You shouldn’t need to keep the substrate moist. An adult LP really just needs access to a water dish and you could wet individuals corner to see if it prefers that but it sounds like she’s just settling in and exploring (if you recently rehoused her) or doesn’t like having moist substrate

You have moss all over the place, though. She can't find anywhere to walk without moss. They don't want to be walking on wet moss all the time. Keep the moss to a couple of small areas, so you can keep it a bit damp during the drier months, but you don't need wet moss all over the enclosure.

Is that a fluorescent lamp? If so, you have here the answer. They emit heat, and the T is atracted to that heat.

seems like normal behavior

my L. parahybanas always circle the tank and put web all around, she even put some web from the middle of the lid straight to the ground :)


i catch her on the glass just as much as anywere else, it seems to be just more space gor my females

now if it was avoiding the ground that might be something to look out for (too wet or loose substrate, etc.)

i personally dont use any moss

the enclosure looks very nice to the human eye, im just not sure how bothered the spider would be by the light, maybe add some more cover?

Its not. Just light, no heat
What kind of light are you using, led or fluorescent tube lamp? The fluorescent lamp emit a little bit of heat, just enought to attract the T.
