Thought about this build today. I was in the local PETCo bring to talk myself out of another tank. When I noticed a commotion by the Herp selection. The crowd of people & employees were watch a Tarantula molt!!!
While I don't see myself every own a Tarantula, I must say it was very cool to observe. When escaped it's old skin? It was upside down and you could clearly see it's fangs and two nails? on the bottom of each foot. I also learned they spin a web to hide in during the molt.

Here's the cork round that I am using for the hide/trunk feature. I built up a bunchof Gorilla Glue around the top opening so that I would have something harder to drive the stainless steel screws into.
And here's the whole thing. I am considering sanding down the cork texture to make it more slender and with a texture more like the manzanita branches that I will also use. What do you think?

|BeachBum2012||Absolutely stunning. Any idea what your client will house with your creation?|

No this isn't my planting. I'm shipping it out tonight.

Here is thing planted up some more. This manzanita piece is not for me, but it gives an idea how this kind of planting with Tillandsia can look.

|BeachBum2012||Where do you get your tillys and your identifying information on them? I picked up a few and would live to be able to identify them|

Ooh exciting! I just re-did my poor A. Metallica's tiny enclosure. It has been cold and dry for over a week (blackout and at dad's house) in there and she was death curling. The new cage has a live moss substrate and live moss for climbing. Only problem is getting the little fast thing back into the little cage...
Once she is bigger I want to design a cage like yours. They are really amazing!

|BeachBum2012||I can't wait to see how this turns out. All of your projects turn out beautifully.|

This looks really cool. These setups of yours always turn out really nice.
Have you ever thought of keeping cockroaches in these manzanita setups? Panchlora nivea would look really cool in one of these in a group.
