    She molted and was to big for the skull so I had to remake it. I also had to pull out the roach as well. I had a larger hide around so that want a problem. The size increase was surprising.

    The enclosure itself is a 3 gallon Terra Blue professional with a reptilock. They are wonderful for Ts. The screens are fully bonded so they won't catch any feet or claws. Very convenient for filling water dishes.

    I put those in the who molted today section but I'll post the best 2 here. Why not?

    The rest as well as a short post molt video are in the other section.

    These are drop dead gorgeous. They appreciate just a little bit of extra humidity by overflowing the water dish 2 or 3 times a week. Aside from that husbandry is virtually identical to Lasiodora. Heck, as long as you're not going to handle them, they might just might be a good first terrestrial for some new people.

    Of course, newbies should always start with a sling between 1 to 2 inches in size so they aren't overwhelmed.

    Either way, you just gotta get one of these!! No matter what sex, they're awesome but very different.
