    Impressive. I've seen similar types of formations done with some incei I owned. I'm always very interested why a T will build such a tall burrow. Clearly there's something I don't know, and wish I did!

    Species?

    Day by day, little by little, it’s expanding.

    For my Ornithoctonus aureotibialis, expending of it’s den is still on going. After realizing there is no more height to be added, it took a little detour.

    I love the side tunnels they make after they extend their tube all the way to the top, that's the same thing my Cyriopagopus did. Gotta love the earth tigers.

    Extreme remodeling is now all finished. It now sits on top of it’s burrow entrance most of the time, and hangs around.

    Two weeks ago, I thought it was all finished, but I was too quick to come up with the conclusion of this extreme remodeling. Now there is new project going on. I need to observe for more days to come, but it seems like there are going to be more than one entrance.

    Awesome construction and really cool to see stage by stage. Is this typical behaviour of all earth tigers? This is making me really want one now :D

    Love it! Watching them make enclosures their own is my favourite part of owning Ts.
