    One of my Hapalopus sp small slings likes to play with his food. Every time I've fed it (prekilled superworms that are admittedly kinda big for it), it climbs under the food to eat it upside down. It makes me laugh because it's like he's pretending the superworm is eating him when I know the worm is dead and he's not even in the slightest bit of danger

    Every spider is a good spider in my books today. Every sling (-premoults) ate like champs. Took down the cricket no questions asked.

    This little one is starting to show adult colours. I’m so proud. B. bohemei.

    My new female N. incei last night. I had just finished settling her in, and she was already drinking from her water dish. I just think drinking spiders are the cutest things!

    One of my C versicolor slings molted and gained some serious size

    Awhile back, Regina the G. pulchripes got stuck trying to go into her hide

    And then there was this
    And then she noticed me taking her picture
    And of course, this gem

    When the washing machine turned on a few minutes ago, Wallflower (my mature male Dolichothele diamantinensis) started drumming on the side of his cage in response to the vibration. :p

    Yeah, that one :hilarious: never gets old! And actually speaking of which, tomorrow is the one year anniversary of that picture. How about that.

    I asked my mom to pick up crickets for my Hogna c. while she was out last night and she came back with a box of huge crickets (half of them dead but the other half was fine) I knew the crickets were probably too big for her seeing they were about the same size as her body but I decided to drop one in anyway and she grabbed it by the neck and waltzed right into her hide. Made me feel like a proud father seeing her do that

    It's been a joy to watch my tiny Versi sling getting fatter and fatter. I need to take a picture sometime of it taking down a cricket. It's super cute! :)

    The wee chubby spider is about to become even fatter. I absolutely love my Ts when they are so tiny (and *hungry*). It's made me decide to bring home some dwarf species and True Spiders. :D

    Bit late to the party, but just had to add this photo:

    I spooked my B. Albo when refilling its water dish, and she nose-dived into the substrate and tried to bury herself... note that her hide is uncovered on the other side, but it seems that she wanted to be an ostrich that day...

    My spiders have been so good lately.

    The last three molts were so easy to get to and beautifully intact :shame:

    My B.Emilia is my only T (for now at least :angelic:) and since yesterday she started to chill outside of her hide a lot more. Usually she would stay in her hide almost 24/7, so I was very happy to be able to observe my fuzzy girl some more and I witnessed her grooming herself for the first time. Unfortunately she was sitting at a spot in the enclosure where I couldn´t get a good picture of it without taking the tank off the shelf, so I just let her do her thing and kept watching her.
    It looked really cute :smuggrin:

    Sorry for the awful picture but here is my M. robustums redecorating result. He thinks he's hiding, and technically he is because his hide is now at the bottom and right above where he's sitting :hilarious:
