Brought in a bunch of these as 3i slings a while back to shared with fellow clubs members (ICSC) and kept 5 for myself

I put them in 2x2x3 amac boxes that I set up for non-avic arboreals and they are now ready for the next rehouse.

Because 5 is an odd number, I brought in a 6th P mett sling, suspected female, and put her in the next size up enclosure the rest of the bunch are earmarked for:

Nice. Great score getting a bunch of P mets.
 
What will be the final upgrade from the peanut butter jars?

Curious, because when my Avic matures, I am not knowing what to house her in.

Any recommendations on a final setup for a mature Versi?

Probably gallon jugs

For a mature avics I use inverted gallon jugs or exo terra nano tall type enclosures. Avics web at the top of their enclosures, so top openers are not always ideal

This is really good to know. I'm absorbing info like a sponge here. Really glad I joined this forum.

So much knowledge and experience here, it's very impressive.

Thank you!
 
Do the poeci's web at the top too?

Sorry for so many questions, but you are like a goldmine of information and I'm eager to learn...

Non-avic arboreals don't specifically web high up, but they can. They tend to utilize natural hides, like holes in trees, or they make dirt-curtain hides against things like trees, and some burrow (not like terrestrials)

Poecilotheria can be kept like Pseudoclamoris, Psalmopoeus, etc as slings but will require more space than those as adult

There are far more experienced, and knowledgeable, keepers here than I. Do your research!
