Trinket is so cute and fuzzy since her last molt. ;A; ♥ She’s just about 2.75” across now!
WOW HAHAHA okay. So I woke up this
morning afternoon to find Trinket did THIS to her house.
In ONE evening she burrowed her previously thumb-sized tunnel all the way to the bottom of the tank, hollowed out a cave, and tunneled back up to the front to make a little window (you can see the opening on the left side of the dirt pile there). Whereas before she had been working on that little thumb-sized tunnel over about two weeks. For comparison, this is what her home looked like before she demolished it:
WOW SPIDERBABY YOU A CRAZY HO.
Spiderbaby ate a huge cricket then dug a hole in the corner and stuck her head in it and fell asleep.
Now she’s all huddled up with her fat butt sticking up in the air blfblflhfblf
HOW CAN A SPIDER… BE THIS CUTE…
SPIDER BABBY POST
2 days since I got her and she’s clearly much more comfortable with her home, since she’s been wandering all over in broad daylight today, where she was mostly hiding in her hut before.
She’s actually still far too small for me to be able to tell her sex, so pronouns are completely arbitrary at this point, whoops. :x Still no name for her yet, either, I just keep calling her baby, haha. She looks fairly big in these pics, but is really only about as big around as a Gatorade bottle cap, including the legs. LIL BAB.
After all my failed pet obtaining attempts I finally bought this baby. (◡‿◡✿) A Eupalaestrus campestratus, or Pink Zebra Beauty tarantula, they’re generally held as the most docile, hearty tarantula species in the world. Plus they’re primarily diurnal, so I’ll have a friend wandering around next to me at my desk during the day! Whee!
The one I’m getting is only about 1” long so far uwuwuwu what a baby. ♥ It’ll get to about 6 inches at adulthood, wowwie.
