    Hi! Can I please see some of your enclosures for the above species? Mine is currently a 1cm sling, but looking for ideas for when s/he is bigger :)

    I have seen mixed opinions as to whether this is an arboreal or semi-arboreal species, so if anyone can clarify for me that would be great :)

    Currently is in a Lucky Reptile critter box (attached Google image)

    Thanks in advance!

    They are considered arboreal.

    I just love ExoTerra nano enclosures!!

    She has since moved up to a a 4x4x7" AMAC box that is upside down with a branch screwed to the top like this one:

    For sling and small juvies I think the AMAC boxes can’t be beat. They look great and they’re ridiculously cheap.

    They are made here in the US by a company called AMAC. They are actually food grade containers too, so very safe.

    I'm sorry I don't know if they are available in the UK. We have so many UK members, hopefully someone will chime in. @Enn49 ? Might you know the answer to this question, or know who would?

    Amac boxes are available in the UK at very reasonable prices but the postage is astronomic. I guess that although the Container Store advertise as now selling in the UK they are still dispatched from the US.
    https://www.containerstore.com/s/gift-packaging/containers/clear-amac-boxes/12d?productId=10003497
    Postage on 1 4" sq. x 7-1/4" h is £30 :eek:.

    I buy most of my acrylic containers from https://bugzarre.co.uk/epages/95000...nsect_ Cages_ Uk"/Clear_Plastic_Display_Boxes. He also sells on eBay under the same name.
