So as mosst of you know i dont have a top for my tank yet
i was looking around his tank seeing if i could find him [he has already taken to burrowing]
and i noticed that the one hide that i dont think he has used yet has what looks like webs all over it
they are on the outside, and the inside.

should i pull out the hide, destroy the webbing and kill the spider or just leave it? [im arachnophobic ^^;]

[sorry the pics arent that great D:]

Front: [you can see the webbing on the right]


Back: [webs are all over the back, even into the substrate on the left. not sure how though lol]

From the looks of it, it's probably some string mold. Happens when dirt is overly moist, it forms a kind of webbing. Happens to my house plants all the time when I let my lady water them. Smile

Grab it out (check to ensure there are no spiders there, just in case) wipe it down, and you'll be fine.

i think you might be right
when i took out the log where the bits were in the ground it was wet so its probably that
i didnt see a spider in there either so lol

EDIT:
also how do i avoid that in the future?

Usually soil will adjust (it's odd, I know), but make sure you're soil is damp, and not drowning.

That's about it. Happens to each of my house plants, and both my vivs once, and has never happened again to any of them.

Sounds fine to me.

Yeah, hopefully it won't happen again. I've never seen it twice in the same soil. Replace the soil, and it returns, but never twice.

Doh!

They do that.

I picked up an emp b/c I wanted a pet hole.
I don't regret the decision, but I do wish I could have reconsidered.

Haha, I have the same problem.

I got a tunneler, which is cool, but my tanks wide enough the only part I can see is the entrance.

I have since seen no tunneling, nor my scorp, in about a week.

It's cool cause she's happy. and I know her food is being eaten because I find the odd leg or rump of cricket, but I just wish she'd make an appearance so I can stress about her health. Razz

You would smell it if he died,when he bholes up(he will) sniff the cage every few days to make sure he is alive.

Thats good! It would smell like death if he died.
The substrate smell will subside over time.
