Have a good thanksgiving break!I re-housed my A. seemanni from a sterilite tub into a nice glass enclosure.
I had given my Biology class a quiz while I was working with the spider. I was then planning to follow the quiz with a lecture on “Probability” as we work our way through genetics.
Half the class had been watching me working with the tarantula and hadn't even started the quiz. So class on Friday became a quiz followed by discussions on best beginner tarantula species...questions on techniques for working with venomous spiders and questions about have I ever been bit, or nearly bit.
Thanksgiving Break...a well deserved break.
LOL, Miss Hissypants, my C. marshalli, has also done that instead of digging in her nice new enclosure. Spooder's gonna spood.Don't you love it when you set up a fossorial in a lovely new enclosure with plenty of space (but not TOO much) and the prime opportunity to burrow....
Just for them to do this?
I remember a few months ago I commented that my A. chalcodes and B. hamorii climb the walls when we get rain & someone said that they're reacting to the change in moisture content in the air. Like little fuzzy barometers.Here is something that I've noticed about tarantulas (or spiders in general), they seem to get much more active, or agitated, when a storm front moves in. The bigger the storm front, the more agitated or active they become.
