I have 4 avics at the moment, two 2" versicolor, one 3.5" A. Avic. And one 3" A. Sp guyana.

There all pretty quick I guess, but the guyana...he's in a league of his own, I'm starting to believe the teleporting rumors 0.o

For the third time now during feeding, I have dropped a cricket in his enclosure, turned away for no more than a few seconds, looked back, and the guyana had the cricket happily fanged. Now here's the trick, each time the spider has been in the same location as it was before I put the cricket in. (It hangs out on the top of the enclosure, cricket was placed on the bottom of said 12" high enclosure, each and every time)

So, 3 feedings with this guyana in my care, 3 bizarre feeding experiences. Did I get an Avicularia sp. "mage" instead of a guyana?

That's what you get for looking away. Your Avic is using "The Force" on you LOL

Oh man you're right, I hadn't even considered if he were trained in the force, he could be a sith lord in disguise 0.0

@cold blood how do you deal with your force adept spiders? Just hope they don't get their legs on a few lightsabers?

The first thing you need to do is take a midichlorian count...anything over 10K and you need to worry, anything over 20 K (like Anniken, aka Darth Vader) and you need to keep the t on permanent lockdown or they can start building death stars.:astonished:

The next thing you need to do, is to get training in the jedi arts.:meh:

These are not the crickets you're looking for.
Ahhh, the old Jedi mind trick...it only works on the weak minded though;)

Start knocking on his enclosure before you open it up.. You don't want to scare him while he is playing with his lightsaber...

My big avic is a slow chill girl, my 2" versicolor is pretty slow, but my 3+'' Avicularia urticans falls into the ninja bracket also.
