Are you sure it's C.bicolor and not C.margiratus. I DEMAND PROOF!!! Viking
Either way keep the moist and humid. Moist peat with some bark fro climbing. Vertical speace is more important that width.

There just isn't many, and so I don't think people are breeding.

I can't agree with that statement Abyss...I have both C.margaritatus and C.bicolor and my bicolors are clearly larger than margaritatus. That's both male and female. My female bicolor is approx 5 or 10 mm longer than my margaritatus female plus she's slightly bulkier.
You also have to take into consideration that my female margaritatus is adult while my female bicolor is sub adult. So even though they are at different stages my bicolor is still larger than my margaritatus. I'm assuming when she moults to adult that she'll be a good 1 to 2 cm's larger than my margaritatus.
My adult male bicolor is also longer than my adult male margaritatus by about 10 mm to 15 mm plus body build is also slightly stockier.

My bicolors have been 100% ID'd by Giorgio Molisani so there's no doubt that they are C.bicolors

Adult male C.bicolor


Sub adult female C.bicolor
