    I've watched some foreign folks and couldn't quite get it, is it brack-E-pelma?
    And I just watched a fellow(NO NAMES) Who absoulty botched a rehousing using H2o.
    Thats beyound belief, I understand the theory of rain flooding a burrow. But give it some time to work. Don't just dig em out and dump the mud, hard to believe. I thought I was hard on my first T. I'll bet a half hour would have put the spider on top of the substrate.
