What I’ve noticed right away trying to take photos for this blog is the slings are very skittish. If I am quit, enter the room without turning on the lights etc. I can usually catch many of them out of their burrows & going about their business…
…but as soon as go for the lights, camera, touch the enclosure etc. they retreat into the safety of their burrows so quickly it makes me chuckle. In a blink of an eye they almost look like a reef of anemones fleeing at the hint of danger.
I have to admit they are pretty darn cute! I am having a lot of fun with them however, getting good photos for the blog is easier said than done!
Four days after rehousing:
I put about 10-12 pinhead in the enclosure and lightly misted.
There is some webbing starting to accumulate around high-traffic areas such as the cork tube and the moss tunnel that runs along the outside of the bark.
