Got these three slings from @Mattkc last week. They have all settled in nicely, and look to be in premolt! Might name them Huey, Dewey and Louie lol

I made them basic terrestrial enclosures in 24oz deli cups with about 4 inches of damp substrate, cork bark hunk-hides glued to the wall, moss and bottle cap water dishes.

This sling has made the most mess with the substrate, I've had to dig the water dish out 4 times lol

Peek-a-boo, I see you! Bald butt, too lol

This sling has done the least digging and just holed up with no peep-show lol but it was topside this morning in full view. Probably trying to tan that bare a$$.

This sling has been the most ambitious and has dug a long, deep burrow. It's impressive.

Can't see in this pic but also bare bottom. I'd hide too...

Really nice living environment you made for these guys - they will do well in your care! Don’t forget to consistently wet a small area around the water bowl once a week to maintain a higher humidity level. This species is found in a more humid tropical environments from the Mexican Yucatán jungles southward into Central America. Hope you enjoy these guys as much as I have!

Will do, thank you! And thanks to them filling over their water bowls repeatedly it's plenty damp lol
