    Harley is being super shy atm. She was being SO still I thought she hadn't made the trip...she did she's just noping it out right now haha and every so slowly moving towards one of the exits.I unplugged both ends to double check her status.

    OK name 'suggestion'
    Only a suggestion. ... I like it but...-shrugs -
    Anansi (pronunciation Ah-nahn-see) the trickster is a cunning and intelligent spider, and is one of the most important characters of West African and Caribbean folklore. He is also known as Ananse, Kwaku Ananse, and Anancy;

    I like it! Ananasi (close but different) is also a type of create one can be in the LARP world I larp in (World of Darkness). They are spider changers (like werewolves, but spiders).

    The sassy one (gigas #2) shall be Anansi

    The exploratory one (gigas #1) shall be Ananasi.

    Yes close, but different for different personalities and they are kinda like twins and for spiders that whole similar name thing is cute. Not for humans imo.

    Also, Harley has left the straw and immediately blended into her sub. If I ever catch her not blendy, I will take a picture.

    As of now, no sign of Harley, but Tappies are good at blending haha. I had the same issue with Dorado when i first got him, now he likes being on display. But, I left a meal in there for her this morning so I hope she is hungry for a feast :)

    Still no visible sign of her beautiful self yet. However, the cricket is very dead and was not this morning so she most definitely tagged it for it must have been bothering her beauty hide. Eventually she will realise I love her haha.

    Anansi is being sassy but is good. Moves the to threat pose of adorable the second I look at him and Ananasi is being his usual shy self hiding and just exposing his feets.

    Since Harley won't show just yet here is Dorado's butt since he wanted to moon me as I gave him water:

    I will say that Harley did have a plump butt so I feel like she could be pulling a Dorado and hunkering down as the cricket was most definitely tagged (the infamous dead venom black color of poison haha) but she is still refusing to be seen. Unlike these two:
    20160806_103908.jpg Ananasi-more of a hider than her sibling
    20160806_104017.jpg Anansi-always on display. He knows he's beautiful haha

    *Ahem* After much looking for a burrow to see if she was doing as Dorado did I found what I think to be an entry way. There are these black little objects in the photo which I am not sure are her feets or the trick of the light:
