This is "CMYK" - one of my first three theraphosidae. When setting up the enclosure I went too big and she ended huddled in a corner. But after I murdered some tupperware and made things more petite she ended up with sweet new digs. And it looks like she is getting comfortable, I love how she goes to work on her moustac- I mean chelicerae. I have actually never seen one preen before but she's adorable.
Or is it something else, something alien? Massaging her silk glands before the Great Webbing? Loosening the limbs for a molt? Flirting with me?
Sorry about the portrait video, I know it is punishable by death so forgive me
