My A. geniculata seems to greet me every morning when I walk up to her enclosure. She is in an acrylic box inside a microclimate with 16 other tarantulas. Every morning I get up and check on them. When I walk up to the box of spiders, she is always near the back closest to the heater. She will then come walking up to the front of her acrylic box nearest me. Non of the other spiders ever respond. Anyone ever seen behavior like this? I am wondering if she has concluded that when looming mass is near, food sometimes appears making it some sort of feeding response.
