H. himalayana, AF
After a pet hole phase she's now in a 'let's web everything over and make sure not to miss any food' phase since the last molt. The entrance of her burrow is webbed over and closed from the outside, too. I like her much better now :D. Also needs a molt.
One of MM phlogius did the same it never showed itself a bit and then after molting it's just always outside dancing or carrying dirt. a change for the better
 
Mine webbed the enclosure and went in to hiding, it stayed out for a couple hours on the first day. when I seen him I had to get him though first time I seen one for sale in my state
 
As the name says ('himalayana') they are from some regions higher up the mountains in northern India, meaning from some cooler climate. I keep them between 65 and 70F, although others keep them somewhat warmer and a few degrees more are probably ok, and they do like some moisture in the substrate. Humidity is a term from the reptile hobby - no tarantula needs specific humidity in the air, they either need moist substrate, like this one, or dry substrate.
 
Thanks I was on the fence with the temp cause I’ve heard around 76 which I keep most species around 72-80 depending on where they are in my T room
