    Hello Everyone
    Me and my daughter are new to the hobby and bought our first T this past weekend. Glad there’s a place where we can refer to for help.

    Avics are awesome.

    Do beware of older caresheets that say they needed humidity etc. That is actually fatal to them.

    They are a dry spider that requires a large water dish positioned above the ground. It should be half full at all times and not be overflowed intentionally.

    C versicolor also is in the same situation. I don't have your species but the actual requirements for both are identical.
