I just completed my new enclosure for a communal group of C. Hentzi. It has bark from the long leaf pine tree on three sides.

I etched a scorpion into the door for ventilation.

I also found one of my females with a brood on her back. For size reference the female's body is 3/4" from chelicerae to the base of the tail.

It's cool how the babies don't fluoresce.

That's a nice enclosure KJ. How communal is this species? I have not read up on them yet but I do know a guy selling them. :)

Very communal. I've seen several near each other on the same tree. Until I finished this ten gallon tank, I had about 30 of them in a 1 gallon jar. I just put in a bunch of bark to give lots of hides. They don't seem bothered at all when one climbs over another.
