Hapalopus sp. Colombia Large Adult Female
I hadn't fed this girl for a couple of weeks, so she was out and about while feeding yesterday.
That's the only time I see her - when she is driven out of hiding by hunger.
@Ungoliant I agree! And, at least, she stayed out eating and happy dancing for a while after I fed her so I could appreciate her beauty. Most of them grab the offering and go back into hiding with it.
 
@VanessaS My N. incei is like that. Most of the time, I just see her feet sticking out of her burrow when she is hunting. When I feed her, I get a few seconds of viewing time before she drags the prey into her hole to eat in peace.

But man, is she enthusiastic about food.
 
I had one that I picked up at an expo. Very tiny looking spider. About one week after I picked it up it webbed up its hide and went to molt. I was surprised when the little one finally emerged and was fully hooked out MM. I did not have a female so I traded him to a guy for credit towards an X. immannis sling and a promise to kick me down a couple of slings if the breeding is successful. Wonderful species and will get another one sometime.
