She's acquainting herself with some new 'digs'. These are such incredible spiders..! The raising-up and rear leg defense posturing is fascinating... And no, this one doesn't like mice - wouldn't touch a small hopper. I don't think the hopper even knew the tarantula was there, it was so high up on its tarsal-tips!

:D

Yes I agree. I have never seen mine actually do the rear leg thing though. But as for beauty I sure agree!!!!!

Isn't it interesting, the differences between individuals of the same species. My robustums go through mice like I do chocolate ;)

Boy Joy, I wish I had your magic touch and could just hold any of my 60 T's whether they be aggressive or not. You are sure lucky! Mine is too skittish for holding.

Bill, one or two of my robustums will regularly eat rat pups, the others will run and hide from them.
