Hey guys. I'm in the process of waiting for my OBT slings to come in the mail with my Payson Blonde. And I was wondering..What is the cage setup for the OBT slings? I got a basic idea..But I wanted to make sure.

This is my idea...

Hooded area with small deli cup.
2-3 inches of coconut substrate (FOR NOW)
Low humidity
Feeding? Pinhead-Small crickets?
Please help need it ASAP thanks guys

With an OBT you will want to give it both enough substrate to make a burrow, and enough height to go arboreal if it wants. OBT are known to do both, and some change after a molt and then go back. Keep it dry in there, but depending on the size of the sling you wont want/need a water dish. I only give water dishes to slings over 2". For water under 2" just mist one small spot in the enclosure about once a week, they will be able to get most if not all of their water from their food. As for food size, again it depends on the size of the sling, but you can always feed several smaller meals instead of one giant one that's too big. For the enclosure a deli cup will be fine for a sling, or a vial, which it will probably come in and be able to live in that for awhile.

Thanks for all the help. I was thinking about taking a deli cup or a lock cup that I have and turning it on it's side. But i'm going to use the vial probably until i can figure out if it climbs or burrows more. Thanks again i'll be posting a video tomorrow of me opening them Smile Along with my Payson blonde

Heres what i have for my OBT:


little bit of dry eco earth for substrate, with one end a lil bit moist. Then i got a little bit of loose, dry eco earth and poured it on the dry end under a stick or something. They love burrowing under the loose substrate and then webbing it up around the stick

I live in Orlando Forida if that helps any. I want the square one and the smallest one.

I'll do the drilling. So that'll be about 5.00 plus Shipping

Im using the same types of cube for all my slings, I found though, that with my 2 OBT slings I had too much substrate, they were dug in so deep they were having trouble finding theyre crix. I now have about 1/2" of substrate in the cubes and they are webbing up alot more and able to catch theyre crix much better.
