Naww Golden Trapdoor species Euoplos "Grandis" is an inland form, still just as angry as the other GTs, they are all balls of pure rage and so darn quick to act. All my GTs make me nervous and can't help but think "yep, one day, you WILL bite me"
First time this little golden one has risen from the substrate in the two months since she arrived as an unknown trapdoor from a private property in Bellthorpe, Qld. Now that she's a little bigger, and I can see her eyes, I can narrow her down to the genus level.
The big girl, out and wandering about because I had neglected to throw her a bone in the appropriate timeframe. Feeding complete. All is neat. She's tucked away in her burrow, lid closed, to dream her sweet dreams well into the morrow.
My girl appears to be a lefty like me. While burrowing to approximately 12cm, her excess substrate balls have been thrown out of her home and mostly to one side. Some have left their splatter on the ceiling 5cm above her turret.
Circled in red... leftovers out the door.
I'm aiming to get a recording of her hunting prey. she's apparently extra game and not only took down her first large cricket last night but came outside to dump the remains (unless she flung it from her palisade)
