    All 4 had webbed profusely, all lived in a maze of tunnels and all are pretty fast so I thought I may have some fun.4

    First up was Ratta, the Thrigmopoeus truculentus, who made things easy. I lifted out the web and plant and Ratta came too calmly walking out of the old webbing into its new home.

    Next came Han, a Chilobrachys sp. Blue Vietnam, who made a small bid for freedom but was easily caught and cupped but elected to stay on the paper for long enough to grab a photo before it too walked into its new home

    Now came the fun. Saan, my Ceratogyrus darlingii, was not going to be disturbed and reared up in threat almost falling over backwards in its anger. At the 3rd attempt I managed to coax it into the catch cup but then it didn't want to come out. In the end I left it to make its own way out but then I had to fill its water bowl and it tried to escape again, almost getting a leg trapped when I put the lid back in place.

    And still not looking happy

    Lastly was Tahm, the Chilobrachys sp. Kaeng Krachan, who literally jumped from old to new container. DSCF9425.JPG
    Pasodama, LC72uk, Tricocyst and 2 others like this.

    Both these 2 are out and about most days or were in their old containers, it'll be interesting to see what they do in their new, bigger homes.

    Now that mine's a mature male I do see him a lot more than I used to. He was the definition of a pet hole when he was smaller. :D

    These 2 are between 1-2", so quite a lot of growing to do yet.
