I am by no means an expert although IMHO the set up looks fine. If you want more floor space use a smaller water dish, milk bottle tops usually spot on size wise. Nice looking T too.Hey guys, first time posting.
I've recently acquired a P. regalis sling, although I've had a G. rosea for 5 years and a P. murinus for 2.
Since I've never cared for a sling I wanted to be sure I'm doing everything alright with it.
The sling is about 4cm or so (legspan).
Does everything look right with the enclosure? Does it have a good size?
It's currently dug near the cork bark, I've read that slings from this specie do this, so I'm not worried about that.
Yesterday I've placed a small live cricket there, and I can't see it today. Is it fine to assume it has been eaten? I've not seen the T eat it though. Is it possible to be buried in the substrate? Last thing I want to happen is for the cricket to bother the T while molting. I think I'll kill the crickets from now on. Just to be on the safe side.
I'm keeping it in temperatures between 26-28ºC.
