Had to move this little one to put in a better hide and managed to get some photos in the meanwhile. The second one's sealed itself in its burrow so I'm expecting that one to moult soon too Smile

It's eating now and love the way it hunts after crickets Smile. It's made a little tube web and burrow at the bottom of the cork bark with two entrances and if you put a cricket directly inbetween it will slowly hang a leg or to out of one and then the other like it can't make up its mind which is closer to the tasty cricket lol. Once the decision is made, of course, it shoots out and the crix don't stand a chance but the decision-making before then always makes me laugh Very Happy

It's in one of those click&lock tupperware containers so the sides aren't that transparent but I'll give it a try this evening Smile

Dont remind me Very Happy you should see the lid! The tupperware isn't so bad though as the drill bit goes through quite quickly and easily. Now, when I decided to have a go at constructing my own terrarium out of acrylic sheets it took me a whole day to do the holes Shocked. The acrylic is much harder and it just takes that little bit extra time and effort to drill a hole through, it really added up time-wise. So it was a fun project but I only made one coz I realised that if I added up the cost of the sheets, sealant, delivery and all the drilling time it was probably easier and cheaper to buy something from ExoTerra... Did turn out pretty nifty though! Smile

junshern222: Yeah, I didn't expect them to be so colourful when they arrived, virginia's photo really didn't do them justice Smile
