Hemithyrsocera histrio


Recommended Posts


Is anyone here keeping Hemithyrsocera histrio? I'm curious about the growth and reproductive rates of this handsome species!

If you are keeping this species how do you have them set up and how humid / moist do you keep their enclosures / substrate? What do you use for a substrate?

Their care is similar to P. nivea. I keep mine in a tall shoe box, coco fiber at the bottom, moss and dry leaves oak/elm. Since they climb glass and plastic I use vaseline on the sides of the shoe box to prevent any of them from escaping. As food I use fish food and fruit that I put in one corner and change once it's eaten or gets moldy.
