    I've noticed, or should I say not noticed, that my H pulchripes has taken well to his new enclosure. I used a skull as a hide that was previously used with my Lasiodora.

    The only way I know he still exists is that the feeders keep disappearing.

    Would using a different hide such as a coconut shell or a half round help him become more visible or will he just get annoyed that I swapped hides and keep hiding 98% of the time like he's doing now?

    Would just waiting until he gets bigger resolve the problem because he'll become more bold with age?

    Usually I can still see them in the other hides, partially. H pulchripes becomes a trapdoor spider....
