how long has she been in it or have you redone the enclosure recently? could just be acclimation issues. give us some info about how long she's been in it, if changes have been made, etc.

Was it recently rehoused? If so, it's likely just settling in.

Edit* Too slow :p

Our B. Boehmei does that too as well as some of our Grammastolas. It was funny when our big Boehmei female was totally gravid and was too fat to climb the walls anymore. No worries.

I had that problem too. I found that when I put a place for her to hide, she stopped climbing her enclosure. I bought one of those coconut shell shell hideouts for her.

I hope this helps
