    That way he'll get much more exercise!

    Because Pongo is young, I'd add a feeding "dish" for his crickets to keep them away from the substrate. I like and use Lee's 24 oz hexagonal Betta keepers. Another option is a 10 ounce bar glass.

    What did you wrap around the "chill bar" stick (bamboo ?) across the top?

    It's a jungle vine wrapped around it to make it a bit bigger. It is bamboo. I don't give him crickets. That top bar didn't work so I adapted

    Thanks. Nice work!

    Maybe I gotta wash the sleepy seeds out of my eyes! The vine you wrapped around the bar seems flat.

    It flattened as I wrapped it, no idea why. That's why it looks weird. I am planning to tong feed Pongo Dubia since he has had them before

    You could add more vines to the sides, but an alternative I did was put a piece of black poster or bristol board (from Dollar Store) on the outsides to create a bit of a privacy wall. They can get stressed out by too much activity around them. But there are those that love to check out whats going on around them ... so it's your call.

    Maybe add more than one spot for feeding ... and be sure it is not too big and that he doesn't get lost in the space. That can happen, odd as it sounds ...

    He seems to has found his food.

    I do plan to put something on that open side, I just want to wait until he is a bit bigger because right now he could hide in there and i wouldn't see him, if I startled him he could escape.

    I went in after lights out and was surprised to see Pongo just hanging around.

    SEE: little guy, huge home! He loves it! I'll dub Pongo the Poster Crestie Juvie!

    I've already switched out the picture I added to my Crestie Summary Guidelines for these two photos. Thanx!

    It's funny, I rarely see Pongo ( which is fine it means he is utilizing his cover which is very natural for him) but when I do he feeezes so I can usually get good pictures of him. I also got a few of his little spotted belly that I need to add
