    As far as I am aware, Scarab is out..
    You can look up Ruan on facebook and ask him as they still were in contact a while ago.
    As for Raven I think she is still around, lurking in the back ground some where.

    It is pretty sad, but allot of people left the hobby in general the whole hobby is pretty much quite or died out!
    Even face book sites are dead.

    Morning Ryan And welcome.

    It is advisable to give the spider something to climb on a perch.
    With regards to what glue to use, you can use marine silicone (must let it dry for a couple days) or glue from a glue gun you can even use waterproof wood glue.
    You can take a stick from the garden as long as you have not sprayed pesticides any where on the trees or in the yard.
    All you need to do is wash the stick with hot water and even can scrub it. and it will be fine.

    I know the upside down enclosure works better than the normal kind we tend to use.

    Well if you have the basics down then your spider will be as happy as it can be.

    If it got substrate, a hide, water and food then she/he will be happy.

    Unless you have more in depth questions to ask to make it better for her?

    It not illegal to export tarantulas out of SA, as for the procedure to folloe I am not sure where to start.

    Maybe contacting the USA custom/animal control for a start and then contacting nature conservation after that.

  • Jake replied to the topic 'Toys for Ts?' in the forum.

    I have not used toys before, but i have read about it. But If you have to think of them in the wild they would move stones, sticks and fang fulls of soil.

    Some tarantulas are known to be bull dossers that just re-landscape their cages every other day.
    Would be intresting to see a spider playing with a ball, and the owner saying fetch fluffy fetch. :lol:

    You must just watch that the spray paint is heat resistant and does not let toxic smell evaporate into the roaches.

    A heating pad wont be able to heat your spider efficiently so you need to make a design that clads the box in polystyrene or something that will allow the heat to maintain in the roaches tub.
    People normally stick the heating pad on the side or under the tub, the under side does not always work as the the space between the mat and the tub is a bit big.

    If you roaches gets to cold they will start ding off so one needs to keep them heated and also if you want to grow your colony you need to give the right environment or it will just stay stagnant and not grow.

    Well if you going to be buying more in then you can use the colony now to start feeding your spiders you will be feeding then plus minus 32 feeder items a months on the 4 spiders you have now.
    And they are cheap enough to keep buying a 100 roaches at time if you need more feeders.

    It is better to get yourself a larger tub so long as the 5L will run out of space within a couple of months.
    But for now it should be fine.
    It is better to get a heating pad instead of light as an ice cream container is a bit small and the heat from the light might heat the whole tub but if you don't have a heating mate on site then the light will do fine until you can get sorted.

    Sexing them is a whole new ball game.
    I will post a sexing topic for you a bit later.

    The right way to go about a colony is not to touch or feed out of it for at least 1 year, the moment you stating feeding from it you never rally get a chance to catch up.

    Work it out like this, if Harco has 10 spiders and you feed your spiders 2 prey items once a week how many roaches will you use in a month? 80 roaches.
    So over 5 months you will need 400 roaches to feed to your spiders.

    As for the roaches, you will not go wrong on starting a colony for feeder roaches, they are far more nutrient rich than crickets and healthy and last longer than what crickets do.
