    To Drink or Not To Drink

    An indecisive tarantula.. He immediately rushed to the water dish just to find his dish was empty. So I refill it. But after that, he stood there quietly... Sometimes, I don't understand tarantula, like what's on his mind...

    Did my Albo just pose a Dead Curl?

    Hello guys :) long time no see... I want to ask you a question. This evening, I found a weird position of my T's legs. Four of his leg is not really curled, but only its toe bending inward. I immediately spray the ground with water. But he quickly covered his face with legs, include the legs...

Just today he asked how was the first tarantula I bought from him and took a picture of it to show him. After that he replied...
