I keep it as a pet, but this species originates from China

Now that is what I call adaptation. :)

Has she built a burrow in the tank? And do you handle her?

Wonderful captures of an amazing looking spider - looks like you could pick it up and use it's rear as an embossing stamp :)

It borrowed already, but sadly, I do not see her "butt" like I thought I would. Will keep looking.

I do not normally handle my spiders, I consider them observation animals, just like you would keep fish. Not to say that I do not have any running all over me once in a while, but that is a different thing! Besides, those types of spiders are generally quite defensive.

All the best

Martin

I thought I would do a little follow up for those interested.

Please forgive the horrible pictures...

As I said, the spider had borrowed, so I finally had time to investigate a little...

First, how the set up looks like, there is about 5" of earth

Decided to lift that leaf and found a nice little trap door.

looked down the hole and there it was, perfectly plugging the burrow, I thought they would do this at the surface, but that is even more efficient... I had a lot of trouble trying to take that picture, sorry again.
