Gorgeous trapdoor! Did you get this one from Botar?

Ok, I've read this several times, but just to be sure.. is it true that this species possesses no venom glands?

These guys are awesome!

I got one from botarby8s a while back and mine didn't make a burrow until after it molted either. Ever notice how blue they are a couple hours after molting? Absolutely amazing animals.

Add some green moss around the hole. She should pull that over to make her door. http://people.cryst.bbk.ac.uk/~ubcg60a/malaysia/trapdoorSpider1.jpg

Still might take her a couple of days.
