Advertisement This evening while tending to the 8-legged pets, i found that both of my P. audax spiders have passed away. They were both WC adults, one i've had since last year. I know that their lifespan isn't long, but i was expecting them to last until fall. I feel responsible somehow, like I did something wrong. Two weeks ago i moved their enclosures from the bookshelf in the hallway to a shelf in my computer room. I wonder if that small change affected them in some way, and now i worry that i shouldn't move my tarantula slings in here as planned (they're on the kitchen counter, waiting on me to finish re-organizing some rooms). Their little bodies are sitting next to me...at first i felt numb with shock, but now looking at them sadness is creeping in and taking over. I don't want them to be gone. Parker and M.J., rest in peace.
