I dug a female out of a 6' burrow along a hillside once.Mine are pretty much pet holes, except that the holes were up against the side of the KK so I was always able to see them.
Seems pretty self explanatory to me...he wants to know where he can obtain this species.
I collected and kept them when I lived down in California years ago. Neat little critter. We called them "Pygmy Grey Tarantulas" back in the day.
Mean as any baboon spider, and worth establishing in the hobby.
On a side note we have an interesting little mygalomorph up this way in the Pacific Northwest, Antrodiaetus pacificus. I find a few males walking around every year, but have yet to locate a female.
Yep, and in WA as a whole, one or two other undescribed Antrodiaetus species as well.I imagine a burrow entrance look just like any other leaf in the forest. I did not know we had those around here.
Thank you John. That was the information I was hoping to get.Bill...from my experiences...the female will make a sac about 30 days after breeding and heavy feeding...they make a hammock style sac and guard it by running around over and under it...these will eat when guarding a sac
Ah... gotcha.Seems pretty self explanatory to me...he wants to know where he can obtain this species.
Totally unsupported theory about this behavior: California mygs like this might have an ability to adapt to seasonal grasses, we only really have an abundance of green foliage that would move a lot with wind during part of our year, perhaps this behavior is a natural mechanism for distinguishing prey from environment?*i think i can probably detune her some more, but i think there is a limit to what i can do. *you can only bend something's nature so much before you break it. *however, if i could selectively breed all the least reactive spiders together... but i'd much rather breed for crazy colors in them, by far!
