I was watching my G.rosea (I know you're talking about Avics) cleaning itself the other night and it seemed to be making "gloves" for it's back feet, which it then rubbed itself down with on the abdomen and other legs. I was very impressed. I mention this because to web up it's feet it had to twist it's abdomen quite extremely to one side.
The silly thing molted last night! I thought for sure it was going to die. Ive decieded that I need a memo so I know a molt is coming LOL I dont know why that feat freaks me out so much. Its gone from the blue and black chevron abdomen to the red. Its soooo pretty : )
Beware though; one of these molts will most definitely spark the strong fascination for the inside of its web
Avics are very beautiful, as well as many obligate burrowers, but how strong of a fascination do you need with these guys and primarily gals to appreciate them over time? Well, perhaps it's more individual than I think(the fascination of web-insides and undergrounds). I would like to think so. At least when it concerns Avics.
