danket Posted October 15, 2010 Report Share Posted October 15, 2010 Hello, I just got a pair of D. tityus adults that are in their dormant period. Right now they seem to love burrowing in some cool moist coco coir in a plastic box by a cold window. I live in NY. They act normally when handled, and are very tolerant of handling. Since I got them a few days ago, I have been digging them out of the coir and playing with them for around 10 minutes, one to two times a day. Does excessive handling disrupt their dormancy? Is keeping them near a cool window sufficient to keep them from breaking dormancy? Do they need to burrow or can I keep them in shallow substrate for viewing? Should I start trying to feed them around April? Thanks for any help / suggestions! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
