    You coward, although it is the safest option.
    I would have given it more height and a little less substrate, they are semi-arboreal. I had mine in an arboreal ExoTerra and she used the full height (18") to build her home.

    I was only teasing :). I never took risks with my girl having read what a bite from one can do.

    I've never experienced an OBT sling, my girl was bought as a juvi but that will change when I get a little one at the end of this month.

    Krush: that's the way I would do it. I think you are smart. OBTs are awesome, but unpredictable......just ask Shampain.
    You know what is amazing? I read that poor kids in Angola will hunt these as a food source. Apparently, they get bit by them all the time.
    Thank god I don't live in Angola.:)

    I dont even eat meat so my T as no worries on that. They also will at H.gigas in Cameron. They are hard to find because of the from what I read. That's why you can only really find hobby form H.gigas(Hysterocrates gigas) but out friends in the uk will probably have a easier time finding them before us in the states.

    My L Klugi also gravitated towards the skull I put in almost immediately after I unboxed her. When I moved her into a slightly smaller enclosure, she burrowed a few days later, right under the skull.
