I keep mine like a pokie.
When they're slings; they'll burrow, but around the 3" mark you'll see them hanging out pokie style...
Give lots of ventilation. Great eaters, too.
Easily one of the most startlingly beautiful T's out there..
I am really wanting to get a Singapore Blue but I'd like some information / advice on them. I have heard they are supposedly like an arboreal H. Lividium. I'm not a novice at keeping T's though I'm also not an expert. I've had King Baboons, OBT's, and I have some H. Lividum coming. I'm just looking for some solid info about how to care (and be careful) for these T's.
Anything would be greatly appreciated.
I actually hate mine. Its around 4" and I haven't seen it but only twice since I got a few months back. I'm really dissapointed in how much of a pet hole it is.
Darling take me home
To the castle made of skulls and bones
Sing me a song to remind me where I belong
In your arms, my love, in cold blood

now its hanging out all the time.
And as far as compairing it to a cobalt blue...well that is like saying an ultamarine blue caddy is like an over grown blue yugo.
mine tried to bite me the other day when i touched her leg lol slapped me pretty good and did an OBT style threat pose.
I knew I had to have this T the moment I first heard of it. Of course, when i did first hear of it, the guy that told me about it said that it was handleable. This guy's been known to stretch the truth before this, so I was not surprised to find them flighty with a tendency to throw a threat pose when they feel cornered. I learned that from Charles from Botar before I bought mine from him.
What I did not know was just how fast these things are. Their legs are sooo long for their body that I swear that they teleport!! I recommend that you give yourself plenty of room to work with when you have to remove one from its cage to clean it.
I was disappointed by mine at first, too. It spent almost all of its time underground and when it was out, it sure didn't look very blue to me. Certainly not like the pictures I had seen.
Well, now mine is about 3 inches and has made an arboreal web like an Avic and it seems like she is more blue every day.
I highly recommend them, but not for the timid or slow!
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But Cancer will probably kill me.
I spend my time on vice after vice,
None of which actually thrill me.
I bought a lil 2" sling from NW inverts about a month ago and the lil guy molted 3 days ago, I saw the molt laying outside his lil hangout and hes back in his lil den.
I don't have one...don't they require higher humidity? I also read they're more aggressive?
Now I do have some pokies, so are they that similar?
He looked about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food.
Not aggressive; insanely defensive. And Jayzun is correct. They teleport. The fastest T. we have - no question. That includes the H.macs and every other pokie; including also the OBT'S.
I would recommend HIGHLY that they be kept in cages with FRONT access, not top.
The human eye is not fast enough to see them coming until it's toooo late.
Humidity with good ventilation is called for, here.
if you use search your computer would prolly blow up.
Would 60-70% be appropriate humidity? I just received mine today, and she molted during transit. Want to make sure it's set up correctly.
how big do they get and how long until they show blue color?
