T keeps disappearing

Hello. I am new to owning a tarantula. It is an avicularia avicularia. It keeps DISAPPEARING. Idk where she goes. I just see empty tank for a while and then she’s like right there. Does anyone know what she’s doing?

She either owns an invisibility cloak or is time travelling :p It is a bit disconcerting as I worry what if they have escaped, but I try to reassure myself that the lid is on secure and that if there was an escape it would be off ;)

You should try some really small slings, I currently have a couple of Cyriocosmus elegans slings, these are so small, that unless they move they look exactly like a grain of substrate. These are small, possibly about 3-4 mm at the most.

I do have a Cyriocosmus elegans sling, not quite as small as that but she was about 5mm when she arrived. I have learned to accept the anxiety of sling enclosures looking empty :p I meant more when a larger tarantula keeps disappearing - that is extra disconcerting lol.
