I just came home from Petsmart and found my geniculata outside her log and pulling on her fake plant. She uprooted it and is now on top of it, pulling at it, and trying to puncture it with her fangs. Is she just trying to get rid of it, or (this sounds so dumb) could she possibly be trying to eat it? Her movements look just like what she'd be doing if she was eating a cricket. I managed to get a short video of her tugging at the plant. All the action happens in the beginning, so just stop watching it after a few seconds cause it gets boring after that.

Is she just redecorating her home, or, being the little brat she is, trying to annoy me? :D
EDIT:
She's doing something else. She's turned around and now webbing the plant to the log. So... possible pre-molt? Using the plant as a nice object to connect the little silk wall to?

Probably just redecorating. My Chaco pulled one of her plants out and tossed it in her water dish, and then webbed it to her cork bark. :)
