sounds great! can they climb plastic? also are they fairly calm?(won't attack me if i try to clean cage)Yes, H. car would be the best. I agree. They are very lively and have a great personality. You can witness some of the most epic spider/prey battles with these guys. I have a subadult and two juvies, PM me if interested. Either way, try to get your hands on this species- you'll love them!
Ditto on all comments. No they can not scale glass or plastic. And these wolf spiders haven't ever attacked me but watch out for the front pair of legs. They appear to use them as some form of touch detection by which they will attack immediately or kick in the flight instinct.sounds great! can they climb plastic? also are they fairly calm?(won't attack me if i try to clean cage)
sure What state is lawrence in?These do burrow. Many other Hogna species only burrow when gravid. I'm not sure if this is the case with these guys or not. To be honest, I guess I have never actually seen this species burrow unless the females are gravid. Anyone else have any input on this?
I am using this species along with a few other large Lycosids in a burrowing project, but all of the females I use are gravid. They all burrow readily, but whose to say it's not because they all are gravid...
The ones I have for you, Froggyman, are not kept on deep enough substrate to burrow. Woud you like some pics of the ones I actually have? They're cute little (will be very large) buggers!
Those are sweet Hogs. I'm pretty sure yours are H. georgicola. Those are very pretty spiders. I have about 6 of these girls working for me on my burrowing project.
