Pterinopelma sazimai hide n seek

She thinks I don't see her!
It can be annoying because she does it every time I lift the lid, and I can never get a good photo!
She reminds me of an overgrown sling in the way she acts. Every time I open the enclosure she freaks out and dashes about, then dives over her hide to the back (which has become her hide). Why she's chosen there - she doesn't even fit!! I may rejig her enclosure soon or get a different piece of cork bark. Will probably do it when I get a more see through enclosure, as she's stunning so I want good photos!
 
My sazimai was in a little glass jar that was about 3 x dls when I got it. Super defensive. I couldn't even open the lid! The spider would climb up onto the lid and stick it's fangs through the airholes!

I rehoused it and now it doesn't even leave its burrow. I think it is about 2.5-3" now and is in it's permanent enclosure. These guys are on the small size correct?
 
Mind you, one thing I will say is I have never seen a happier looking spider as her when she's eating. She does look like the happiest spider in the world when she's got a cricket stuffed in her face Lol

I believe they get around the 6" mark so medium I'd say. Think mine is somewhere between 4-5". Will have to try measuring it soon.
