Avic keeps either jumping or falling off the wall


New Member
I recently went to college and left my dad in charge of my tarantula when I’m away. He takes care of her well and checks on her every day, if not every other day. When I come home for the weekend to check on her, every now and then when I’m either watering her enclosure or just getting a look at her she has fallen off, or jumped, off of the wall of the enclosure and landed at the bottom twice. Is there any reason behind this? I’m not tapping on the glass or spraying her with water, so it worries me that one of these times she’s gonna hurt herself. She’s only done it twice, and both times she’s been okay.

Tell you dad that he did great caring for the tarantula, but that it is lonely and that you need another T to keep it company.
