I love the Pterinochilus genus. Today I got my second one (a Dodoma Baboon *Pterinochilus lugardi*) and these guys are web addicts. when I went to unravel the piece of paper towel he was in he made something that looked like a clear silk webbing around his self in the napkin...I never seen a tarantula (out of the 14 or so I have besides my other Pterinochilus) web so quickly without even being in a stable enclosure.

When a T webs this quickly does it show one of its qualities as being able to quickly adapt to different environments?

Once I get my 10 gallon one divider tank I'm putting both of my Pterinochilus species in it, one on each side.

Not that he is quickly adapting but he's trying to quickly adapt. Some aren't sucessful no matter how hard they try.
