In the tub??? Nooooo. I mean, she came in this little plastic container and i took the lid off and set her little container in to the tank, hoping she'll just crawl out eventually but i dunno if that'll work... And I really wanna get her out so i can take out the old container cause she molted in it and i wanna look at it. I've been reading stuff about their bite and I just really don't wanna stick my hand in there....do it in the bath tub plug the drain and stick it in it's new home enjoy
Mine is a complete psycho, so sometimes I can't get anything even near her. She either makes a run for it or tries to fang me.Just put the vial it's in, inside the new container, and tap the ground outside the vial to make it come out thinking it's food, keep luring it out, and then when it's far enough away pull the vial out. That worked for me.
I dunno. I can't agree with that completely. My OBT is my first 'aggressive' spider. How else are you supposed to learn? Get a lividum? But then people will say they should get a different 'aggressive' T first. You know what I mean?Last time it took about 15 minutes to rehouse mine, I think. So these guys can definitely be difficult to deal with. I don't think anyone should get a P. murinus without some experience of aggressive spiders.
It's scary that some pet stores sell these to beginners.
