Well, today I got my first threat posture by my Euathlus sp. red. Pretty upset about it.

I've seen that once on youtube too. Just goes to show you that any specimen of any species can have a bad day.

My B. smithi/hamorii went from "so docile that she wouldn't even flinch when touched" to "bad-tempered, slap-happy b***h" after her latest moult.

She's proof that even previously "docile" specimens don't always stay that way.

I was filling up her water dish and she was roaming around and coming out of the enclosure. Instead of using a catch cup like I should have, I let her crawl on my hand. She took a few steps and then her front two legs go up and she stayed in that position. She's very skittish sometimes as well.

I got my first before one of my slings got into its new home. I just got him and at the size of a quarter he gave me the threat posture! I was thinking really homey, get your spider butt in there!

You ended with one with the "bad" genes. It's amazingly rare, think of your Red as "unique". :D
