I finally got some pics of the spider I got from Ollie, thanks again Ollie! I took this first pic of it while I was going down to clean snake water dishes. It's never out and when it is, the slightest wrong spidey sense sends it like an orange fireball into its burrow.

It's hard to see but most of the bottom is covered in webbing, After it sensed me there it again hightailed it for the burrow so I thought I'd take the opportunity to change it's water cap. I actually had to partially destroy some of the webbing in the corner to change it.

Well I left for a couple of hours, and came back to do a bed check and I see it spinning a web over the new water cap. It's really been spinning like crazy the last few days. The next pic is a side shot of the kk it's in. The web goes from wall to wall ground to ceiling.

So do you think it's time for a bigger habitat for this thing? or do I just let it go about it's buisiness? Pretty soon I won't ever see it lol!

Thanks for any input, Mikey.

That's how they like it:)

by the looks of it, a bit more space wouldn't hurt but i don't think that's too important. when mine webs over its water dish (and everything else...) i just mist the webbing every now and then instead of fighting with the webbing constantly.

Watering tube?? Might work and do less damage to the webbing

I don't think that the OBT's can even get at the water when they web over it but it must still keep the humidity up in the enclosure. They'll get moisture from the crickets as long as they are fed regularily.
