Well our P. cambridgei has Totaly sealed herself in her web structure after fasting for a week.
She Killed a cricket today but didn't eat then sealed herself up.
Moult in progress I suppose and I can't wait to see her when she's done.

Here's her handy work.


Her web work from the outside.
Was neat watching her haul the substrat up to camaflauge it.

And from behind, where you can just glimpes her in it in the picture.

She's a good deal more visiable to the naked eye.

Fortress update

Well she's moved around in there a few times. Mostly just lounging. No signs of actualy moulting yet.
I do wonder how she's going to go about it. She built it so she is always resting on a vertical.
But there is some softer incline if she's resting on the web itself and not the glass.

But hey. Our versi molted clinging to a vertical surface so I guess Slinky can pull it off as well.

Update!

Doug H, she was perty good size to start with. :).
I just can't wait to see her and hope she does ok.

Update:::

Slinky flipped over on her back on a recline.
I can see a flexing of legs through the tiny openings she left along the glass.

Molt underway!

Halfway there!!

She wriggled enough that I got a good glance at her transparent new white fangs. The coloring I get to glimpse is Phenominal!

She's wriggling pretty good in there.
