humidity requirements might mess with the clay though so I wonder if i could make that work.

    I don't set them up like this anymore. These are from 2013 right after a break up. We had a spider room when we were together, and I set all the tanks up in a cool naturalistic style. Unfortunately, I don't have pics of the ones he kept, which were most of my favorites. Oh well. Here are a few.

    Great looking enclosures!
    I'm looking forward to setting up a few decent sized enclosures, one of the drawbacks of buying slings is the size of the enclosure you have to work with.
