She has finally began creating her own burrow in the substrate this morning! It took her a few days of just walking around and doing not much else but I guess eventually she acclimated🤷‍♂️ The substrate seems to be holding well but hopefully it continues to do so. #solifugae #camelspider #invertebrate

Felicia drinking some water off of one of her fake plants! I’m thinking about adding a water dish but I’m almost certain she’ll eventually web over it🤔 #pterinochilusmurinus #orangebaboontarantula #tarantula #invertebrates

So the first picture is what the camel spider is currently housed in. It is a mixture of sand and soil so when it burrows it’ll hold. However although after being in the setup for a full 24 hours she hasn’t moved much. The last video is what I had her in first but quickly realized the sand would not properly hold burrows for her. So I changed her onto the same soil I use for Apollo and unfortunately at first the soil wasn’t soft enough so I had to briefly take her out and mix the soil with more sand but once I got it right she doesn’t seem to want to attempt all of the sudden. Anyone with experience noticing issues? The container is also nearly 7-8 inches of soil/sand mix so it’s quite tall. #solifugae #camelspider #invertebrate

Saw some really neat dream pets of mine at the @reptileexpo yesterday! One day I would love to have the opportunity to keep a green or blue tree monitor but as anyone who’s done the research knows... big $$$ is involved😟 #reptilesofinstagram #varanus #monitorlizard #tegu

So I may have gotten another pet at the @reptileexpo, a very young Solifugae or also known as the camel spider! Although it’s not entirely a spider and it’s not a scorpion so it’s essentially it’s own unique species! I’m very excited to keep this species! If you have any tips for husbandry let me know in the comments!😁 #solifugae #camelspider #invertebrate

So this is a normal meal I feed Apollo on a regular basis. Overall his diet is a large variety of insects that are dusted with @repashy Supervite! Normally if the insects are available by can I will get as much variety as possible for Apollo. Typically I’ll get @zoomedlabs dubia roaches, grasshoppers, and snails in a can but I’ll also get live hornworms, silk worms and nightcrawlers (earthworms) from time to time. If you have any questions regarding Apollo or his diet write them in the comments! #savannahmonitor #lizardsofinstagram #varanus #varanusexanthematicus #monitorlizard #reptile #reptilesofinstagram

Easily the best $3 I’ve ever spent😂 Really starting to feel that seasonal spirit and getting excited for Halloween! I hope the trick or treaters like my little jack-o’-lantern as much as I do😊 #savannahmonitor #lizardsofinstagram #varanus #varanusexanthematicus #monitorlizard #reptile #reptilesofinstagram

Even if you don’t like them, you gotta admire that speed! And she’s not even an old world tarantula! #chromatopelmacyaneopubescens #greenbottleblue #tarantula #invertebrates

Here’s an up to date look at Apollo’s enclosure! He’s really been enjoying the addition of the moss and plants as I see him almost daily going through or under them. They also make the enclosure look a lot nicer in my opinion🤷‍♂️ #savannahmonitor #lizardsofinstagram #varanus #varanusexanthematicus #monitorlizard #reptile #reptilesofinstagram

Apollo and I are upset that the weather is almost no longer hot enough for outdoor adventures here in Canada. But on the plus side we’ve had a lot of fun this summer and got some awesome videos and pictures out of it!😊 #savannahmonitor #lizardsofinstagram #varanus #varanusexanthematicus #monitorlizard #reptile #reptilesofinstagram
