Ok I changed my grammastola rosea's tank which was really tall and got him a kk. He seems pissed off he made a really really thick web in one corner and when I put my hand in he does his threat pose. Anyone know whats wrong with him. He also broke his leg when I changed his habitat (an accident which I feel horrible about) could any of this have anything to do with the way he is acting.

you might have a gravid t (or had an egg sack already). Or you just ticked her off.

I think this is the one he sexed as male.

Maybe trying for a postultimate molt? scratch

Side note . . . using *&$% to cover up profanities is against the rules, but I can tell you wanted to say "hell," which isn't profane enough to be considered breaking the rules . . . scratch scratch

I was just givin' you crap about the title. Razz

Yeah, postultimate = molt after final molt.

A sperm web is a possibility. I didn't even think of that. The only time I've seen this species build one it was like a sheet of silk at a 45-degree angle going between the ground and the wall of the tank.

we have found when rehousing tarantula's into new enclosures, especially when subadult - adult, they tend to sulk!!!
Sulking consists of sitting in one corner putting up a shed load of webbing around them. This can last from anywhere between 24 hours up to a week.

We did our haplopelma sp. 'vietnam' last night and she is in perfect sulking mode at the moment lmao! I'll try and get a picture to see if the webbing is similar.

slings and juvi's just tend to get on with making their new home but as they get older they can sometimes get in a mood lol Very Happy

sperm web is a possibility as well though

If he is in "sulk mode" he will go back to his old self after the week?
