    I haven't seen my P. irminia and G.pulchripes for over a month. And then suddenly they either open their hides or just come out on one day. Finally. I can't wait to see how bigger my P. irminia has become.

    Darn spiders...my Sericopelma sp Azuero Panana is the largest spider I have and the only one big enough eat adult male Dubia...which I have too many of. But will she? Absolutely not :banghead: She won't eat anything larger than a small Dubia or an adult red runner. I guess my isopods are going to have a feast.

    Sooo, about that G. pulchripes. It took a small roach and decided to disappear again. P. irminia has shown some of those cute legs, still being very shy girl. To be honest I'm starting to think about rearranging her enclosure to encourage staying outside more.

    My A. seemanni sling has been working and excavating whole enclosure to the point there's almost no substrate at the bottom keeping it from falling on its head. Crazy little guy.

    My G. pulchra that I was worried about is doing great! Should be on track for a molt by like 2050. My E. campestratus sealed itself off in its burrow, so 2050's looking like a good year...

    In other news my juvenile G. actaeon molted today, and my juvenile Nicaraguan B. albo molted a few days ago. I'm loving the warmer weather! Fingers crossed for more!

    Rearranged old home for my P. irminia so she could feel more secure inside and encourage spending time outside of her hide. I can't believe people say these tarantulas can be such devils. She almost didnt move, just sat on her cork bark which I took out and placed in catch cup. Sweetheart

    My B. albo has bulldozed all the substrate in his hide and has been dragging webbed up sub all around the enclosure. Seems happy with the rearrangement! It wanted more sub on top of the hide.

    No today but yesterday, my juvenile female G. actaeon was roaming around her enclosure and drumming a little every now and then. So adorable :D

    @cold blood Sometimes when we boot up the computer, Squirt (my mature female Psalmopoeus cambridgei) drums on the glass in response. I'd been hearing about this from my husband for a while, but I heard it for the first time the other day.

    After almost 2 weeks of everyone sealing their hides there has been movement this morning my Davus pentaloris had dumped its molt outside it's hide.

    I fed superworms for the first time.
    Also, my B. albo sling stayed out for a while after I took the lid off instead of instantly disappearing.
