Re-did my P. irminia’s terrarium in a bit of a hurry late last night - something in there was smelling super horrid so I decided to clean it out completely for the first time in months (maybe over a year) - normally I just spot clean and let my T’s do their thing w/o a problem.
I think some small pieces of leftover from a recent meal wound up in the water bowl which leaked into and soaked the nearby driftwood because removing mainly those two things along with some soil did the trick. I cleaned and re-scaped the terrarium and put in a new hide positioned roughly the way her previous main tunnel was (short video clip of her tunnel webbing in 2nd slide). She’s so huge now! I kept her in a jar while I was working and left her in the (open) jar in the terrarium overnight so she could come out and explore on her new surroundings on her own terms.
