    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.

    So today I found out that my S. plumpies (Charlotte) is really not a morning spider. I'd noticed last night before going to bed that she had decided to fill in her water dish with dirt, for the fun of it I guess. :shifty: Not wanting to do anything whilst I was dead tired, after I got up this morning, I went to change the bottle ca...water dish and found that she had parked her butt on it. Eliciting a sign and grabbing my long soft-bristle brush I veerrry slowly, veerrry gently gave her a tiny tap on the bippy to move her off the dish. Well. To say she did not like me disturbing her morning would be an understatement. Within a millisecond, she had turned around and given me a threat posture and hissed at me. Needless to say, I quickly grabbed the dirt dish with the long tongs while I had the chance and put her new one on the other side. Far away from Ms Cranky Morning Pants. Morale of the story: put the new water dish on the other side and wait for the old one to be unoccupied. o_O

    I noticed my A. eutylenum has molted, maybe a few days ago. Nice.

    Was checking out my spiders tonight and thought it was odd that I couldn't see my MM A. avicularia. Well, turns out he died in a corner. Was his time I suppose (he had eaten a decent sized dubia and had plenty of access to water so yeah).

    Rearranged my juvenile P. irminia's enclosure about two weeks ago and she finally decided to make a nest. That makes me a bit sad, because she used to stay fully visible all the time, but I still should have a window to take look at her.

    My C. darlingi female just gave me her first threat pose and even hissed when I was about to give her a roach. I guess she really is in premolt (didn't refuse food but her attitude changed a lot to skittish and reclusive lately)

    Just found my MM balfouri has now passed. He's possibly been gone for a week but i didn't realise because he hadn't gone into a death curl and remained in the position seen here. Is that normal for a MM?
    He did however get the chance to meet my female before he went so i just hope their pairing was successful.

    Well, in the first bit of good news in at least a week, my new probable C. vonwirthi actually took to one of the starter burrows I made.
