Despite the fact you're quoting someone from 2004.....I tested the ping pong thing a little bit ago in this thread: http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?216602-Tarantula-Ping-PongNow that's good to point out! I wouldn't be surprised if it was cos they thought it was an eggsak!
COOLInspired by the story of that B. smithi that likes to roll her water dish around, I decided to get my adult rosehair a toy to see what she did with it.
I picked her up a pingpong ball and washed it really well to make sure it didn't have any contaminants, and then I just left it in her container. She didn't do too much with it at first, but I would catch it at different places, presumably because she was moving it around. Sometimes it would be in her hide, sometimes on top of it, sometimes in her water dish.
Right now she's really fiddling with it a lot - she has it in her water dish and she's rolling it over and over and over again, almost as if she's using it like a tarantula exercise machine!
It doesn't seem to be bothering her to have it around - in fact, she has been more active "playing" with her toy. Maybe this is the solution to the "pet rock" syndrome.
Probably because people putting plastic plants in an enclosure has more to do with providing some semblance of their natural environment and providing places to hide than decorating it for their own amusement.People put plastic plants in tanks all the time for their own designs and amusement. How's that different? xD
