HI all,

My A.seemani has made such a burrow that The flower pot may not be a suitable roof much longer as she continues to dig under it more and more. Anyways, she has completly webbed off the entrance, and often i see a hole in the web where she may have come out for a drink or smething but it is always webbed ALOT and totally 100% shut 90% of the time. It ate just the other day and everything, i thought they only web themselves totally in when their about to molt? or is it just not hungry? she doesnt eat much anyways and is semi-thin but for sure not dangerously thin.

Any insight on why she might be doing this is appreciatd,

Mark

try raising/decreasing:

temperature
humidity
light within the tank

the spider may be trying to keep one of those (or other) factors eith er in or out of its burrow
