i have noticed 2 of the curly hair slings i got cleaning themselves......but the wierd thing is, they were almost laying over on their side to do it........this isnt a moult attempt.......they are still on their legs....just looks like they are laying over on their sides and cleaning their feet....anyone else seen this??
also i fed them again today.....3 of them eating now....the three that are eating are getting fat :) ..havent seen any of the 5 burrowers today, but i threw food in there anyway...lots of peat piled up in deli cup...so i guess they are "going to town" with their burrows......just wish i could see them in there....

I have seen my Rose Hair do this many times and my old Aphonopelma Seemani did this as well.

My curly molted last night. Its really showing some nice color now. Starting to get pretty hairy too. I bought it July 7 th. It was aprox. 1/2"long. Its molted about every 30 days. Its about 2"long now tip to tip.

Kosh,
yep, they do that ...it's really funny to watch!
I've got more burrowing every day, so it's hard to know how they are doing.
I gave them a change of diet this time with fruit flies...they loved them!
I'm going to cut up mealworms as well.
I can't get pinners unless I order them, and it's such a pain that I'll stick to other food
