C. fimbriatus Web Maze

She has been in this particular setup for about three weeks now. She uses the web tube on the top left as a hide when she scurries, she eats in the bottom left tube, and she displays hunting behavior in the bottom right tube.
Wow, I think these heavy webbing T's have some of the most interesting when it comes to their behavior. Cool to see, can't wait until I own one. One day... also, how do you water this maze of webbing? Doesn't it need a decent amount of humidity?
 
@WeightedAbyss75 It does, yeah. I never let this species dry out. Just in front of the camera is her water dish. You might notice that there's a downward slope, creating almost a crater around the water dish. Overflow heavily, and the wick effect will carry the water throughout the substrate.

I've come to the conclusion that they likely hunt in the wild directly after a rainfall. She spends 90% of her time way in the back where she's created a cocoon of webbing. When I water like I describe, she displays the behavior you see here and is ravenously hungry. Purely speculation of course, but it makes sense.
 
Love how she webbed the top of the enclosure just for good measure lol. Beautiful webbing!
 
@BobBarley And notice how it's undisturbed! That's a semi-permanent lid. The only access is a 2" window right above the water dish.
 
I got to have one of those. Not only the T looks cool,their webbing is amazing too. <3:)
