    I love it when the prey just strolls into the spider's mouth. I was doing a feeding demo for friends of friends and I grabbed a cricket to feed to my B. Vagans (she's one of my most active hunters. Who would have guessed?). I went to drop the cricket in the tank and it jumped off of my finger, bounced off of the inside of the glass, and banked right into the spider's face. She didn't even have to move a single leg. Nobody even knew the spider had caught the cricket until I showed them the cricket in it's fangs. Less of a spider demo and more of a magic trick.

    I like it. What is it? Looks like a couple pieces of corkbark leaning together, covered by a mix of peat and moss.

    Thats what it is except I tacked the cork bark together with a couple stainless steel nails.
