Anyone else besides me ever observe this in your H. lividum? You know how when threatened, your T brings all 4 of their front legs up in the air and show off its fangs. This is when they will strike at you if you come close. As I understand it, their eyes are on the upper side of its carapace. In ready-to-strike position, its entire lower part of the carapace faces you. When you get close to it without making any any vibrational indication of your presence, somehow it knows that you are coming and make a strike for you. I have done this experiment with my lividum many times and I know that vibration is out of the question. Any thought?
