    I don't think my L. parahybana has ever used her hide and she's never burrowed. She's big, too. I understand when full grown they can have 10" legspans. She cops some attitude frequently. What more could you ask for?

    My P. Regalis is always visable and movin around. Well, at night she tends to do laps of her tank, during the day she's posted up on the side, but she's visible and certainly very attractive. My OBT is also active. She's always moving around and webbing or climbing. Just my two cents, but they're awesome in my experience.
  5. My Nhandu chromatus is out all of the time, and is often exploring and going for walks in the evening. She is not a fast mover, but explores more than most of my others. The Nhandu we had before was the same way.

    There are tarantulas that are VISIBLE, but this does not mean active. Tarantulas are just...not active, I'm sorry, unless you're keeping them wrong or they're a sexually mature male. {D You might see one occasionally take a day to burrow, or move a little dirt around, or web a bit, but they're not fish. They're not going to be moving around frequently being entertaining.

    They're mostly going to sit around and do nothing, like a happy tarantula does. ;)

    My tarantulas will occasionally get it into their heads to go for a slow-motion stroll once in a while, which usually means they move less than a foot total before settling back into inactivity.

    My most active T is an H incei just under 3" which i think would be considered sub-adult for that species. It's always webbing something or digging or moving dirt around. This doesn't mean i necessarily ever see her, more like i notice the changes to her sea of web/dirt/web sandwiches and tunnels. She does come out from time to time and i often catch glimpses of her running around in the tunnels.

    Other than that, i'd say the poec's are the most active. I definitely see them out in the open more than the incei.
