    Checked on my G. pulchripes today. It thoughtfully left me a window in the side of the enclosure I can peek into its burrow. Couldn't see the T so I got a little closer and changed angle. Little booger went into the fiercest defense posture a 1.25 inch T could muster.

    Rehoused my H. sp. blue peru today. I tried the Exo Terra breeding box (medium) for the first time. We'll see how she likes it. ;)
    And I finally finished my new spider shelf in my new spider room (well, the room isn't new, but hardly used before except for storage :p). The room is small but it fits that shelf very well, I think. :D

    Oh, and do you remember when I rehoused my H. chilensis (I really like that new name!) a month ago and how nice it looked?

    Well, it doesn't look that nice anymore. :rolleyes:

    Today I gave up and moved her (still hoping) water dish after she buried it twice. :shifty:
    But you can't be mad at such a cute little thing that looks so proud of its handiwork, now can you? :kiss:

    I think my OBT is broken. I rehoused my 3" OBT tonight, talk about underwhelming. It went very smoothly and I didn't even get a threat posture. Maybe I should have my 1.5" B. hamorii give it lessons, I get a threat posture from that little bugger every time I open its enclosure.

    Love this. My B albo must have been an OBT in a past life. He's sooo feisty! But I think it's cute :)

    This is why he's feisty! He's trying to show you he's mean and angry but you're just going "aww look how cute he is" when he really wants to murder you!

    He is death incarnate and should be treated as such! He needs a skull hide for his evil plans

    sp. ‘flammifera’ is acting....interestingly. Never had a Pampho web up ‘everything’ in its enclosure. Mind you it’s nothing like a heavy webber, but it is doing a decent amount for the genus. Wonder if it’s preparing to molt, even though it’s only been 24 days since the last molt

    I saw a couple of toes from my B.albopilosum sling today. It blocked off all access to its burrow about a week ago and the only insight to the burrow consists of a spot on the backside of the enclosure where it left a tiny window. Through that I can see the very tips of two legs but no movement. I guess I'm now forced to hope for the best and that it'll get bored of hiding and come out in shiny (well... fuzzy) clothes.

    Moving some T's to new digs today so we snagged a few pics in the process of a
    D. diamantinensis and i. mira.

    Husband watered everyone by himself today. I asked if everyone behaved. He said all but Chewy (B albo), because of course he didn't! My hubby said he did the usual angsty teenager crud... bite the water stream, slap the water dish, run into his hide... you know... the usual.

    Caught this little devil in the act of burying her water dish not even 2 hours after I cleaned and refilled it :banghead:

    Woke up this morning to find my B albo has flipped! Really wasn't expecting this as he has only stopped eating about 1 week ago. Very exciting for me as this is the first time seeing a moult. Hoping to get home from work and setup a timelapse if hes still in process

    It just didn't feel right the other way.

    Gave my P. cambridgei a mealworm. I accidentally dropped it into the water dish. I heard a noise when I got the worm out of the dish. Put the worm in a better spot and saw my P. cambridgei strike the side of the enclosure it was hanging out on. Apparently I pissed it off by trying to get it food...

    I tried feeding Dubia to my larger juveniles for the first time, I've raised them all from tiny slings on red runners. The reactions I got were pretty amusing. They ranged from "Run away! Run away!" to " OMG, what is that? I flick upon you" to " I will sit on you while I decide if you are food" to " I don't care what it is, I'm eating it". In the end everyone ate except the hair flicker.

    I didn't think I would ever get an OW, but today I got a P. metallica! I haven't handled Ts before, but she seems to love it, she was even trying to hug me :happy:

    I also got this one, I'm not sure what species she is. She has red spinnerets.
