Here is Archimedes, my 5" G. rosea female (name was given before I found it it was a she). This was the first (and only) time I've seen her drink...

My Pokie only drinks from his dish until right after I change the water... very picky.

Spiders are cool and never cease to amaze....always doing something we don't expect.

Thanks for the pic!

Caught my Rosea the other night doing the same thing, but of course, it was like some horrid crime for me to see her doing that and she scurried back to her hide.. lol

Sometimes shes calm, other times she thinks she is an OBT.. rarely is she a pet rock.. But thats what I love about her.. You never can tell what on earth she will be doing from day to day.

Now my B. Smithi Pet Rock.. thats a different story.. Sometimes I wonder if he isnt carved out of stone.

thats so cute! lil spider drinking! My spider does weird things with the water. I see it splashing around in it and then going all the way to the bottom of his burrow and using its wet legs to construct it better, then going back and splashing around in the water again!

Interesting. Makes sense too. What species?

I caught my pulchra drinking a few weeks ago...just moseyed rigth over to its bottlecap and stuck its face in (and its ass straight up in the air in the process) --it was quite amusing to watch

Its always something neat to see a T having a slurp at the local watering hole. Before investigating T's I never thought I would get to see one doing something like having a drink. :)

Very nice pics. I catch my male getting a drink all the time, its always good to know that they are putting the water to good use.
