    Quite normal. She may be molting, maybe she just wants privacy...my avic. avic and h. lividum for example (among other t's) web up thier funnel web ends and the end of thier burrow respectively, they just pop in and out as need be.

    My B. vagans is only about 1.5", but it stays in its burrow most of the time. Whenever it is about to molt, it fills in the entrance to the burrow and comes out after it has molted and hardened.

    Gem, try to avoid giving in to the temptation of digging it up to check on it; you'll just stress it out. I have a A. seemani that's been closed in since Thanksgiving, and a tiny B.emilia sling that buried herself for almost 7 weeks! (I'll admit, that time I was worried!)She popped out, freshly molted and ready to eat. They know what they need-(better than we do-LOL!)
