Very cute! They grow very fast :)
I've noticed that as slings they like deep substrate so that they can burrow and stalk their prey.

Most slings feel secure when they can hide, as these spiders get larger they generally are on " display " more...

it can hide all it wants its whole life. i just like to know what to expect. knowing that its a roll of the die, there are still some species that will have a tendancysit out ( like smithis) or hide forever ( like my E. mirunis

I love Nhandus ...I have a chromatus and a coloratovillosus. They are both beasts! They never turn down food! they are a little skittish though.

About half of my N. chromatus slings do burrow, and the other half are usually visible. After light out most are out.

Nice looking sling. Can I ask waht you paid for it?
