Here's a couple pics of the spines on rear legs IV that M. robustum use in their defense when spinning.

Scott, how did you manage to get that close, or was that through the glass/plastic?

Nope, that was up close and in person. I have to give the big girl credit, as long as I don't make any sudden moves, she's very good with sitting still for me to take my pics. When she got disturbed, she just ran right into her hide. Not a leg spin or flicked hair in site. :)

I almost got one of those but they were $50:( . I had to settle for the GBB spiderling $30.
