A small video shot on location in Malaysia 2002. This piece shows the habitat and burrows of an Ornithoctoninae species.

These large funnel shaped burrows were quite shallow and the bank was loose dirt supported by large root systems.

Enjoy!

hi Mark

is it common to see horizontal burrows in steep slope like that in the wild?

Yes very common to find living like this. Although both species shown had burrows further back into the forest, but the greater concentrations were in the banks.

However I have found ?Lampropelma sp and another species in Sarawak Borneo with burrows on flat ground these were very deep around 1.5 metres
