The beautiful dark chocolate girl in the process of being rehoused. Her burrow started within two minutes.
I think the abdomen patterning of Atrax sutherlandi makes them, perhaps, the most beautiful atracid.
I arrived home from work this morning and started feeding some of the critters. When I lifted the lid on one of my southern NSW funnel-webs (A. sutherlandi) her burrow was closed. Lifting her container to have a little looksie this surprise greeted my previously tired eyes.
After finishing the nightshift and running errands into the afternoon, I had enough time for a short jaunt through local bushland followed by a coffee, with some new found friends, prior to picking my youngest up from school.
A trio of A. robustus mygs. Approx. 8mm, 15mm, and 20mm body length.
