Advertisement Hello! After a good bit of research I’ve taken the plunge and bought my first Honduran Curly Hair. I’m enjoying this experience so far and after lurking this forum for days I have made an account too. It’s been an interesting experience so far. First day I brought it home and housed it. Must have over dampened the substrate because it would just chill on the walls. Then the next night, it started doing laps around the cage and even biting the wire mesh top (looked like it was doing pull-ups. GET SWOLL). After a good bit it has calmed down and laid some silk onto the top of the substrate (Creature Soil jungle mix). It likes to hang around its hide although not go in the hide. I was told by an employee at the store it was purchased from that I should wait 3 days until feeding. Judging by the laps around the tank it’s made, I waited two days and this spider gobbled up that cricket quite effortlessly (stupid cricket hopped right in front of the T). Not even a trace of bolus! Since then it has been hanging in a corner by its hide - sometimes in the low-rider stress position and sometimes slightly more relaxed. Slightly. I was beginning to get concerned because it’s only done 180 degree turns in the same spot when nobody is looking, but to me this amounts to normal behavior. I haven’t even had it a week at this point! Not going to post tank setup (I know someone is going to say “more substrate!” but I’m not interested in stressing the animal more at this point) but it’s basic with an angled cork bark hide at one end and a water dish on the other. The animal is housed on top of a bookshelf slightly in the apartment door. It’s a fairly decent volume of traffic since the kitchen table is a few feet away (and the kitchen) and the living room is less than 10 feet away. I’m light-footed but my wife is slightly heavier on her feet sometimes. And the three year old, hooo boy.....but hopefully the bookshelf and books on it absorb most of the floor vibrations. Anyway, right now is low key late night chill time for the T and myself. Thanks for reading and here are some photos of it drinking, eating, and relaxing.
