You're lucky yours isn't psycho. My adult male attacks and bites anything that comes near him. He's my only invert I haven't held because he scares the crap outta me Razz

A friend of ours had one that was psycho, but because she had a "hat" -- the carapace didn't come off properly when she molted.

A hat? lol.


so, I just caught her digging a shallow hole in the sub, and taking a dump in it.

she only seems to do the toilet in certain places in the tank, the waterbowl seems to be her favorite. Razz

i've noticed a couple of other "holes" in the sub as well.

I never knew T's were so clean. scorps just crap where they want.

we have a silver trap door spider... It goes up to the top of the enclosure, sticks it's rear end between the air vents and squirts spider poo upto 6" away... covering the neighboring critter keeper in poo!

We wondered why we couldn't find any mess other than cricket husks in the critter keeper. It like to poo over others!!!!!

I'm deadly serious. We didn't know they could shoot poo until we put a post up on the BTS and apparently trapdoor spiders are known for shooting poo quite a distance!

well, just got a bit of a surprise there, my rosehair has burrowed! I know that rosehairs burrow naturally, but I didn't think they did it much in captivity.

and It seems she has connected it to her hide... right under the substrate and into her hide, like a secret escape route.

That's the idea. Razz

When Lori gave her girl a good 3-4 inches of substrate, she made some nice deep burrows.

Hmmm.... mabye that's what the poo-holes were all about. Razz

but... I don't have that much substrate in the tank, do you think i should add some more?


I honestly didn't expect her to do this.

Looks like she's got a cool setup. Very Happy Nice little burrow entrance -- reminds me of a hobbit-hole.

I'm not so sure she's going to molt soon -- her abdomen looks kind of pale, especially in pic #3.

Yay! she's making another burrow! she's digging in her hide, there are big balls of substrate outside her hide, and I saw her walking out holding a big chunk nearly bigger than her.



cute.
no pics though. Sad
