Default How's my chaco's enclosure?

I just set up my chaco golden knee's new enclosure. How does it look?

Edit: Spid isnt in it yet as I've misplaced the lid

Add a few more inches of substrate to lessen the gap between the floor and top. Doesn't take much of a drop for a tarantula to hurt itself.

Superb!!!!!!!!!!!

If you bury the back of the hide in the sub so you leave the entrance open your lass will probably utilise it. I use a piece of cork bark lent up against the side/back for terrestrials.

Looks very dry to me, definitely better with the increased substrate depth.

Personally I found it beneficial to flood the water bowl so there's a damp bit. Then allow to dry out.

I spray the substrate on one end of her enclosure on a regular basis
